Have you ever been in a meeting to discuss the same topic for the fourth time - the meeting ends, nothing has been accomplished and you're creating yet another meeting to discuss the same topic? Me too and it is painful.
There is a difference between healthy and unhealthy organizations.
6 SIGNS OF AN UNHEALTHY
Boring, unproductive meetings
Competition instead of collaboration
Disengaged and frustrated employees
Lack of commitment around decisions
Lack of accountability for goals or performance
6 SIGNS OF A HEALTHY ORGANIZATION
High moral and productivity
Clearly communicated priorities (to all levels of an organization)
Unparalleled focus and drive towards common goals
Attraction and retention of employees that reflect the company's mission, values and purpose
Healthy, productive conflict and engaging meetings
Healthy organizations eliminate politics and confusion in their environments. They focus on alignment, innovation, clarity, open communication, and the employee experience.
A beautiful analogy of organizational health is not only getting the right people on the bus but making sure they are in the right seats. By getting the right people on the bus, I mean - we start with the hiring process to ensure that we are only hiring people who are a good cultural fit that have the right attitude and drive to succeed in the organization.
Once they are on the bus, we want to understand where they are best suited to utilize their natural gifts and abilities, so they can contribute as much as they possibly can to the organization while being as fulfilled by their job as possible.
"The price of a bad hire is at least 30 % of the employee's first-year earnings. CFOs actually rank a bad hire's morale and productivity impacts ahead of monetary losses."
