Smart v. Healthy

As I read management and leadership consultant Patrick Lencioni's latest book
The Advantage, I find it so eloquent when he states that teams/organizations need two requirements for success—"smart" and "healthy."

"Smart" includes
  • strategy
  • marketing
  • finance
  • technology
"Healthy" includes
  • minimal politics
  • minimal confusion
  • high morale
  • high productivity
  • low turnover
He goes on to say "if someone were to press me on which of the two characteristics of an organization, intelligence or health, should receive first priority, I would say without hesitation that health comes out a clear number one."

I definitely agree with you on "healthy." in fact with health you can come up with everything under "smart."
Good resource, too. Thank you.
