Building Thriving Organizations

Well-functioning organizations – organizations that thrive – from families to communities to businesses to countries generally share two common traits: vitality and learning.

Vitality is the sense of being alive, passionate, and excited. It is often seeded in a specific core purpose and is fuelled by authentic leadership.

Learning is about embracing growth that comes from gaining new knowledge and skills. Learning is seeded in connection and is fuelled by conscious investment.

For us, at Whirling Chief, building thriving organizations that create value and differentiation through their people orientation is the most unifying, satisfying and inspiring purpose.

When we are successful in achieving our mission through our transformation support, employees do not only become more satisfied and productive, they become more engaged in creating the future they imagine for themselves and their organizations.

In today’s video, our contributor, Simon Marshall co-Founder of WhyNot Partnering and I have a casual chat in our office around what constitutes a thriving organisation in forth:

  • Starting With WHY
  • Leading From Heart
  • Engaging Everyone
  • Developing Constantly

As Arianna Huffington of Thrive Global recently put it:

“We think mistakenly that success is the result of the amount of time we put in at work, instead of the quality we put in.”
