Dear friends and colleagues,
As part of my commitment to grow in service to you, I am proud and excited to share that I recently joined longstanding companions at Newton Consulting and that Serving Ventures has become the heart of Newton Institute’s Center for Serving Leadership. Allow me to share a few of the specifics, and then say a word about what this means for us all.
On January 6, 2015, I was named President of the Newton Institute (a subsidiary of Newton Consulting) and Director of the Center for Serving Leadership. Newton Consulting is a global consulting company that has systematically embedded The Serving Leader into its core operating principles, sharing our focus on values and on serving people and customers. I have felt deeply aligned with the company and with its founder Rick Newton, and recognized that together, we could do greater things. In this new role, I will continue to give leadership to our vision to spread the message and practice of Serving Leadership worldwide. The key impact of this change is the immense strength and deep values alignment we gain through the extraordinary team we have joined.
Our primary work – leading Serving Leader Cohorts in cities around the world, embedding Serving Leader Practices inside great companies, hosting the Annual Serving Leader Conference in Pittsburgh, Pa., and certifying Serving Leader Trainers – will be carried forward by the Center for Serving Leadership without interruption. In addition to these historical practices, the Center for Serving Leadership is now prepared to reach more cities with Serving Leader resources and to invest ourselves in more partners who share our passion for building a world-wide community of Serving Leader practitioners.
I look forward to hearing from you and to continuing our work together. Thank you so very much for the privilege of being your colleague!
