News and Notes

Yesterday I had a wonderful trip to Americus, Georgia. I presented the workshop, Qualities of a Servant Leader, to the Sumter County Elementary School leadership team. Mrs. Marcus, Principal, and her whole faculty and staff are some of the most wonderful people you would ever want to meet. As always, I had a blast!

I have been thinking a lot lately about servant leadership and customer service. To me, the two are joined at the hip. Servant leadership is the philosophy. Customer service is the tool or the extension of the philosophy, if done properly.

Next Wednesday I am going to post my coffee shop experience that I had this week. It will be my first true video blog in over a year.

I exercised almost every day this week. I felt myself getting a little heavy and out of sorts, and I had to get a hold of myself. Once you lose 100 pounds in 3 ½ years, it can get a little nerve wracking when you feel yourself creeping up the proverbial weight-gain ladder. By the way, I am so glad that Girl Scout cookie season is just about over. “I’m just sayin’…”

On April 10, I am presenting an Emergenetics workshop on behalf of our Business Resource Center, a division of the Pastoral Institute. The workshop is open to the public. If you live in the Columbus, Georgia area and have employees who have not yet participated in the class, please call Judy Talley at 706-649-6507 extension 1204 to register.

That is it for this week. I look forward to sharing the servant leadership philosophy with you again next week. However, don’t forget to read the Saturday and Sunday posts.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Kelvin,
    We enjoyed your visit to SCES. Your sessions always help us to focus on the most important things in life. You helped to remind us of the important roles we have as educators. This reminder gives meaning and satisfaction to our lives and the work we do each day.

  2. Mrs. Marcus, I had a blast. I so enjoy working with your leadership team. They have a great role model in you. Keep up the great work!
