Beaufort Transformations and transactions has a completely new look, including a new payoff: Perfection made Personal. What does that mean in daily practice? Reason to ask the Beaufort consultants how they make it ‘Personal’. This week: Jan Janssen.
“We are used to dealing with turbulent situations through our years of experience and can therefore bring peace of mind to our clients.” – Jan Janssen, Partner
Perfection made Personal, what do you think that means?
“Beaufort always wants to achieve the best result for the client. This requires you to go to extremes, both as a consultancy firm and, in particular, as an individual. This applies at a substantive level and certainly also at a human level. Our clients are often confronted with special and sometimes very stressful situations in which they have little or no experience. We work on the basis of content and at the same time pay a great deal of attention to the process and to people. The fact that I am an entrepreneur myself and can easily put myself in the position of the entrepreneur also plays a part in this”.
And Jan: how do you make it Personal?
Jan states: “We naturally speak to a great many employees within organisations from high to low. Often they have all ended up in an uncertain situation. I then try to help them gain insight into the situation and create a calm environment. We are used to dealing with turbulent situations through our years of experience and can therefore bring peace of mind to our clients. Don’t forget that employees seamlessly sense how urgent situations are. By mapping out and objectifying matters, we bring clarity to the situation. We find it extremely important to involve our customers and their employees in this process. By listening carefully, you will see that a stressful situation can be transformed into positive energy and action. A simple phone call after an intensive meeting to ask how the person is doing often does miracles.”
