About Us

LaConte Consulting was founded by profitability strategist and writer Grace LaConte in May 2014. Unlike typical consultants, it partners with clients long-term to improve their profit, growth, and business value. LaConte Consulting uses Value Focused Consulting and the REV method:

  • Respect
  • Empathize
  • Valuate

In conjunction with LaConte Consulting, ConsultX WA (launched in 2020) provides training to accountants and business professionals who want to become high-level business advisors to their clients using ConsultX Business Consulting Solutions.

About the Founder

Grace LaConte launched the company after working in healthcare management and software companies on internal consulting projects. She recognized the importance of Foundational Staff after moving from an employee role to a Director role. As a result, she developed the Employee For a Day concept, which is integral to the Value Focused Consulting approach.

During her career, Grace has served as a Risk and Compliance Officer, Data Analyst, Director of HIM, and Director of Marketing. She holds a Communications BA degree and a Master of Science in Health Information Management… but she strongly supports trades and non-traditional career paths and believes that college isn’t for everyone.

Grace deeply respects the hard work and dedication of business owners and seeks to be a student of her clients, learning how they view the world and exploring ways to help them succeed. She is passionate about helping SME (small- to medium-sized enterprise) owners to:

  • build wealth,
  • provide for their family,
  • support the community,
  • position their company for a high-profit sale, and
  • retire comfortably.

Grace is also the Managing Director of ConsultX WA. Her popular visual graphics and risk intelligence concepts are used by universities, executive teams, and non-profit organizations around the world. Her headquarters is in Vancouver, Washington, USA.

Healthy growth cannot happen without some degree of damage to existing processes, mindset, and ways of thinking.
