10 Leadership through Good Stewardship Taras Pidzamecky, UNF Immediate Past National President

11 What is Stewardship? Answers vary depending on whom you ask Sometimes used in the context of a religious or environmental organization Academic literature shows a small industry built around making it mean one thing or another – example: as a synonym for decentralized decision-making in international development

12 Stewardship is the ethic or an entity that embodies the responsible planning and management of resources. Stewardship is now generally recognized as the acceptance or assignment of responsibility to shepherd and safeguard the valuables of others. Excerpts from Wikipedia

13 Parable of the Talents Stewardship in the Religious Context ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents. Behold, I have gained another five talents besides them.’ "His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ Matthew 14-30

14 Parable of the Talents Stewardship in the Religious Context He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man...., so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant!....cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

15 What is Stewardship “Man has responsibility, not power.” Tuscarora Proverb

16 What is Stewardship? “I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity an obligation; every possession a duty.” John D. Rockefeller, Jr. ( ); Oil Magnate, Philanthropist

17 Organizational Leadership through Stewardship An awareness that You don’t own organization You have been entrusted to care for & sustain – It’s ideals or values – Members (human reasources) – It’s assets You are accountable – –a–a

18 A Stewardship-Focused Leader You share decision making and are responsible that there is a good decision-making process in place If you have the best idea/position, you must be focused on how to motivate and bring people on side You thinking about the good of the organization as a whole - not about one’s self interest or that of a particular group or clique Awareness that you are not the owner

19 A Stewardship-Focused Leader Awareness that you are entrusted with Ideals and values Have to make an effort to under- stand what they are, how they evolved, and how to adapt them – obligation to know what was passed on to you Not just a matter of starting off with your uninformed self Nor abandoning values based on consumeristic approach of satisfy- ing member wants – principled organizations are not auto clubs

20 A Stewardship-Focused Leader Awareness that you are entrusted with Members (human resources) You have an obligation to lead and motivate them Ensure that you are developing your members to take on new roles and responsibilities, interact constructively, provide succession Today’s program therefore includes volunteer development an managing organizational culture

21 A Stewardship-Focused Leader Awareness that you are entrusted with Assets Knowing what they are Ensuring – they are safeguarded – used for good of the organization – not wasted or misdirected for personal benefit of any individual Doesn’t just happen by assuming good will of members Today’s sessions on managing conflicts of interest and audit
