Healthy Organization Assessment©

This short questionnaire will help you to assess where your organization is on a healthy trajectory. It is based on the healthy organization model presented in Graham Lowe's book, CREATING HEALTHY ORGANIZATIONS. The questions focus on the four building blocks of a healthy organization - vibrant workplaces, inspired employees, inclusive leadership, and positive culture - and the concept of sustainable success.  Use your answers to stimulate discussion with co-workers and to plan your next steps for moving further down a healthy organization path.  
Provide your email address at the end of the questionnaire to receive your responses.  A brief description of how to use the results for healthy organization change is provided after you submit your answers.
