Leaks are often invisible in organizations, thus unconsciously risky

Fix the roof while the sun is still shining. As I write this blog, it's 25 degrees Celsius and the sun is shining brightly! That's wonderful, of course, but unfortunately, tougher times are coming. Times when it's cold outside, windy, and rains too often. Leaks within organizations are often invisible, making them unconsciously risky.

If we now discover that we have a roof leak, or if we anticipate one in the near future, we will work hard to get it repaired in time. After all, no one wants it to start raining inside…

The metaphor 'fix the roof while the sun is shining' is undoubtedly known to all in the business world. And everyone probably understands what it means, or do they? Why then do organizations view 'leaks' differently? Or perhaps they are not even aware that there are leaks... In that case, you are running unconscious risks and are not in control, as we call it. And then you might face unpleasant surprises, such as cash flow and liquidity problems. Because if you don't know about the leaks, you don't know their potential impact either.

Always Ready for Economically Tougher Times

Within an organization, from the metaphorical perspective, we're not talking about the roof. No, actually, we are discussing the foundation under the business operations or under the performance to be delivered. So it's logical that this is less noticeable. But how do you recognize the foundation and see that it's not in good order? Research shows that many companies and institutions lack the knowledge and skills to identify shortcomings in their organization's foundation. And what is not visible, does not get attention.

Interestingly, the best entrepreneurs are able to recognize deficiencies in the foundation of their business. They also possess the necessary knowledge and skills to manage everything perfectly. They continuously develop their organization to keep delivering top performances. The good news is that this is also achievable for your organization.

For businesses, this means that the foundation under their performance must always be in good shape, regardless of the economic climate. Therefore, it is more than worthwhile for your organization to take a critical look at this. Initially to prevent unpleasant surprises, but subsequently also to always deliver top performances, even in tougher times. Is your organization always ready for economically tougher times?

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! Are you curious? You too can experience the Route ICR web app for 14 days free of charge, without obligations!
