BUILDING ORGANIZATIONAL HEALTH
Healthy organizations are effective, successful, and more human. Using a proven approach and practical tools, we can strengthen your teams and help you tap into your greatest competitive advantage.
Pat Lencioni has developed 4 actionable steps to building a healthy organization, and as a CAPAPro Consultant, Dr. Rosie is certified to offer consulting services based on his model.
DEFINITION OF A HEALTHY ORGANIZATION
A healthy company has minimal politics and confusion, high morale and productivity, and very low employee turnover. This definition was developed by Pat Lencioni, the creator of a pioneer of the organizational health movement and best-selling author of 11 books, including The Advantage and The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team.
If any of the following sound familiar, you might benefit from improving the health of your organization:
- people tend to work in silos
- people protect their turf rather than openly collaborate
- the leadership team isn't cohesive
- the purpose and vision aren't clear or people don't know how they fit into the bigger picture
- there is lack of clarity and alignment around strategy, goals and priorities
- tough conversations are avoided
- accountability is not embraced equally across the organization
- people are frustrated and complaining
- your best people are leaving
4 Steps to Organizational Health
As a member of the Table Group's Consultant and Practitioner Alliance, Dr. Rosie offers consulting services based on Lencioni’s model.
Build a cohesive leadership team.
All healthy organizations must have a strongly united team in charge, all individually committed to pursuing a common goal.
Healthy organizations have clarity among those leaders. The heads of a team, department, and/or organization must be both behaviorally and intellectually aligned.
On average, people have to hear something seven times before they believe it, but most leaders don’t like to over-communicate. Healthy organizations aren’t afraid to repeatedly reinforce ideas.
Leaders must embed clarity into the fabric of the organization, from everything from recruiting and hiring to performance and compensation.
We have created a visual representation to help you better understand how organizational health fits into our approach to re-humanizing the workplace. We call it the Thriving Workplace Pyramid.
Organizational health is the foundation to creating a thriving workplace culture.
It is also an organization’s single, greatest advantage because the average company is plagued by politics and confusion.
All teams are potentially dysfunctional. The good news is that the causes of team dysfunction are both identifiable and curable, with courage and discipline.
