Check-ups are essential to maintain health
Surely you take your car for a check-up and have it serviced. You probably have regular, if not annual check-ups at the doctor to ensure that you do not have any health issues. You have an annual financial audit to make sure your business is healthy and sustainable, yet your most important asset, your Human Capital is rarely, if ever, audited.
- Car Service: To take care of your car, you have it serviced every few thousand kilometers.
- Health check-up: To prevent health problems sneaking up on you, you have a check-up at the doctor every so often.
- Financial Audit: To make sure your business is in good health financially you have an annual external financial audit.
- Staff Audit: When last did you have a staff audit to find out how healthy the morale of your company is and what the disposition of your workers are?
… A milligram (an ounce) of prevention is better than a kilogram (two pounds) of cure …

Dinosaurs of tomorrow?
As a collective we as human beings are growing up. Psychologically, it is becoming more and more important for us to have a say in what happens to us; to have greater autonomy and self determination…..
Organizations that do not respect and encourage this will be the dinosaurs of tomorrow.
If it’s not broke why fix it?
If you have been doing business in a specific way for many years, it is time for a re-assessment of what works and what not. If you say “that’s the way it’s done here” you are very likely in for a nasty surprise.
If you keep on doing what you’ve been doing, you could land up out of business.
These days things are changing every 6 months, not only technology (that’s every 3 months.. and speeding up each year…), but also the way people are doing business. You need a different (new & upgraded) mindset for the current economic environment.
You can no longer change when the market changes. You need to learn to anticipate change or you are very likely to land up on the sidelines.
The writing is on the wall. Prevention is way better than cure.
