Building a Healthy Organization
Lencioni, Patrick
School Administrator, v70 n2 p39-43 Feb 2013
For the last 15 years, the author's firm has been helping organizations become healthier and maximize their human potential by using the model outlined in his latest book, "The Advantage," which is the culmination of his previous books and models. Schools and school districts have embraced the model and enjoyed the competitive advantage organizational health brings. In short, healthy organizations are free from politics and confusion and foster an environment where productivity and morale soar. With the many changes and challenges facing the public education system today, never has there been a better time for school leaders to roll up their sleeves and begin building a healthy organization. To start such an undertaking, one should understand four key steps: (1) Build a cohesive leadership team; (2) Create clarity; (3) Overcommunicate clarity; and (4) Reinforce clarity.
