What is consulting?
In consulting, we provide our advice as well as direct contribution to achieve the goals we agreed with our clients.
Sometimes this is confused with coaching and indeed we see both appearing frequently while we work with our clients. It’s important to know though that during consulting the value is primarily brought by the consultant’s knowledge and previous experience that appears in the format of specific pieces of advice, plans, materials or tools. In contrast, in a coaching engagement the solution is generated by the client and it is facilitated by the coach and the coaching process.
Based on our past experiences as successful business leaders we can be especially helpful advisors to top and middle management as well as owners of enterprises. The basis of our service is always to understand the situation or problem first and agree with the client on the approach and expected results. Our expertise covers various phases of strategy creation and execution as well as building an effective organization against those strategies. Our motto – unleash your potential – is what we are after in consulting as well.
