Frequently Asked Questions
What does it cost?
Do you have a discretionary budget?
Our micro-consulting, phase 1 package is typically within your discretionary budget and we can accomplish a lot!
And, don’t worry - when you need more assistance, we won’t do the bait-and-switch dance, of now suddenly requiring a huge budget to proceed - We hate that!
How does it work?
First, we start with a complimentary consultation (Curious? Give us a call and we’ll know within 10 minutes if we’re a good fit. 281-469-4244).
Next, we work together to outline a step-by-step plan that meets your budget. This may include a simple coaching approach to help you or your internal team complete a project, or it may include full-on, OD curriculum design and fulfillment – you decide.
Our expert management and OD consultants will help you and your team successfully outsource all or just one component.
What exactly is organizational development micro-consulting?
Our micro-consulting services are a painless and affordable way to get the consulting help you need, without the bloated expense or over-engineered solutions, typically associated with consulting services.
While we can provide A-Z consulting, implementation and fulfillment services, we understand that most clients don’t need the full enchilada.
We bring the benefits of the Gig Economy without the headaches of gig-vendor vetting and management.
Through a single-point-of-contact, our clients work with our Business Partner Advisors and Expert Consultants, who help to flush out the challenge and provide actionable, best-practice consulting or when optioned, incremental or full-package solutions.
We listen to our client’s goals, help assess the requirements for success, help evaluate the many options, design or help build the business case and can often, provide a pre-vetted solution.
What if I need a fast solution?
We got you covered. Depending upon the challenge and your goals, some solutions can be ready for launch in a matter of days. For example, for some clients, our off-the-shelf programs can be quickly customized to meet your goals. For other situations, we augment your internal team’s resources by:
Facilitating analysis and best-practice discussions enabling faster and quality decision-making
Administering employee engagement, culture surveys or competency assessments
Co-creating an incremental and prioritized approach
Pre-vetting solutions and making recommendations
Managing or fulfilling one or more of the components
What are your qualifications?
First, we believe experience matters and our experts help reduce the amount of time required to produce a solution or well-conceived plan.
Additionally, many of our management consultants and OD experts have decades of senior level experience, advanced degrees, and 3000+ hours of practical consulting, coaching, training, HRO/PEO, and fulfilment experience. We map your needs and goals with our subject matter experts who can pull from years of experience and thus, save you and your team time, money, and heartache.
In fact, we are so confident in the qualifications of our experts, that we guarantee your satisfaction. If our expert isn’t a good fit, (typically they know it and bring it up even before you do), we will immediately provide recommendations for their replacement. And, we always have back-up experts who are ready to take on a challenge!
