Do You Recognize Any of These Scenarios?

  • You understand advancing your career requires effective contemporary leadership skills…

  • You recognize ‘weak spots’ in your organization that could be solved by effective leadership…

  • You’re frustrated by poor – or lacking – leadership in your organization…

You are not alone.

In fact, I understand completely.

If we haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting, I’m Ben Lichtenwalner, founder of Modern Servant Leader. I have been a lifelong student of leadership, and have been helping develop better leaders through my courses and programs since 2004.

I have experienced firsthand that poor leadership destroys the morale, enthusiasm, and drive of what were engaged and dedicated employees. I spent too many years watching the fire be put out in formerly passionate, hard-working people.

After being put in a position where I was to implement the directives of poor leaders in a way that was detrimental to both employees and companies, I vowed then and there to do all I could to help prevent as many people as possible from working for bad bosses.

And that’s why I created my 7 Core Leadership Principles To Enhance Employee Engagement & Improve Profitability course.
