We live in a world of uncertainty and exponential changes: technological, economical, environmental, political and social.
Adapting to these circumstances is a prerequisite to survive and flourish. Quick fixes and incremental solutions are not enough anymore.
We need natural leaders who are able to adopt and to drive change to build healthy organizations that warrant outstanding performance, long-term success, and which are a force for good.
Natural leaders create change from the inside out, know how to master themselves and are vital. They lead with purpose and a clear direction. They lead by example and are a source of inspiration. They foster a culture of trust and openness and engage and empower others. They collaborate powerfully and reach desired outcomes. These leaders add value to people’s lives and to their organizations, and they are sensitive to the impact the organization has on its environment. Natural leaders build healthy organizations and therefore improve performance and sustain the success of their organization.
Healthy organizations have the qualities today that create the conditions for high performance tomorrow to sustain performance and add value. Healthy organizations typically have a culture that fosters trust, openness and engagement and enables continuous learning and improvement. Everyone is drawn into the same direction where it matters. There is a ‘can do’ culture. A healthy organization can adapt easily to external challenges and changes. Organizational health surpasses all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage.
When organizations would be held accountable for their state of health rather than just for their performance, this would have a positive impact on society as a whole.
