“The groundwork of all happiness, is good health” – Leigh Hunt

At the beginning of every year, people all over the world have thoughts and dreams of becoming healthier individuals. They put away all indulgences, make plans to adhere to strict exercise routines and eat well. Although some fall to the wayside, those who put their health first reap great dividends. Intrinsically, we know that our health is a crucial component to living longer lives, performing our best and reaching our goals. How then, do leaders neglect to make the evaluation of their company’s health central to their assessment of success?

On Oct. 9, Live2Lead: Gainesville, in partnership with the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, will delve into strategies to increase organizational health with Patrick Lencioni. Live2Lead: Gainesville will live simulcast Lencioni, the most sought after business speaker according to the Wall Street Journal, along with John C. Maxwell, Valorie Burton and Kevin Turner who will take to the stage in Duluth, GA. The event will begin promptly at 8:30 am at the Paramount Plaza located at 2900 SW 13th St.

Addressing the model in his latest book “The Advantage”, Patrick Lencioni makes an overwhelming case that organizational health “will surpass all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage.”

Lencioni is the CEO and founder of The Table Group, a consulting firm dedicated to helping organizations become healthier and more effective by providing a host of products and tools to leaders who want to improve teamwork, clarity and morale within their companies. He has written 10 best-selling books, selling over four million copies. Lencioni is probably best known for authoring “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team,” which speaks to his key areas of focus: leadership, employee engagement, teamwork and organizational health.

I believe that every person at some point has been affected by an unhealthy organization; but it is not enough to know that something exists. Live2Lead provides a solution-focused platform to give ownership to all who attend to go out and intentionally build healthier organizations” says Keira Simmonds, owner of LYFEhouse and host of Live2Lead: Gainesville.
