Summary
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.?An original and profound new view on how to run organizations?Block transcends all extant leadership literature.??Library Journal?Stewardship is one of those books that permanently changes how you think. It obliterates the wall between good business and ethical business?Get better business results, change the world, and save your soul with a single book.??Gifford Pinchot III, cofounder and President, Bainbridge Graduate Institute?The most insightful analyst of what ails organizations has written a very timely update of his book Stewardship. With America?s newest civic generation, millennials, now flooding the world of work, Block offers a system of governance that captures that generation?s need for?service over self-interest.???Morley Winograd, coauthor, with Mike Hais, of Millennial Momentum?The new edition of Stewardship is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in building sustainable businesses, organizations, and communities. [Block?s] ideas create more engaged organizations, which are better for people, the environment, and business.??Brian Camastral, CEO, Riversong Sanctuary; cofounder, BLITS Foundation; and former Global President, Mars Food
