Reasons to hire Stultiens Project & Management Business Counselling

• Specific knowledge, skills and experience
The most common reason for hiring a business counsellor is access to specific skills that are limited or unavailable in their company. By engaging us, you gain access to a professional and comprehensive network, the experience that includes understanding industry, level of relevant experience and the unique skills required for the contract. Because we regularly work with different clients, we have a much broader experience and a different perspective on a situation or a problem. We offer business counselling with a niche, short-term or project-based, a practical skills set on demand.

• Increase business performance
The fastest way to gain business and increase profit is by hiring someone who knows what they’re doing. Too often, companies employ employees who pretend that they can do the job, but instead, lots of money is spent on learning to do the job. We as top business counsellors, on the other hand, have years of experience both across industries and job functions, do have the skill-sets to do the job, fast and the right way. Business counselling is about having a proven track-record to improve business, boost sales and cut costs.

• Professionals in solving a business problem
We do have an open mind; we are ready to study, to listen, to observe and above all amalgamate. Our customers of business counselling often benefit from this attitude because people in their company need to focus on their daily routines to effectively manage their work. In most cases, it is for staff not possible to step back and to rethink to analyse a problem, and therefore problem-solving skills are underexposed. This is precisely where we do come in, to help as a problem-solving professional.

• Best practice solutions
Counsellors have a rare right to work with multiple customers in the same industry and often provide a different customer with similar issues across various industries. This broad perspective gives access to unique knowledge and experience of best practices both in the industries and in the functions. In business counselling, we offer proven concepts and solutions by the proven expertise of Stultiens Project & Management.

• Temporary staff for short-term or ad-hoc/one-off projects
Companies just lack the time or resources to do it. This as businesses must always focus on their daily operations, and new projects usually require people’s core tasks to be prioritised. Hiring new staff to fill these gaps is not still meaningful because the issues and many of these projects are unique. Business counselling can be an option to assign particular projects and implementing plans to a consultant, and not integrate new projects and tasks with the daily operations, as it will distract focus, amplify pressure and do not lead to the desired result. Besides, a temporary addition of hiring a consultant can lead to several other business benefits.

• External objectivity
In business counselling, we are external counsellors dealing with business issues and tough but durable decisions. We guide clarify perspectives and viewpoints in decision-making, as we are trained to analyse information and develop great strategies. We often take on new and innovative viewpoints or potential challenges which customers probably would have overlooked or would not able to see or their own. And our independence has another significant advantage; completely objective and transparent we enable to make improvements without prejudices and harm others.

• External validation of business plans
Not just an external objectivity in an unbiased view of your business in identify problem areas and advising strategies to keep the business on track. Also, we review in business counselling the plans, assess the opportunities objectively and give a second opinion.
External validation is an elaborate guarantee prior to making an important business decision.

• Create new business
Guiding or assisting in new businesses start-ups, a process which is almost second nature for us in business counselling. We make business ideas a reality, define business plans, focus on sales and prospective customers, find the resources and business partners. Initiator as a business leader, a quartermaster, in cooperation with a team to which we can gradually transfer tasks. Hands-on, result driven, as your business and sales representative to flourish your business.

• Impartial political cover
Hiring business counsellors and consultants can offer business owners the opportunity to achieve or motivate the desired conclusion with adequate internal political coverage to avoid conflict. This may be particularly useful in situations where prominent personalities within a company support old-fashioned existing matters or oppose controversially suggested changes such as job losses, strategic and operational changes or salary change and employee benefits. External business counsellors could be able to change sceptic stakeholders to promoters much easier than senior management or board directors. The role of a business counsellor in disclosing controversial decisions will be based on the long-term interest if the company, and but ultimately, management will value the robust substantiation and backup in such situations; create a safe zone for management or do the “dirty jobs”.

• Access to information and resources for insights
Business counselling specialise in niche areas or particular business functions due to this we can extract the right information. Information and knowing how to get access to specific information is power. However, obtaining the correct data can be challenging; accurate steering and decision factors are unknown, or (internal) cooperation is denied and the information is withheld, or no mutual connections have been made. Or a decent management information system is not available, and functions such as data mining, research and analytics are underexposed. We can assist in getting complete transparency and gain the insights for better decision making.

• Variety in business beneficial roles
A certainly added value in various roles of importance. Usually these are already tacitly included in our assignments, but of course, we can make them even more specific by explicitly naming and describing them. In business counselling, Stultiens Project & Management may have roles, such as:
– business coach, confidant and sounding board

– supervisor and “first aid” business emergency service
