Bayard Partnership
2008
After 25 years as an ‘employed’ manager, I decided to reorient my career and become independent. I found in Bayard what I was looking for: a good mix of driven independent people wanting to give their best, each of them trying to surpass their clients expectations. They were driven by a desire to to focus on delivery and quality, rather than a (political) career ambition. I also liked the idea of being independant but still working under a shared brand, enjoy the added value of working in a team and not being managed.
We are a true partnership. From one side we have our services to our clients and then there’s the fact that we are a group that interacts in an open and honest way. We each have influence and decision power but no hierarchy – and it works!
My Shares! 😉 What I was intrinsically searching for, nearly ten years ago, has been realized and is in the same time a continuous challenge for further improvement, therefore my expectations have and are been fulfilled and that’s a good feeling. Also, the effort I invested, and continue to invest are in balance with my financial rewards.
I see no immediate big change. I like, and see a need for, playing an intermediate role between our clients and our Associates & Contractors. I can imagine, in years to come, I will want to spend more time in a more supportive role, coaching others and adapting to what is needed by The Partnership at the time. My intrinsic values of keeping people together by making sure that there is a match between the needs of our clients, The Partnership and ones personal ambitions/values, is something I want to continue to invest time in.
