What We Do To Serve You Best
Provide Consulting Solution
The primary role of consulting is to help organizations become aware of their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and to minimize risks associated with a hostile business environment. Proverbs 15:22 declares, “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers, they succeed.”
We strive for excellent communication as it is a vital part of leadership and is essential to consulting. Excellent communication skills include both written and oral forms. Communication “is not a thing,” but a process,” therefore, both the consultant-client must have a shared understanding of where the transaction is headed by whatever means possible (Hackman and Johnson, 2013). According to Mayfield and Mayfield (2017) “Communication is not static or originating from a single source” Consultants have not communicated until there is adequate feedback from clients or when there is a shared understanding. Communication is not a thing but a dynamic process.
The environment in which for-profit and nonprofit organizations exist is competitive and sometimes hostile, but one way to remain viable is to take advantage of strategic planning. When making strategies, strategic leaders must consider the current status of the organization and the opportunities for growth. “Strategy is about people creating outcome” (Ackermann & Eden, 2011). The way leaders think and act is a vital indicator of how effective a strategy their organizational strategies will be.
