Integrating People's Actualizing Attributes and Excellence in Organizational Systems

Key Success Factor for Organizational Change, Leadership and Performance

It would take high-performing people working in high-performance organizations to sustain transformational change and desired organizational leadership and culture.

Internal organizational development specialists—who are passionate about achieving sustainable desired results—should understand and appreciate the use of this key success factor based on the total organizational poise concept. The total organizational poise concept—which underpins the high-performing organizational development framework, model and process technology—is that: Critical to attaining and sustaining high-performance organizations, cultures, teams and change, all actualizing attributes of people and aspects of key organizational systems, processes, and technologies that have functional interdependencies should be in top condition, and they should operate and interact optimally and harmoniously.

Working with Enabling Factors and Process Technology

Using Structured Organization Workshops

The high-performance organizational development framework, the total organizational development framework, incorporates the total organizational poise concept and a high-performance organizational development process technology—both of which are important for facilitating structured high-performance organization workshops for organizational development and change.


Operationalizing the Total Poise Concept

Operationally, the total organization poise concept emphasizes optimizing people's actualizing attributes and fostering their commitment to transformational change in a high-performing organization. Facilitating total organizational poise in the process of organizational change and development for sustainable desired results involves keeping all organizational systems and key aspects of people such as attitudes, attributes, competencies, and behaviors in top condition—so that they could harmoniously function interdependently and with effective organizational synergy. This translates to fostering people's actualizing attributes—in synergy with excellent organizational attributes—to sustain the desired vision of organizational change, leadership and performance.

This is the focus of themed organizational change and performance workshops, which we called OD Synergy Workshops™ or OD Synergy Workouts™—which should be done simultaneously with each project or program of organizational development, change, leadership and culture.

These organization workshops and workouts offer the opportunity for internal organizational development specialists and practitioners, and key stakeholders—working in collaboration—to simultaneously facilitate excellence in the organization's people and in organizational systems for desired results.


Adopting High-Performance Organizational Development Process Technology

The organizational development process technology—TOP-TECH™—for creating and sustaining organizational change, leadership and culture, is a real-time, business-focused and instrumental interactive process technology that could be used for planning and implementing special and targeted organizational development workshops and workouts—for example, in respects of organizational design, organizational change management, culture building, team building, employee management systems asssessment, and performance management systems review.

Developing a unified vision of organizational change, leadership, and performance

Recommended Approach for Organization Workshops

Structured organization workshops and workouts, or OD Synergy Workshops™, would position the key people of your organization to attain your vision of organizational change, leadership, and performance through being the best—while operating excellent organizational systems that support being the best in the overall strategic and competitive interest of your business.


Our recommended approach to organizing structured organization workshops and workouts, incorporates having group facilitation sessions, called 'poise sessions', during each OD Synergy Workshop™.

The 'Poise Sessions' which are interactive and reflexive are
designed exclusively to foster meaningful interaction, and reflexive engagement and evaluation among the organization's people and focus them
on developing a unified vision of the organization's future,—e.g., regarding organizational change, leadership, and performance, and particularly the organizational development initiative being undertaken—and commit to it.

Integrating excellence in organizational systems for desired organizational change

Recommended Approach for Organization Workshops—2

During a group facilitation session in any workshop, issues such as the following should be explored and worked through:
1. Is the organization currently prepared—by key interrelated systems and actualizing attributes—to meet today’s business demands and future business challenges? What is being done to secure the future of the organization in business? What part would be played by the organizational development initiative being undertaken?
2. Are the organizational systems or attributes and people correctly positioned along the same strategic and competitive objectives—and the desired vision of organizational change, leadership, and performance?
3. What organizational attributes and factors are critical to achieving desired vision of organizational change, leadership, and performance given the organization's competitive environment? How are they being fostered in the organization and by the organizational culture?
4. Given, or in the context of, the organizational development initiative being undertaken—which should be the theme of the OD Synergy Workshop™—what personal excellence attributes and attributes of excellence in organizational systems should be integrated and fostered towards sustaining desired vision of organizational change, leadership, and performance?

Sustaining organizational commitment to desired change and high-performance

Recommended Approach for Organization Workshops—3

There could be the development and use of a ‘commitment-to-excellence’ or 'high-performance' contract—which each participant develops and endeavors to achieve using key performance management principles—over a specified period of time, say within a 3-year cycle.


Commitment to change travels a two-way street—from your people to the organization, and from the organization, i.e. as represented in the leaderhip team, to those below. Read more about the 'Commitment Factor'. Download
