* ORGANIZATIONAL HEALTH CHECK-UP, Tues Mar 7, 9am-
4pm, Toronto. Today's human service organizations are experiencing
unprecedented pressures as they navigate the uncertain waters of
large scale change. Along the way, many organizations have become
less healthy places to work - more stressful, less supportive, less
secure. One result has been an increasing level of burnout and
dropout among human services workers. Another has been an
increasing sense of powerlessness and cynicism. But, does it have to
be this way? Intended audience: people in a position to influence
organizational change in a health or social service organization.
