This webinar has been cancelled.

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

You may have heard the saying, "If serving is below you, leadership is beyond you." But you may be less familiar with the concept and behaviors of servant leadership. Vicki Clark will be on hand to discuss both and explain how self-care must also be a priority for servant leaders. She emphasizes that "You can’t pour from an empty cup"; it's important to take care of yourself so that you're able to avoid burnout and lead and support others in these times of constant change.



Martha Wigton, director, Georgia House Budget and Research Office and 2020-2021 NCSL Staff Chair
