    Creating health organizations relie on the ability to disagree in healthy ways. The desire to maintain the status quo is a powerful force however that tendency when a environment is toxic signals a decline and destruction of organizational effectiveness. I wonder where is the board that oversees this organization and how are they assisting in the changes they seek to implement. Only when the paycheck meets the opening up will change have the greatest chance of success.

    With that said, the ultimate challenge is what to do when the board is the source of the culture by their inactivity, poor oversight or active complacency. Remember that boards are many time recruited by leadership executives and in some cases will be part of the problem. These are the most difficult cases.
