Abstract and Keywords

Positively deviant organizations are sustainable, achieving organizational peak performance today while creating the conditions to thrive tomorrow. We argue that organizational sustainability depends on attending to strategic paradox, simultaneously engaging contradictory yet interrelated strategies. Drawing on our research and the work of others, we explore the paradoxical nature of organizational sustainability and identify organization design and leadership characteristics of differentiating and integrating that can more effectively support seemingly contradictory strategies.

Keywords: Organizational sustainability, peak performance, strategic paradox, organizational design, senior teams
