Peter Block Stewardship. Choosing Service Over Self-Interest peter block stewardship choosing service over self interest
Stewardship was provocative, even revolutionary, when it was first published in 1993, and it remains every bit as relevant and radical today. Most organizations still rely on patriarchy and hierarchy as their core form of governance, stifling initiative and spirit and alienating people from the work they do. Peter Block asserts that a fundamental shift in how we distribute power, privilege, and the control of money can transform every part of an organization for the better, and he examines the nitty-gritty of implementing these reforms. This revised and expanded edition includes a new introduction by Block addressing what has and hasn’t changed since the first edition and a new chapter on applying stewardship to the common good of the wider community. This visionary yet pragmatic book is sure to open your mind and change the way you do your job forever.

Stewardship in Leadership peter block stewardship choosing service over self interest
Every human being is basically, consistently and irretrievably self-centered. This is a universal truth. God knows this and that is the reason every command of God is predicated upon the assumption of self-interest. For example we are told “Give”. Why? That “it will be given unto you”. Self-interest. Again “judge not”. Why? “Lest you be judged”. Self-interest. The Bible establishes the fact that God is the Owner; man is the steward, not even a partner. “All things were made through Him, and without Him was nothing made that was made” (John 1:3). God not only owns the natural world, He also owns all living creatures according to their kinds. We must therefore exercise faithful stewardship in order to benefit from God’s gift in every area of divine provision including natural, spiritual physical, environmental, business. Personal stewardship is the best means of expressing gratitude to God for his love to us in Christ.

Charles D. Ellis Stewardship. Lessons Learned from the Lost Culture of Wall Street peter block stewardship choosing service over self interest
A compelling argument for why stewardship of wealth and service to others should be our highest financial priority Stewardship is the journey of financial insider John Taft towards understanding and affirming the importance of stewardship—which he has come to define as «serving others»—as a core principle for the financial services industry, the global financial system, and society at large. By defining the attributes of authentic stewardship, this book presents a path forward by analyzing the success of Canadian banks in weathering the financial crisis; evaluates the effectiveness of global financial reform efforts in making the financial system safer, sounder, and more secure; offers wealth management prescriptions for individual investors; evaluates the potential of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investment processes as a way to instill stewardship behaviors among corporate CEOs (particularly at financial services firms); and, ultimately, calls for a return to stewardship's core principles as the key to not only minimizing the scope and consequences of future failures, but also to addressing other societal challenges. Argues for a return towards stewardship, with financial services companies doing right by their customers Analyzes the response of Canadian banks to the financial crisis to provide meaningful advice for investors and businesses alike Inspired by Taft's experience running one of the largest wealth management firms in the country during the financial crisis and his direct participation in subsequent legislative and regulatory efforts to rewrite the rules under which the U.S. securities industry operates From the man who made the decision to reimburse clients affected by the collapse of a money market mutual fund comes a compelling look at why financial service companies should start doing what's right for their customers.
