FAQ’s

I have a skilled team and collaborative partnerships, why do we need external support?

It is sometimes difficult for operational teams to have the capacity, time knowledge, or desire to move to a strategic planning place without some additional support. It is hard to imagine implementation strategies for change when they already feel they are doing their best or are already stretched too thin. Likewise, there is sometimes a disconnect between leadership’s expectations for change with the current skills, capacity, and motivation within operations. Bringing in an external, neutral consultant can help with bridging between the strategy and operations. You do have a skilled team and yes you could do this on your own but is it their top priority? As long as your team has competeing focuses this work will feel as though it is ‘off the side of their desk’. Bringing in external support can help their skills, expertise and leadership shine.
