Description - Building Healthy Organizations by The BHO Group

Recent research has documented how organizations that hold to a consistent set of values & hold their people accountable to them will consistently outperform those that do not. But there is little available analyzing what values are most effective and virtually nothing available that provides a roadmap for businesses and other organizations to guide their people through value formation and alignment for effectiveness. Building Healthy Organizations addresses this gap. The problem with value formation for organizations is that most people hold strongly differing opinions in their personal viewpoints on those values. Should we hire for aptitude or skill sets? How should managers handle team conflict? What is our approach to performance evaluation? Do we value people on performance alone? How do we decide who qualifies for employee assistance plans? These and many other questions will elicit very different responses from a staff team. How does the organization work through these differences? The BHO Group, after years of research, has developed a tool that provides a roadmap to analyze where an organization s staff team positions currently are on the 5 Key VALUE s of organizational health. The tool then leads staff lead towards a position of balance that synthesizes the team s divergent views. Written with business, government and educational organizations in mind, Building Healthy Organizations is unique in that it is not based on theoretical research, it is based on lessons learned in real companies one of which has been practicing the 5 VALUE s of organizational health for over 30 years. In this book you will learn: The 5 VALUE s that are crucial to Organizational Health How to analyze where you current staff teams personal value positions are. How to apply methods and tools to obtain organizational value system alignment. How to maintain a proper value system focus over the long term. In the recent environment where the drive for ever increasing profits, questionable ethics and the tendency to treat people as human doings instead of human beings has led to the destruction of several high profile companies - Building Healthy Organizations is a breath of fresh air. The book convinces that an environment where values are self-consciously developed and staff are held accountable to them is crucial to the bottom line of all organizations."
