Creating Healthy Organizations: Insights from the Front-lines

Presentation at the Second International Workshop on Work and Intervention Practices. Laval University, August 27th-29th, Quebec City.
In this presentation, I will examine strategies and tactics for implementing changes that build healthy organizations. I draw on my consulting experiences with many organizations that are trying to create healthier work environments. Improvements in working conditions, worker well-being, and productivity are possible if the process of change itself is healthy. Strategies that are organic, incremental and contextualized have a reasonable chance of success. However, change agents at all levels of an organization face significant barriers and must have resilience, determination and patience.
