The authors describe the importance of the health of an organization and what factors contribute to it or create "disease." They posit that leaders have a role in helping a company thrive and profit and examine the barriers to their personal beliefs to success. They challenge the concept that management is about identifying priorities and producing results quickly and propose that organizational health is about finding a balance among the needs of the customer, organization, and its members. Using examples, they illustrate the characteristics and development of a "joyful" organization, organizational health criteria (including belongingness, balance in professional and private life, satisfied customers, and minimizing entropy), symptoms of problems, and the role of the executive. Lövey is associated with a management consulting firm in Hungary. Nadkarni was associated with the Behavioral Science Center in Mumbai, India. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
