Leadership as Stewardship

Peter Block distinguishes Stewardship as a form of leadership. This perspective is also useful when you want to be a coach rather than the boss. 

Stewardship - The willingness to be accountable for the wellbeing of the larger organization by operating in service, rather than in control, of those around us. Stated simply, it is accountability without control or compliance. - Peter Block
