What is a worthy organization?

“…ethical values are a
foundation for achieving integrity, defined herein not only as incorruptibility but as
a total commitment to the highest standards of behavior” (Strickland & Vaughn, 2008, p. 233).

Strickland and Vaughn assert that integrity in an organization is built on foundational values, such as accountability.

In a series of essays, Robert J. Ballantyne explored how an organization achieves worthiness or fulfillment of potential as described by Strickland and Vaughn. To capture in one place the wisdom generated through working with and leading a number of nonprofit organizations, Robert and I collaborated on a book, The Worthy Organization. You can also see Robert and I in a series of videocasts on Blab discussing the contents and purpose of the book.
