Building Organizational Resiliency

Shawnee Love   •   July 9, 2020

It can be hard to recognize when you are over your head, lacking perspective, or even practicing unhealthy patterns of thinking or behaving.

To protect yourself from making bad decisions and/or behaving poorly, it is important to build resiliency personally and professionally.

For yourself personally, it is important to have good self care habits.  For more on these, check out our recent blog posts.

As it relates to building resiliency within your organization, we have a few ideas:

  • Creating documented processes, aka SOPs or Standard Operating Procedures and centralized information management, such that if a person in-the-know leaves, the knowledge remains.
  • Instituting policies, standards and controls around signing authority and decision-making authority.
  • Understanding critical “normal” numbers for revenues, expenses, staff hours, inventory, etc.
  • Building your business support network, i.e., your trusted advisors who understand your situation and have your best interests at heart.

We hope these tips will help you and your organization grow and build on your success thus far. Any questions on how, we are a call or email away.
