VISTA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Since its inception in 2009, Servant Leadership Institute (SLI) has been located on the Datron World Communications, Inc. campus in Vista, CA. SLI is a training resource center created by Datron CEO Art Barter to serve and help grow leaders determined to make a positive difference in their organizations and communities. SLI resources include many field-tested publications, training programs, consulting and leadership workshops, and special events.
“Our goal is to challenge traditional perceptions of leadership and to teach a smarter way to lead that truly makes a difference in our world.”
The Datron facility was an ideal start-up location for SLI. In the beginning SLI’s main purpose was to train all 250-plus Datron employees in servant leadership. Today, SLI has expanded its successful Datron servant leadership transformation case study into serving other organizations and businesses interested in improving their culture as well.
“Our new facility a few miles away in Carlsbad near Palomar Airport, is an ideal location for training and hosting more events, workshops, and group meetings,” said Barter, who also serves as SLI CEO and President.
Servant leadership is a smart leadership approach with a moral imperative to lead for the sake of others. “Servant leadership has been called the most successful leadership strategy in overcoming lackluster employee performances, poor financial results, and executive self-interests,” added Barter. “Our goal is to challenge traditional perceptions of leadership and to teach a smarter way to lead that truly makes a difference in our world.”
SLI’s annual Winter Conference took place last month in San Diego drawing people from all over the country. The sold-out conference featured leadership experts including: bestselling authors John Maxwell and Ken Blanchard; Southwest Airlines president emeritus, Colleen Barrett; CEO of Popeyes®, Cheryl Bachelder; and president of Medical Sciences at Life Technologies, Ron Andrews.
“The conference opened my eyes to what it really means to be a leader,” said attendee, Sam Anguiano of GTC Systems in San Diego. “As a result, I have made a personal commitment to help others and lead with others’ growth in mind.”
SLI resources include:
- Field-tested servant leadership books and training manuals
- Servant leadership training programs, coaching and consulting
