first_img Curate Diocese of Nebraska Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group [Episcopal News Service] The Anglican Church of Southern Africa made history Nov. 17 when it ordained the first female Anglican bishop on the continent.The Rev. Ellinah Ntombi Wamukoya, 61, became the bishop of Swaziland and the first female bishop in any of the 12 Anglican provinces in Africa during a ceremony at the Mavuso Trade Centre in Manzini, Swaziland. Wamukoya succeeds the Rt. Rev. Meshack Mabuza, who became bishop of Swaziland in 2002.“We feel all the more enriched by today because, by virtue of our baptism, we are called to join in anything and everything that God is doing in his world – and we have felt his leading and responded to his call,” Archbishop Thabo Makgoba of Southern Africa said in a blog post following the ordination. “May we all continue to follow Christ in calling all those who are at the margins of our church and society so they may find themselves at the center of God’s love and his welcoming embrace.”Makgoba also wished the Church of England “God speed” as members of its General Synod gather this week to vote on legislation that will enable women to become bishops.Makgoba relayed some of the words from the Very Rev. David Dinkebogile, dean of the Diocese of Christ the King, who delivered the sermon during Wamukoya’s ordination. Dinkebogile said that “Ellinah is a woman; we were gathered to consecrate and ordain a bishop in the Church of God: not a black woman, not an African, not a Swazi woman, but a priest of the church,” Makgoba noted, adding that she is “to be pastor to all, to men and women, to black and white, to Swazis and all others in her diocese.”Wamukoya’s ordination comes as the Anglican Church of Southern Africa — which also includes Angola, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Lesotho — commemorates 20 years since beginning to ordain women to the priesthood.Wamukoya was not initially an episcopal candidate, but the Elective Assembly invited fresh nominations after seven rounds of elections yielded no results. She subsequently received the required two-thirds majority each in the houses of laity and clergy.When elected, Wamukoya was chaplain at the University of Swaziland and St. Michael’s High School in Manzini. She also served as chief executive officer of the City Council in Manzini.Founded in 1968, the Diocese of Swaziland comprises three archdeaconries: Eastern Swaziland, Southern Swaziland and Western Swaziland.

This misunderstanding arose from the Archbishop’s reference to inviting fresh nominations after the first seven ballots proved inconclusive. The electoral assembly declined to bring forward any new names, and it was after this that she was elected. Revd Canon Dr Sarah Rowland Jones, Researcher to the Archbishop of Cape Town.

Irish government turns to charities for help

ICS indicated that more funding for the programme would be available if fundraising was successful.“The decision by the Board of the Irish Cancer Society to offer funding towards the cost of the initial rollout of a screening programme is a significant new step for the Society. We would rather not have to make this offer, but on this occasion we believe that we have no choice. We believe that unless there is a clear driving force, it is easier for the Government, especially in the current climate not to do anything.“We also hold the view that we have a duty of care to the people of Ireland to drive the rollout of this programme, which will be one of the most effective public health interventions in the history of the Irish healthcare system,” said Bill McCabe, Chairman Irish Cancer.www.cancer.iecenter_img  23 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Irish government’s decision to accept money from charity has led to criticism from a leading charity director. Tony Geoghegan, director of Merchants Quay Ireland, which works with drug addicts, said such support could not be sustained and was not the way to fund long term drug programmes.The Irish government’s severe budget crisis has led it to seek and accept funding from the Irish Cancer Society and Elton John Foundation.Mr Geoghegan was critical of the Government’s decision to seek money from Elton John’s charity to fund a national needle exchange service.

Leaders as stewards of human capital

Posted on by

first_img 21SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Stuart R. Levine Founded in 1996, Stuart Levine & Associates LLC is an international strategic planning and leadership development company with focus on adding member value by strengthening corporate culture.SL&A … Web: www.Stuartlevine.com Details In a healthy culture, leaders at all levels of the organization become stewards of human capital. Leadership becomes the single most important human-capital issue, as good leadership drives organizational health, which in turn drives profitability. It requires a commitment from the top, starting with the CEO, and must permeate every level of the organization.It is essential that leadership development programs be seamlessly integrated into an organization’s culture. Too often, however, this is not the case. They frequently are short-term, sporadically funded and viewed as non-critical expenditures. U.S. companies spend plenty on these programs (about $14 billion annually), however, what is often referred to as “leadership development” is simply the purchase of “one-off” solutions” that do not help in the creation of an organizational culture of continuous learning and leadership development.Adding to this challenge, succession planning and the building of leadership pipelines, key responsibilities of management and boards, is in short supply in most organizations, often to the point of negatively impacting strategy implementation. According to a recent Deloitte survey, only 32% of organizations have succession planning for top level employees, and an unacceptably low 18% consistently hold their leaders accountable for recognizing and developing successors. Just 6% of respondents feel they have “excellent” programs for Millennial leadership development (employees in their 20’s and 30’s), despite the fact that 53% of Millennials strive for leadership positions.In a healthy culture of organizational learning and leadership development, leaders at all levels must continuously focus on recruiting, identifying and developing future leaders. It is no longer just the responsibility of HR or senior management. It becomes ingrained in the fabric of the organization, and leaders are held accountable for this responsibility, and rewarded for its success. This involves the delegation and support of effective learning by serving as coaches and mentors to increase the leadership capacity of their team. In this “leader as teacher” model, they make sure their team members gain relevant experience by providing challenging stretch assignments designed to help them grow and gain the competencies necessary for success in their current and future roles within the organization. Through introspection and emotional intelligence, leaders examine their own behaviors and belief system to assure that their mindsets are not inhibiting the growth of their direct reports. For example, some managers may believe in “command and control leadership”, which results in counter-productive behaviors such as a reluctance to delegate, or an avoidance of providing challenging stretch assignments, resulting in a failure to develop leadership capacity within an organization.Millennials represent a particularly important group. They are the next generation of leaders, requiring the knowledge, tools and experiences to develop the competencies necessary for effective leadership. The most effective development methods combine structured classes (e.g., in-person, on-line and webinars) with real life projects and regular feedback. Adults typically retain only 10% of what they hear in a classroom, while learning through real-life work experience has about a 60% retention rate. Organizations maximize learning when structured classes that teach theory and best practices are applied to stretch assignments involving actual projects that must be delivered on time and on budget, while being coached and mentored by experienced leaders. It seems that 20% classroom learning combined with 80% real world experience tends to be the ideal blend. This mix of multiple method competency development results in engaged performance, lower turnover, improved effectiveness and increased job satisfaction.Measuring the effectiveness of leadership programs is analogous to accounting for any business investment. The organization must appreciate the value of investing in people, often referred to as their greatest asset, and arguably the largest differentiator between organizations. Data-driven assessments can help evaluate a program’s effectiveness by measuring leadership qualities and competencies before and after these ongoing programs.  Since leadership development is not a “one size fits all” and must be carefully integrated into the organizational culture, there must be a continuous evaluation of what works best and what changes are needed for continuous improvement. What is painfully clear is that an organizational focus on leadership is directly linked to long-term success, where the organizational culture drives higher productivity and the organization becomes more effective in achieving strategic objectives and delivering increasingly positive resultslast_img read more
