Most organizations are very good at being smart—they spend a lot of time on strategy, marketing, operations, technology, etc. However, that’s never enough. Organizations must also be good at being healthy—minimizing politics and confusion, while maximizing morale and productivity.
In this webinar, Dennis Lanham, Executive Director of the Silicon Valley Executive Center, will dive deeper into the complexity of smart vs healthy organizations and give participants a framework to think about this in their own context.
