How to know if you need management consulting, or business consulting
Having a clear understanding of expectations are important when you’re making a decision regarding your business, especially when it comes to bringing in a business consultant.
Management consultants and business consultants are both professional individuals who come along to partner and co-pilot your business with you. They’re constantly evaluating and aligning four key business areas: People, Sales, Profit, and Self.
For more on what that means, I’ve written about my definition of a business consultant and how a business consultant can help you manage your business.
Here’s how you know what you need, you just ask yourself where you are in your growth and what challenges you’re facing.
For example, are you having difficulty preserving the culture, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit that gave your company momentum in the beginning? Are you having difficulty maintaining balance and instilling structure for new horizons?
If you answered yes, most likely your company isn’t a small to medium sized business and management consulting can help you work these issues. If you answered no, try asking yourself these questions and see what comes up.
Is your businesses growing from start-up to regional player and beyond? Is the transition from feisty upstart to complex organization completely messing with you?
If you answered yes, most likely your company is going through a gear shift and business consulting can help you work through these issues.
Management consulting and business consulting are both services that a professional business coach provides, co-piloting your business with you as you lead and as you grow.
