Let’s Say We Set Up a Free Consultation, Then What Happens

Contact Me — Realize the Benefits of Consultative Problem Solving

Many call on me because they greatly benefit from having a skilled and unbiased external third party where all work together to more accurately frame the real issues that are impacting their situation.

  • Even more valued is my ability to succinctly evaluate the  implications of these problems in your situation and then present a needs/outcome proposal outlining resources,  action steps, costs and targeted results.
  • I am  exceptionally competent and adept at this consultative problem solving process – and it is a skill that I teach as well.
  • We’ll practiced, consultative problem solving, that is performed on a collaborative basis, achieves the goal of producing a solid working agreement while reducing any mutual mystification.

Remember  —  Meeting Together Does Not Demand A Crisis

Call me.  Invite me in.

  • Evaluate my ability to act as a key, “go-to” resource for you.
  • You do not need a crisis as a reason to call me.
  • I am  always ready to listen and respond.

Yes — I am highly skilled and effective at “putting out fires,” but I am exceptionally proficient, moving forward, and building  on foundations of  performance that achieve  the measurable business results you seek.

  • The truth is – over time,  I seek to earn a place as a key collaborative partner in producing targeted shifts regarding the human performance, organizational effectiveness and productivity of your organization.
  • Ultimately, for the few organizations that I commit to work with at any one time,  all benefit  from a longer term professional, collaborative business relationship that earns and builds on its success one assignment at a time.

“Questions are the Answer” —  The Shortcut to Quality Solutions

After years of fine tuning my skills at consultative problem solving, I assert that at this stage of the process, “good questions are the answer to deriving great solutions.”

  • I receive your permission to ask you questions.
  • I expect and encourage questions from you.
  • If you are concerned about what are the best questions to fit your circumstances,  just ask us the questions and I will provide the structure that fits your needs.

I then follow a pragmatically creative and  logical process to thoroughly, yet quickly, frame options and identify solutions.

The Power of Yes and No

At some point in our discussions, you may determine that this is not for you.

  • You have the power to say yes or no.
  • I would expect you to say, in that moment, “No..thank you, I do not need your services.”
  • And it is over  —  simple and easy.

The same is true for me.

  • I may determine that I cannot work with your problem as well.
  • I would say “No..thank you and, if you are interested,  here are some additional resources  that may better resolve your problems.”

When you see that I’ve produced the proposal that fits your needs, Iwould expect to hear, “Yes, what’s next.”
