Servant Leadership:  Diversity, Values, & Cultural Differences

Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch


Manhattan, KS

Leadership is not about you. Leadership is about serving. This workshop addresses the philosophy of servant leadership and each individual’s answer to the call to duty and active rise to their full potential through serving. Learning to accommodate cultural differences is important for administrators in order to be successful in the school environment. Aspects of cultural differences, strengths and challenges will be examined and examples will be provided. Using her life story as a relatable and captivating example, she traces the lessons gained through her family’s experience in the barrios of Laredo, Texas that provided the foundations that led to her eventually receiving an award from the President at the White House. She gently guides the participants to a better understanding of cultural differences and similarities, as she emphasizes that appreciation of diverse cultures and their contributions to today’s society is a very important element of team-building and team-work, which makes for a successful, productive work environment. Consuelo challenges participants to likewise look inwards and face the inhibitions to their utmost potential and to consider what that entails. She stresses the importance of “preparing tomorrow’s leaders today!” She provides an understanding that “leadership” is not just a framed, wall decoration, but it is necessary action that one must make for the betterment of their community and the generation to follow.
