the-advantage-lencioniIs your organization smart or healthy?  It’s a trick question.

It needs to be both.

It’s easier to work on being smart.  It’s out in the open, it’s sexy, lots of attentions is paid to being smart.  Not so for healthy.

This Friday, I’m reviewing Pat Lencioni’s Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else. It explains the dynamics of organizational health.  As he explains it,  health enables you to take full advantage of smart.  But not vice-versa.

But don’t take my word for it.  Take Pat’s.  Here’s a short clip explaining it for you.

Don’t end your study of this there.  Come to the Book Review this Friday to get more detail on how make your organization healthy.

And for further study go to the Gazelles Growth Institute and take The Advantage Course, taught by Pat Lencioni.
