Discover the Model that is Transforming Individuals, Teams, and Organisations Worldwide

27 to 30 July 2020

Four Online Sessions of

The Serving Leader Webinar

Becoming an effective leader isn't a one-time event or destination.
It's a journey requiring ongoing growth, support, and learning. Based on positive feedback from senior management of major NPOs and alumni of the Serving Leader Seminars and Programmes since 2016, Integrative Learning Corporation and Newton Institute are pleased to offer another online seminar on The Serving Leader Model.

This proven leadership approach has been a catalyst for dramatically transforming individual leaders, teams, and organisations worldwide. Based on the best-selling book, The Serving Leader, this training will equip you and your teams with practical strategies to awaken, align, and achieve great purpose.


1. WHO are you?
DNA: What is your organization’s unique design?
2. HOW will you operate?
Values: What are the guiding principles that define your organization’s behavior and priorities?
3. WHAT will you accomplish?
Mission: What’s the story you want to tell in 2-3 years?
4. WHY do you exist?
Great Purpose: Why does your work matter and how will you make the world a better place?


You will learn how to:

• Discover the power of a fully awakened workforce.
• Clearly define your mission and vision.
• Fully engage and align your teams.
• Create a serving culture.
• Ensure values are practiced, not just preached.
• Improve team unity and productivity.

Like the way the course is “tailored to the leadership team and discussion/learning is contextualized”

Terence Yow

Divisional Director, AMKFSC


"Benefitted greatly from the course because “John has summarized the key learnings and contextualized the Serving Leader Model to our current leadership framework. He has kindly affirmed our work and enhanced our thinking/plans to bring it to be an even stronger plan. I am looking forward for sustainable ideas on cascading and embedding the Serving Leader culture in AWWA”

Cynthia Lee

Director, HR Headquarters, AWWA

Aspect of the course appreciated most is “the template and bring a deeper understanding on linking Vision, Mission, Values to what we do”. Will recommend this course to others “because the Word forms the bedrock of this program”
