City University of Hong Kong (CityU) Student Development Services (SDS) initiated the Servant Leadership Training Programme (SLTP) with the objective of developing a positive attitude and a service-driven mindset in students. Participants received training in the core principles of servant leadership according Robert Greenleaf that puts ‘others-first’ on everyday practice.
SLTP provides a platform for students to develop planning, organizational and leadership skills in the service of others and to learn to work with teammates from various academic disciplines and collaborate with people from all walks of lives.
The programme primarily aim is to enable students to redefine their roles in a positive way, analyse issues from a wider perspective and reflect on their life purposes through service learning experiences. As a result, the programme can install the good work attitude, communication and a service-driven mindset into our students.
In the year of 2018-19, over 200 students were recruited and different service teams were formed to deliver different services. This year (2019-20), we are going to recruit Servant Leaders for Food Friendster and Wellness Transformer.
