Who We Are

The Serving Way is a non-profit leadership development and coaching practice dedicated to helping you create true value for all your stakeholders. We equip emerging and established leaders with powerful serving practices in every facet of leadership.


Flourishing is the reason all of us are in positions of leadership. We are called to nurture communities of work in which people grow stronger, more capable, and engaged as servant-leaders in their own right. As you practice servant leadership you will forge high-functioning teams in a strong, resilient organization that contributes to the common good.


Deep work is calling you. Who are you becoming at your core? How do you show up in ways that no one else can? What is the unique blessing in the world that you are called to create? 


It’s this inner development that holds your future of greater performance, competence, and capacity  as a servant-leader in these tumultuous times. All change begins with inside-out change. We need depth to lead ourselves and those who follow us through changes such as these. The Serving Way will help you grow and flourish in service to others, walking with you as fellow travelers on the journey.

Chris Thyberg, Founder and Principal

I have been traveling the path of servant leadership for over thirty years as a senior executive, team builder, facilitator, and coach. It’s been my privilege and call to provide strategic direction for major universities, faith-based nonprofits, and for-profit consulting firms as they navigate change and develop new initiatives. And I’ve seen first-hand the power of high-purpose cultures driven by vision, mission, and values to deliver exceptional results.


Along the way, I’ve learned that the serving journey is best traveled with others. We listen to your story and help you pursue what matters most. Tell us where you are and where you aspire to go as a servant-leader. Together we will help you reach your destination.
