People are smart. Every company has more than enough intelligence to run their business. So how do we make a real difference? If being smart is one side of the coin, participants in our session can expect to learn about the other side of that coin – being healthy. The leaders who attend SHRM events are the foremost experts in what it takes to be smart in delivering sustainable, positive, intentional HR solutions. But too many such leaders don’t believe that they have the time, bandwidth, or resources to also be healthy.
Imagine the conventional team delivering HR services, now imagine them delivering those same services with minimal politics and confusion, high productivity, low turnover, and overwhelming positive morale. We all know how easy it is to do things we love, and how great it feels to do so with a positive impact on other people. Think about all of the advantages of developing leaders to deliver your services with something approaching that same passion. It’s not a dream. It’s not hard. And it’s not expensive. It is about people. It is about leading people and taking care of people. Great organizations and great leaders all share at least one characteristic that is non-negotiable – their people are highly engaged. Organizational Health is both the art and science of giving people the best possible conditions in which to run your business effectively and sustainably.
In our 90-minute session, we’ll introduce Organizational Health as a North Star for developing healthy leaders and workforces. We’ll talk about finding balance between operational and aspirational leadership activities, and the impacts that those activities have not just on the internal and external stakeholder experience, but also on the overall effectiveness of service delivery to your customers.
