Culture is a field of many interacting forces, as a stream of human activities involving ideas, behaviors, norms, and manifestations of many kinds in which everyone is enmeshed day by day. Cultures involve norms and values, and they usually have quite long durations in time. Sudden change is possible but rare. An organization indeed can embrace joy and health, while overcoming the potentially conflicting experiences of work and joy as a corporate culture. Work need not be a burden, and the attainment of positive pleasure and a sense of daily vitality constitute reachable goals. Building a joyful organization, as worldwide experience shows, is a counterintuitive exercise. But having the experience of joy in the organizational context, organizational health is related to success, as well as being a strong foundation of organizational development. This concept considers a balance among objectives and examines the numerous ‘‘diseases’’ of organizations. There are some criteria for organizational health and the diseases that arise when some functionality is consistently missing. These include customer exploitation, aggressive approaches to the environment, alienation, shortsightedness, and workaholism. Symptoms include self-centered leadership, isolation, and insensitivity—all of which frustrate organizational health. it builds on a sound theoretic base for understanding human behavior.The executives play a distinguished role in creating a healthy and joyful organization. The following is a research on the organizational health in an institution , associated with organizational development efforts to meet the era of globalization in general and especially AEC. This is a survey research using observation and interviews as the method, and analyzed by quantitative and qualitative method. Guidelines interview derived from the criteria of diseases in organization. There were 8 participants from 4 sub division. The results showed the tendency of several diseases such as bureaucracy, suboptimizing , risk avoidance , stagnation , and joylessness . It is concluded that the organization is relatively quite healthy , but there are still some potential diseases that needs to be prevented from spreading. It is suggested that the organization should review the organizational structure , increasing the development and coaching of employees , and giving the product knowledge to the employees. Further research needs to be done for the review of item checklist , use of research methods that are more varied , and the increasing number of participants.
