When we look in the mirror we see what we have always seen. It’s familiar and comfortable and we accept it as normal. Things seldom change radically, everything looks normal. To our eyes nothing changes, even though we may have aged and things may have become a bit slack round the jawline or gone south a bit. And we have all probably experienced that ‘Mirror, mirror on the wall’ moment when we are a bit optimistic about what looks back at us because self-criticism is hard isn’t it!
So what does your organisation see when it looks in the mirror? Do you ever look? Why would you look? What would tempt you to look closer?
Because that’s what a governance, strategic or procedural review or audit is designed to do. It holds up a mirror for your organisation to look into and then reflect on what is happening. The really clever bit here is that this mirror talks back and tells you the truth. So why would you not try it and see what can be achieved?
Logic says that all organisations must evolve. So if you have an inkling – or maybe a huge gut instinct – that your mirror is not quite telling you the truth then we would be happy to look a little deeper with you. Your first call to us will discover whether it is indeed review time and, even better, is free-of-charge.
It is simply not possible for everything to be the same as it always was but we know the future can and should be much better.
