Many workplaces are characterized by competing agendas and conflict (no alignment on direction), by politics and bureaucracy (low quality of execution), and by the corrosive idea that work is “just a job” (a low sense of renewal). These aren’t just unhealthy for companies that want to deliver sustainable bottom-line results—they are unhealthy for the human soul. […] Healthy organizations, by contrast, unleash our potential and uplift our spirit. They inspire (aligning on a big, important goal), create a sense of belonging (executing as one team), and foster creativity and innovation (through a sense of renewal).
