Choosing a Consultant

What to Look for in a Consultant

Your organization has a unique combination of strong leadership styles, a magnetic service or product, and a story of how it all started. Before you decide which consultant can solve your problems, the first step is to determine whether they align with your values.


The 4 questions to ask:

  1. Is the consultant worthy of my trust?
  2. Do their beliefs align with ours?
  3. Can the person provide the expertise we need?
  4. Will I get high value on my investment?



Hiring a consultant isn’t a decision to make lightly. For this type of partnership to work, the relationship must be built on mutual trust and respect. I guide every client through a discussion to define the project’s Objectives (which goals wish to achieve), Measures (how we’ll know it is successful), and Value (the qualitative and quantitative benefits you’ll enjoy when it works).



If you’re looking for a sunshine-and-roses perspective, you won’t find it here. I’m all about giving you a straight-shooting, objective, and future-focused response that will help you become more risk intelligent. Let’s find the gaps in your strategic plan.



Great problem-solvers don’t just slap a bandage on a gaping wound; they use whatever tools are necessary to guarantee you get the best outcome. With my wide range of management experience and data analysis expertise, I offer a valuable combination of practical knowledge and the uncanny ability to spot root problems in your strategy.



Fancy flowcharts and planning materials are nice, but at the end of the day… what happens to your organization if nothing changes? My clients clearly see the value they can expect to enjoy as a result of investing in my service. The biggest benefits are not just financial, they’re also qualitative: improved communication, higher engagement, better decision-making clarity, quick response to unforeseen setbacks, and improved team collaboration.
