(Re)Launching a Great Stewardship Team & Job Description for Stewards

The Stewardship Team (Re)Launch tool is intended to support the effective launch of a leadership team. It also can be adapted to re-launch a team that is not working effectively. Its principles can be applied to a coalition launch and ongoing team meeting agendas.

Included in this tool is a job description (modifiable by users and based on our work in many regions) outlining the skills needed to be an effective steward. It specifies the kinds of collaborative capacities and attitudes needed, as well as the typical time and task expectations of those serving the role. It can be used in recruiting stewards to the effort, and rethinking the composition of an existing leadership group.
