Be Smart and Healthy

As a company, you can be smart and/or healthy.  Here’s a list of both by Patrick Lencioni.  Which are you?



Cutting-edge technology

Minimal politics

Clear strategy

Minimal confusion

Effective marketing

High morale

Strong financial controls

Low turnover

High personal productivity

In my work, I find that companies spend most of their time worrying about being smart.  But if I could choose for you, I would lean towards spending more time being healthy.

The reason is that healthy teams can much more easily figure out how to be smart, than smart teams can figure out how to be healthy.
