Organizational Stewardship - 7 Keys to Success

When you hear the word “stewardship” what comes to mind? For many, whether in ministry or the secular marketplace, this word evokes the idea of using one’s talents wisely and effectively. For others, you may be thinking about money. Recently I began to look at this word in a different light and in relation to organizational leadership and development.

According to Merriam-Webster, stewardship is defined as “the activity or job of protecting and being responsible for something.” Every team member, regardless of title or position on the org chart, is called to be organizational steward. Rather than defining ourselves by a title, we should simply look at ourselves as stewards. At the end of the day, you have been strategically and purposefully placed in the organization in which you serve. For some, this season may short in duration, for others it may be longer in duration. Either way, as stewards we are called to manage what has been entrusted to us, and each of us needs to take this perspective when looking at your organization. There should never be a situation where a team member is simply working for the paycheck. Every team member should serve with a passion to protect and grow the organization as if they birthed it themselves. FULL POST

7 Tech Tasks Small Businesses Should Need to Outsource For Success

Outsourcing certain tasks is a great way for businesses to allow the time to take care of critical time consuming tasks, while still managing to increase productivity and decrease expenditures. Technology related tasks are generally the most lucrative to outsource in that passing off the responsibility to complete such tasks allows for the business owner to focus their time on more profitable areas of business. That means, instead of being stuck trying to figure out how to build a decent website, you could instead be focusing on sales team improvements, cultivating marketing strategies, refining customer service skills and so much more.

That being said, not every area of business is ideal to outsource to another party, for in doing so you could very well hinder your business’s productivity and therefore decrease profits. For your convenience, here are 7 technology related tasks that businesses should outsource in order to boost productivity, sales and promote success. FULL POST

HR Process Automation

We’ve discussed in previous posts how customers are using frevvo for HR process automation. It’s one of the most common areas for automating workflows with frevvo.

The fact is that everyday approval processes such as employee on-boarding, leave approval and time sheets take an exorbitant amount of time if done manually. Employees and managers are waiting longer than necessary and spending more time/money than necessary to tackle these routine tasks. There’s also a much higher rate of inaccuracy in the manual process.

How to Plan a Family Fun Day on a Pontoon Boat | There is nothing better than spending a day on your pontoon boat. With that, it can be very stressful if you don’t properly plan your excursion. Imagine a day on a pontoon boat where you visit the same area and do the same activities as the time before, more for lack of imagination than because of the fun quotient. Not to mention the chaos that can ensue if there isn’t enough food, water, or sunscreen for the party.

Aside from the dos and do nots for a pontoon boat day, there are numerous fun ideas you and your family should try:

• Explore: Instead of visiting the same place every time, mix it up and boldly go where you haven’t been before.
• BBQ: If your pontoon boat has a BBQ on it, why not enjoy a beach BBQ?
• Scavenger Hunt: Invent a scavenger hunt where you stop at various places and solve clues. Will there be buried treasure at the end?
• Mega Raft: If your friends all have pontoon boats and families, tie up all the boats together and make a mega raft.
• Waterproof Camera: There is no better way to capture the day and take some memorable underwater photos.
