OVM Sponsors Second Servant-Leadership Workshop
What does it mean to be a servant-leader? On Wednesday, October 5, 2011, Mr. Tim Tassopoulos, Senior Vice President of Operations for Chick-fil-A and member of the Hellenic College/Holy Cross Board of Trustees, led a servant-leadership workshop for a group of HC/HC student leaders. Mr. Tassopoulos provided his perspective that leadership is a choice, not a characteristic or personality trait, thus highlighting that everyone can get better at leadership. This event built on a spring workshop led by Tassopoulos on the importance of every leader first becoming a servant. At each event, he shared seasoned, practical advice that students could start implementing in their present responsibilities. Indeed, students expressed the desire to participate in future leadership seminars sponsored by the Office of Vocation & Ministry (OVM). This event is one of multiple leadership development opportunities for students sponsored by the OVM.
