Becoming More In Tune with Each Other in a Learning Organization

This blog is part of the 9 growth principles of Route ICR

Each week in our blog, we focus on the 9 tips that strengthen teamintuition in your business.

Today's tip 7: “Mutual certainties & automatism enhance team intuition: ensure a learning organization and continue to grow as an entrepreneur and a business.”

You must constantly improve the quality of processes and the products or services delivered. If not, you can forget about competing. The best people need little direction but are at the same time very scarce. Therefore, guiding behavior is of utmost importance. And that starts with leading by example. Additionally, we organize and structure because in our journey to success, we want to be as little reliant on chance as possible. We create a learning organization, forming the basis for automatism and mutual certainties.

The combination of leading by example and the way of organizing and structuring significantly determines your company’s culture. Leading by example is particularly important, especially in smaller companies. With structure, you can direct your and your employees' behavior in the desired direction. Structure helps you to make decisions based on solid insights. You become aware of the factors influencing your final decision. If you have a structure in which you also measure actual performances, you can decide whether to adjust or not based on that. Moreover, you can learn from it and improve processes.

Encourage the continuous process of a learning organization

Mutual certainties and automatism help to strengthen team intuition. It provides the foundation for top performance, but the ongoing learning process places high demands on the whole team. Everyone must be willing to give it their all. By ensuring your organizational structure is on paper and thus visible, it can also be shared with your team members. What is visible gets attention. What gets attention grows. Only then can you work on the power of repetition.

And a good vision must grow. Moreover, you must continuously sharpen and/or improve it, as our world is changing rapidly. The way of thinking of all team members should happen as much as possible from the same vision. If not, you do not engrave automatism in execution and will never deliver top performances. The clarity that comes with this brings peace and contributes to a good work atmosphere.

A shared vision and insight help anticipate what your team members plan to do. Due to the solidity of mutual expectations, team members can find each other faster. The better you can estimate what is coming your way, the better you are able to take the right measures in time. Avoid running faster when things seem to go wrong. That discourages the continuous process of a learning organization. The message is to work smarter, not harder!

Question: Is your business also a learning organization?

Over de schrijver
Entrepreneurs take risks and are incredibly important for our economy. Unfortunately, a good balance between work and private life is often lacking. It is precisely this that drives Paul Joore to have a positive impact on the lives of entrepreneurs and contribute to their success. Paul is the ambitious founder of the online Route ICR platform for successful entrepreneurship. He is also the author of the entrepreneurship book ‘Succesvol groeien doe je zo!’ (Successful Growth, How to Do It!). "I believe in setting seemingly unattainable goals. Challenging oneself, innovating, and constantly improving. Supported by a well-structured organization." Paul has tens of thousands of flight hours in the business world, with a background as an entrepreneur, coach, interim manager, and former chartered accountant. Always focusing on realizing challenging goals as effectively and efficiently as possible: in other words, being successful through being inControl, in the entire process from true ambition to result. This only works by thinking, planning, and acting from a goal-oriented structure. In the SME sector, there was a lack of knowledge and experience in this area, and well-thought-out solutions were not available. Therefore, Paul decided to create this himself. In many SME businesses, the 'madness of the day' reigns. As a result, entrepreneurs are not inControl when it comes to achieving goals, let alone challenging ones. Therefore, they also do not realize their true ambition. Worse, for many, this ambition is not even crystal clear. And how can you work towards a goal without having a real one? Logically, there can also be no balance between work and private life. And no balance means no rest. So, the Route ICR web app helps entrepreneurs and teams to be inControl in the entire process from ambition to result. With the ICR "InControlRating" of your business as a growth compass. Very clear and handy to know through one number how your business is and will be doing. So you know whether you will achieve your goals and be successful from this starting point. And if the score is disappointing, you also know what to work on to improve. This way, you gradually work towards a better balance in your life, feel good about yourself, and have a positive mindset!
