Businesses and organizations with all of their pieces in place and operating in complete alignment are able to achieve integrity – Businesses and organizations with integrity are able to thrive! Thriving organizations tend to have higher success in meeting their mission, greater customer and employee satisfaction, and low rates of turnover. Conversely, organizations with missing or misaligned pieces tend to experience a great deal of inner conflict, high turnover rates, and eventually can even close down. Organizing with Integrity empowers organization leaders, team members, customers and other stakeholders with tools and information to build happy, healthy organizations where all people thrive!

You’re in the Right Place

Human beings can fully thrive when the businesses, organizations, agencies and governments they interact with are thriving, too. If you’re ready to start your own small business, program or nonprofit organization – or just want to learn organization best practices for your role as a volunteer, board member, donor, employee or CEO – you’ve come to the right place! Organizing With Integrity covers six (6) key topics designed to empower learners to build, create or rebuild healthy, thriving organizations, including:

Understanding Businesses & Organizations 101; 
Foundations of Institutions; 
Governance & Leadership; 
Operations & Administration; 
Programs, Products & Services; and 
Bringing the Organization to Life.

It’s generally recommended to view the topics in that order, though learners are free to explore and revisit topics at any time. Use the navigations on each page to move to the next topic or go to the main menu. 

Learning Tools & Certificate

Each topic includes a Build & Create Section with templates and tools for building or reviewing your own business or organization, including an Integrity Check and basic knowledge review. Many of these tools and templates are also available in the Tool Box. In addition, learners can test their skills and build their resumes by completing the Knowledge Check In and receiving their Certificate of Completion online. 

Please note: Documents in the Tool Box are intended to allow for your personal editing, and may not appear as intended when viewed on a phone or smaller devices. 


Organizing With Integrity is freely accessible to learners because we believe the more people who understand thriving businesses and organizations, the better our world will be. The course is absolutely free! To pay for our costs – such as technology and staff time – we do charge an administration fee for the Certificate of Completion. The Certificate Processing Fee is $50.00. For business, group and organization rates, please see our group rates here
