The Untapped Advantage of Organizational Health

Thursday, June 28
8:30am-9:30am
Esplanade Ballroom

Open to all Registered Attendees & Exhibitors

Best-selling author Patrick Lencioni asserts that organizational health “will surpass all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage.” While too many leaders are still limiting their search for advantage to conventional (and largely exhausted) areas like marketing, strategy and technology, there is an untapped gold mine sitting right beneath them. Instead of trying to become smarter, Lencioni helps leaders and organizations shift their focus to becoming healthier—minimal politics and confusion, high degrees of morale and productivity, and low turnover among good people—allowing them to tap into the intelligence and expertise they already have.
