If you’re looking at our case studies. . . You’re probably wondering if we can help you solve a problem or make a decision. Maybe you’re looking to see if our approach to coaching fits you, or if our expertise meets the needs of your organization. With that in mind, let us share with you how we approach our work with clients.
First, we’re not simply hired guns, or experts for hire. Certainly, we can talk you through an immediate governance crisis, or help you in a pinch with a one-day facilitated discussion with your board. But our intent is to help you to create change and have a meaningful impact. A relationship like that takes time to build. You are not our customer — you’re a valued client, and we’ll be able to serve you best if we have an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship that is based on trust and respect.
Next, you should know up front, we ask a lot of questions. We want to fully appreciate the problem you want to understand, the vision you wish to inspire, the personal growth you seek to master. We try to soften and mix it up some, so you won’t always feel like you’re in an interrogation, but the more data we have, the better our analysis and feedback will be.
That leads us to an important distinction. We won’t ask you a bunch of questions and then reword your answers into consultant-speak and parrot them back to you. You’re investing time and resources, you should expect a return. Our insights and recommendations will always be evidence-based. You may not always like what we say, but at least you know how we are interpreting the data.
Foremost, Your Mission and Values matter. We respect that our clients are working with their constituents to improve society, cure illnesses or lead complex industries into the future. If we are selected to serve as your advisors, we’ll be as committed to you– as you are to your Mission.
Let’s see if our core principles are a fit. If they are, we’re pretty confident we can help.
Now you know a little bit about us, let’s start a discussion about you.
