Organizations as “Living Organisms”
Threefolding: the signs of an organization’s “state of health”
In our view, this makes organizations living social organisms and, as such, the very representation of threefolding, which is made up of three spheres:
- The economic sphere regards the purposes and duties for which the organization exists, such as meeting a demand and offering services that satisfy customers and generate financial returns for the company
- The social sphere regards the relationships between the individuals who make up the company’s social system. This manifests in its communicative style, its cooperative spirit, its teamwork and its togetherness
- The individual sphere
The Wellbeing of an Organization arises from harmony and balance between these three spheres.
