Want to Create Organizational Health and Effectiveness in Your Business?....

First explore key organizational poise factors or organizational health/effectiveness factors to define and shape your organizational effectiveness/health mandate!

If you would optimize your business for organizational effectiveness or facilitate total organizational health/poise for ultimate high performance, what first steps would you take?.....A critical first step is exploring, and planning on, key facets of total organizational poise and organizational health/effectiveness based on an understanding of organizational poise/health factors or organizational effectiveness factors.

Exploring Organizational Health/Poise Factors for Creating Organizational Effectiveness

Total organizational poise dictates the character of your organization to sustain corporate excellence. It is integrated with overall organizational health and effectiveness. Creating organizational effectiveness and health in the long-haul is predicated on exploring, understanding, and measuring factors of total organizational poise/health.

Facilitating total organizational poise/health development requires paying attention to and gaining insight on two operating terms: 'total' and 'poise'. 'Total' refers to all key aspects of the organization's human and integrating systems on the one hand and all key factors or elements of 'poise' on the other.

A begriming step to exploring and understanding the various features of poise is by considering synonyms and antonyms relating to 'poise'.

You can start the process in your organization by asking your people a simple question: 'What are the key attributes of a well-poised person?' You may then follow it up with another related question: 'What are the key attributes of a well-poised organization?'

Draw up a list of poise factors based on the responses you got on the two questions. You can also gain further insight by reflecting on what the lack of poise represents.

What you are embarking upon is a journey that may eventually transform your organization's people and integrating systems for sustainable high performance and long-term organizational effectiveness.

Steps in Creating Organizational Effectiveness and Total Organizational Poise/Health Development

Asking such questions as the two above in respect of your organization and its people would go a long way in creating organizational effectiveness and synergy. The answers and attributes developed could help direct actions and strategies to keep your organization optimized or healthy for long-term success. This is an important first step in the services we render in total organizational poise/health development, review or analysis.

The necessary key steps that follow are:

  • Agreeing the primary factors or indices in light of the strategic situation of your organization
  • Defining each factor or index
  • Agreeing the standards or yardsticks for the review or analysis, and
  • Gaining commitment on the outcome of the review or analysis

When the people or personal elements of total poise are addressed, your people will be positioned for organizational effectiveness and high performance. Your business will reap the effect of organizational poise/health.

Distilling Poise Factors for Total Organization Development

What list did you arrive at or draw up asking the twin questions: 'What are the key attributes of a well-poised person?' and 'What are the key attributes of a well-poised organization?' Asking the question, 'What, in real terms, would the absence of poise show?' would also produce additional insight for your list.
