The Civil Service Institute (CSI), the training arm of the Civil Service Commission, puts the spotlight on the concept of Servant Leadership in this year’s first offering of the CSI Leadership Series to be held March 16, 2016.

This learning event aims to create awareness and interest among present and future leaders toward understanding the meaning and importance of servant leadership in the context of public service. It also seeks to inspire the participants to promote an organizational culture that seeks and prioritizes to serve people first. Read the course details.

Robert Greenleaf, who coined the term “servant leadership”, said that becoming a servant leader starts with the natural desire to serve first and not to be served.

Some of the country’s top leaders, including Civil Service Commission Chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala; Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, Chairman Emeritus of the Institute for Solidarity in Asia; and Amando M. Tetangco Jr., Governor of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, are expected to speak and share their experiences in this one-day forum.

Public sector executives, managers, directors, and division chiefs or those in equivalent positions are invited to participate.

The CSI Leadership Series is a quarterly learning and networking event designed to inspire government executives, directors, and managers to continually enhance their leadership effectiveness. It showcases the best practices of successful leaders and managers in both the government and the private sectors.
