My role is to help our clients realize their full potential. I help them imagine what’s possible and put them on a path that is realistic and usually challenging. The easiest route for a consultant often is to tell the clients the answer. I’ve found that this doesn’t necessarily make the answer right. The only right answer for the client is the one that not only solves their specific issue, but also inspires them to learn and grow along the way.
I understand the difference between asking and telling. Sometimes I find clients simply need to puzzle through things with a trusted partner who is genuinely interested in helping them succeed. This means that I don’t always have to have the answer. Many times leaders know there are conversations that should take place within their organizations. I help start those conversations. They aren’t always easy, but they always lead to breakthroughs that create lasting change.
When I’m not working (which is rare), I enjoy family, friends and working in my yard.
