Competitive Advantage through Finding Each Other Blindly

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 5: "Trust in your own intuition, but also make sure you can intuitively connect with each other as team members: that's when team intuition happens, and it leads to optimally running processes and a competitive advantage."

The behavior of all team members must contribute to realizing the vision and mission of your company. The composition of the team plays an important role, as your team needs to be balanced. A team of motivated people who truly work as a unit can achieve top performances. The unique aspect of business is that 'matches and training' often go hand in hand. Every day counts for real. This makes the challenge of achieving team intuition greater, but the greater is also the relief when successes are achieved.

In your company's growth process, so much happens that team members hardly have time to think. Therefore, they must dare to trust their intuition and also be able to find each other intuitively. Internal credibility is of great importance for the trust foundation, both for entrepreneurs and individual team members. It's about blindly trusting your own performance and that of your team. If you can't do that, it leads to distractions and time loss.

Consider the example of passing the baton to the next runner in a relay race. It's not helpful if you have to think about how to do that while running. Remember that team intuition sets your company apart from the average. This is the case when you dare to trust your own intuition, and also intuitively connect with each other.

Gaining a competitive edge through innovation

It makes sense that a joint vision and approach strengthen the development of team intuition. The power of repetition is needed to fully sense what needs to be done, what is expected of you, and what you can expect from your teammates. Just like your own intuitive decisions, team intuition is achieved through practice, practice, and more practice. If you have to think anew with each other about how to act in certain situations, you unnecessarily lose time, and time is money. This is apart from the question of whether the right things are being done.

The firmness of mutual expectation patterns allows team members to find each other faster. This leaves them time to also do more challenging things and address problems at the source. Think of innovation in this regard, so that you can gain or maintain a lead over the competition. Without a shared vision, no time is saved. Without saving time, there is no shared vision.

Integrating new people into your team also becomes easier if there is a shared vision and approach. New team members quickly understand why something is done in a certain way. The automatisms have become part of the culture: in other words, how we do things together in our company.

Question: How much time does your team spend on innovation and improvements?

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.
