Praise from industry leaders for Servant Leadership RoundTable:
"The LRT is life-transforming training. It helps articulate leadership skills you have, and ones you need. It is excellent on so many levels. Every leader in every community will benefit."
~ Jeremiah Swor
"LRT was a great program for me to ask some very difficult, but important questions about myself as a leader. The environment is open and it is a comfortable place to make you vulnerable to the point of humility."
~ Isaac Uphus
"LRT is not just a random class with topics that are dated. It is constantly adapting to the ever-changing work and business climate. I learned more about my leadership strengths and shortcomings here than anywhere else. Couple that with measuring servant leadership against that of Christ really gives you something great to aspire to."
~ Kevin Taylor
"Mark Deterding did a great job of presenting the material in a manner that you could easily understand and fit into your own situations and experiences. I highly recommend the Leadership Roundtable to anyone that is looking to improve his or her leadership style and take it to the next level."
~ Kevin Taylor
"Marrying the principles of servant leadership directly to Bible scriptures opened my eyes to a whole new perspective. My hunger to understand the living example of Jesus is like nothing I’ve experienced before."
~ Michelle Gist
"Even though the Servant Leadership model is not new to me, participating in the Year 1 session was very beneficial. The principles that are taught not only make you a better employee, they are tenants that can be applied to all aspects of your life. My marriage and overall family life are better because of this curriculum."
~ Chris Ebne
"LRT helps you become the leader God has called you to be. You will not regret this class and you’ll even want more. You will hunger for this class."
~ Jena Hillenbrand
"Coach Approach LRT provided the teaching and application I needed to jump into coaching others. I have grown into a confident cheerleader and ambassador of Servant Leadership throughout our organization."
~ Ben Bomstad
"I work for Alexandria Industries whose values are based upon Servant Leadership. Looking to improve my skills in Servant Leadership and specifically in coaching others, I participated in Mark’s Leadership Roundtable 2016. Mark has a method of engaging his students and training others that is second to none. I was able to not only improve my own leadership skills, but also simultaneously coach another individual and help him become a better servant leader for his people. The skills and knowledge I took away from the 2016 LRT will be of benefit for my entire life, both personally and professionally."
~ Tom Welle
"The Servant Leadership Coach Approach has strengthened my leadership skills by enhancing my confidence in coaching, being able to see people in a positive way and becoming a better listener."
~ Roger Thomas
"I have found Leadership Roundtable to be very helpful in my leadership journey. The Advanced LRT encouraged us to take what we have learned over the past few years and share it with others, to pass along the insight we have gained and look for ways to serve others. LRT along with a number of other contributors feeding into my life simultaneously have caused me to step back and take more time to consider those coming after me. To really consider my legacy and what it is that I want to leave behind. One of the ways this has been lived out is in the decision to begin leading a study in our home on the book Stepping Up, by Dennis Rainey. I believe this is just one of the many results of taking the time to identify my personal purpose statement, (to be a true reflection of God’s love; to honor God and serve others with a genuine passion for life) defining my vision, and spelling out my key values. LRT has given me a greater focus and enabled me to be much more intentional in looking for opportunities to serve and support others."
~ Mark Larson
"LRT has changed my view on leadership. It has helped me establish a foundation of servant leadership for my business and given me a clear vision of what I want my business and my career to look like. The sessions are amazing every time and are thought provoking and directly impact how I relate to my employees and run my business."
~ Dr. Dan Einerson
"LRT, for the fourth year, has been instrumental in developing me as a person both in my home and at work."
~ Stu Wood
"LRT is not just something “leaders” within an organization can benefit from. Each and every one of us has the opportunity to influence others every day! The roundtable process gives you the time to grow as an individual and work towards bettering yourself through interactions with others and using the blessings of God."
~ Cindy Frederick
"The Advanced LRT helped me not only understand why I think a certain way based on my personality but helped me come to an understanding of how I can eliminate some of the negative tendencies of my personality and to utilize the positive aspects in a much more affective way."
~ Ken Snyder
"Even at my age so much to learn and apply in life both business and personal. I enjoyed every session, especially the Human Metrics Jung Typology test. LRT is having a big impact in our community."
~ Vern Anderson
"Effectively managing ourselves and our relationships is an impossible task without understanding how we and others are wired. As leaders, our level of awareness and what we do with it will either enable or constrain our effectiveness. The Advanced LRT utilized some really solid assessments and models to help attendees increase their awareness, and tools to enhance their influence. This year ranks as one of my favorites."
~ Jon Ballou
