What is Organizational Health?
Organizational Health (OH), like personal health, may vary from a minimal to a maximum level. For Cabell County Schools, it is our ability to function effectively, to cope adequately, to change appropriately, and to grow from within. OH includes and is dependent on the following ten dimensions that are measured annually:
The ability to have clarity, acceptance, and support for goals and objectives.
Open, two-way communication which travels both vertically and horizontally throughout the district.
Ability to maintain a relatively eqitable distribution of influence between staff/team member and their leader.
Degree to which leader knows and is able to coordinate the talents of staff/team members.
Clear sense of identity and staff/team member wants to stay, be influenced by staff/team, and exert their own influence with staff/team member (working together).
Feeling of well-being, satisfaction, and pleasure in job.
Ability to be and allow others to be inventive, diverse, creative, and risk-taking
Freedom and responsibility to manage those things within their sphere of influence.
