I attended and participated in the very first Organizational Health (OH) Summit hosted by The Table Group and Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business. Heading the OH Revolution is Patrick Lencioni, a New York Times best-selling author and according to the Wall Street Journal, “one of the most in-demand speakers in America.” Patrick is “a generational thought leader on topics ranging from organizational health, teamwork, and leadership.”
In short, the OH Revolution is about Organizational Health becoming the number one competitive advantage in business, far above strategy, and finances. It is the hope that more businesses will prioritize this as a core component of the company’s strategy and operations. If you are interested in content notes see my Notes & Review on The Advantage (as well as other “Lencioni” posts on my blog).
Below are a few quotes from the event that I thought were worth noting. If you are interested in my services as a consultant, please visit ViaLead.Center.
People need to be reminded more than instructed – Samuel Johnson
Good people just don’t want to leave healthy organizations.
Implementation of these Organizational Health concepts needs to be just enough to institutionalize it without bureaucratizing it.
When we avoid conflict around issues, it ferments into issues around people.
It’s always uncomfortable. It’s never going away.
What is most important is the willingness to try.
