Onlangs kreeg ik van iemand een email met een 6-minuten durende management cursus. Ik vond die zo goed dat ik die hier zal delen met iedereen. Hier komt de eerste les:
A man is getting into the shower just as his young wife is finishing her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herserlf in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour. Before she can say a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you €500 to drop that towel.”
After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her €500 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.
When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, “Who whas that?” “It was Bob the next door neighbour”, she replies. “Great”, the husband says, “did he say anything about the €500 he owes me?”
Moral of the story
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders, in time you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.
