How to book a good consultant for your projects?

From an extra pair of hands to the person that advises on strategical decisions and the future of your company.

Working as a consultant at another company starts with an understanding of the business model and the company culture. This requires the consultant to not be reluctant or afraid to ask the right questions at the beginning of a project.


This can only be successful if the approach is aligned and in respect of the other stakeholders on a project. It seems easy but it requires to leave our own comfort zone and isn’t that just something that we are all scared to do?
We come in contact with a lot of people and have a brief timeframe to understand the mindset and the values of those persons within your company that might be a little different to the people we are used to working with.

Developing this ability to quickly and creatively approach the project and the people makes someone a perfect match for this kind of work. And let this now be the key to play the game. This meta motivation -if we refer to Maslow pyramid of needs- is why consultants go beyond the scope and strive for constant amelioration.



If you book a consultant who wants to take over your entire company immediately, think twice as the required change in management will not see the light of day anytime soon. To roll out new era products, services, procedures or methodologies, time is of essence.
Stakeholder management requires a consultant that understands the interaction between the different Belbin team characters and positions himself in the required role. This demands reflection and experience in the kick-off phase of the mission.



The good compliance consultant is the person who would fit into your company seamlessly and would not stand out as an average Joe vis-à-vis your internal staff. You also understand that the consultant will not be forever at your side, but isn’t that the sign that your organisation is back on track where it belongs as a business?


Mission accomplished.
