As in human life, it is possible to talk about various problems at many stages of working life. When we think that the most important problem in human life is health problems, it's not quite unusual to mention the same problem in the business life where human presence is at the forefront. In fact, when we consider that scientific studies in the field of management that started with the industrial revolution began to be appreciated in a behavioral dimension with the Hawthorne Survey (1927-1932) by Elton Mayo et al, we better understand that the most important element for organizations is "human". Thus, it will be more valuable to make analogies and comparisons in which the human element is taken into consideration when explaining all organizational activities and problems. Businesses that originate, evolve, grow and often disappear just like people (unless they are able to adapt to all the required environmental conditions and variables) act in many aspects within a life cycle that resembles people's organic process. When we consider all these together, it would not be wrong to consider a problem that will hinder or affect the functioning or continuity of organizations as an organizational health problem. It is valuable to explain organizational problems with behavioral approach, to understand them better and to find more permanent solutions. Identifying the existence of the problem, diagnosing it correctly and ensuring its survival (sustainability) by applying the necessary treatment is quite important for organizations, just like in humans.
