Stewardship: Choosing Service Over Self-Interest, 2nd Edition
In this newly revised version, Stewardship: Choosing Service Over Self-Interest, 2nd Edition, redefines what being “value added” means in an organization.
Spinning the traditional thinking about who works for whom, Block explains that organizations who practice stewardship will succeed in their marketplace by choosing service over self-interest. Without a far-reaching redistribution of power, privilege and wealth, organizations will see little real change.
Block calls for a rethinking of the way things are done in the workplace while taking the reader through very tangible steps to get there. He demonstrates how applying the concept of stewardship will radically change all areas of organizational governance, from individual management practices to financial and human resource systems. The results will be replacing self-interest, dependency, and control with service, responsibility, and partnership.
