Introduction Organizations are a complex mix of various interactive elements that are both organic and inorganic in nature. Most leaders struggle to find an optimum balance between the two key facets due to the inevitable presence of various controllable/uncontrollable factors and are generally resigned to leaning more towards one than the other as they try to stamp their influence and build an enduring legacy within the organizations. Consequently, achieving excellence in todays hypercompetitive world has become a daunting task that has consistently sullied pristine reputations and shortened promising careers. Therefore, new approaches are needed to overcome the challenges of the 21st century and the following presentation provides a thought provoking perspective in the respective context 5. The Organic Side This refers to the collection of significant elements that infuse a vibrant spirit within an organization. It is how an organization assumes humanistic characteristics and becomes an embodiment of a soulful presence. Such aspects include: Ingrained core values Effervescent organizational culture Rousing vision and mission Propensity for introspection and change Discernible embrace of diversity and inclusion practices Unfettered dispensation of Organizational Justice* Competent, motivated &amp; engaged workforce Unflinching dedication to Triple Bottom Line (TBL)** *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organizational_justice **http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_bottom_line 6.
