Mergon Foundation’s Ian Conolly addresses maintaining a healthy organisational culture while strategically growing non-profit organisations. He identifies three key practices for achieving this: People, Thinking and Governance Practices. When these align, organisations can thrive with effective teams, clear strategies, and governance. In support of this, we introduce a new online learning and capacity-building platform called FiftyFour, to guide non-profit leaders in building thriving organisations. Launching in 2024.
Have you ever thought about the various dimensions of organisational health and whether you’re nurturing it effectively? Today we join Werner Momberg from the Mergon Foundation, who shares on the vital role that organisational health plays in having long-lasting success and sustainable impact.
Organisations are like jet engines, says Mergon Foundation’s Werner Momberg, with each part of the engine playing a crucial role in moving the machine forward. To build organisations that make a real difference in this world, leaders need to tune and develop each of these components so that their organisations can become effective ‘engines of impact’. In this article Werner shares key insights into how leaders can nurture organisational health and grow their impact.
Healthy organisations don’t ‘just happen’. To become a healthy organisation takes introspection, humility, honesty, and courage to confront hard questions, among many other things. The road to organisational health isn’t always easy, but it is worth the journey.
Through a process of identifying and defining the key dimensions of a healthy organisation, Mergon developed an Organisational Self-Perception Scan as a practical resource tool for NPO and ministry leaders.
While most organisational health tools measure on a ‘benchmarking’ or ‘performance-based’ assessment, in this article we’ll look at why we chose to measure perception specifically.
