As Lencioni points out, creating a healthy environment, enables your organization to tap into and harness the incredible intelligence available to you.

In our experience, that’s because a healthy organization has a culture that addresses the four key barriers to exceptional performance which exist in any organization. These 4 barriers to performance are:

  1. Attitude
  2. Work Environment
  3. Process
  4. Systems

A healthy organization is one in which there is an appropriate balance of autonomy and knowledge throughout your organization which both enables and permits your people to address the performance barriers that are present.

What are the traits you look for and that tell you whether or not you have a of a healthy organization?

“The health of an organization is the multiplier of its intelligence.”

– Patrick Lencioni
