Consulting may be the right approach for you if you prefer participating in a supportive relationship where you recognize me as having the knowledge necessary to provide you with potential answers and possible solutions to your challenges. I will bring focus and clarity to your problem and offer you potential options to consider for the successful resolution of those problems. This means that as your consultant, you feel comfortable recognizing me as the expert in the subject matter that has brought you to seek consultation. My role is to provide you with the answers you are searching for based on my knowledge and experience. In consulting, I emphasize an outward-focused approach to defining and clarifying your goals and the obstacles or challenges that have prevented you from achieving them in the past.
I will guide you through the successful accomplishment of these tasks by using numerous coaching techniques and strategies that help me to identify what matters most to you, including identifying influential factors like your focus, skills, capabilities, habits, motivations, perspectives, values, dreams, levels of life satisfaction, and any gaps that may be revealed between these factors and your chosen life goals.
Throughout our interactions, I will be an engaged and active listener, respectfully prompting you to answer any questions that will help me discover the true nature of your problem or challenge as well as any potential obstacles that may have prevented you from reaching your goals in the past.
Together, we will discuss my recommended strategies and solutions for you to implement as you work toward the achievement of your goals. I will guide you through this process by telling you what I think, and then asking you for feedback to ensure that you feel comfortable with the option or strategy that I believe will work best for you and your situation.
Finally, I will support your success by engaging with you in multiple reinforcement strategies (like role-playing) to assist you in developing the social, emotional, and interpersonal skills and techniques that will help you successfully achieve your goals. The practical reinforcement of these techniques during our consulting interactions will allow you to comfortably gain the experience you need to confidently implement the option or strategy that I have suggested for you. All reinforcement strategies will be provided in a supportive atmosphere of positive assistance, focusing on the successful achievement of your goals.
If you would like, I can continue to support you in your forward progress by suggesting that you provide some level of accountability for the implementation of my suggested plan so that you can successfully move forward in achieving your goals.
If consulting sounds like the right approach for you, please contact me so that we can schedule a free 20 minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and goals, and I can answer any questions that you might have about the consulting process.
