Selection Suggestions

An Experience consultant brings skills and expertise that may be lacking in your organization. Counsel can be used on a short-term basis to teach staff, or on an as-needed basis to work with the board. The consultant-as-coach can be a useful model for developing a knowledge base of fundraising principles and techniques. Long-term relationships build trust and dependable results.

Options

Having worked through various situations with a variety of people and needs, your consultant brings a range of options to draw on in order to achieve an objective.

COUNSEL

Engaging A PlcConsul

Independence

Counsel brings both authority and integrity to your needs. Free to observe organizational dynamics, a consultant tells the truth about your situation and what success will require and is concerned not with popularity but with your success.

COUNSEL

Engaging A PlcConsul

Objectivity

It is natural for staff and volunteers to become emotionally attached to their organizations in ways that sometimes make it difficult to evaluate challenging situations and make good choices. To help you view your organization from the perspective of a potential donor, counsel will diagnose problems and assess strengths and weaknesses

COUNSEL

Engaging A PlcConsul

Vision

When staff are consumed with completing daily tasks, counsel can consider the overall strategy. Remaining focused on long-term objectives is a challenge for every organization. Your consultant will assist in developing clear, coordinated plans for fundraising that identify tasks, timelines, and responsibility.

COUNSEL

Engaging A PlcConsul

Accountability

When you pay a consultant you can expect that things will happen. Onsite meetings that are scheduled with a consultant have an urgency to them.

COUNSEL

Engaging A PlcConsul

Teaming

Teams are conscientious about completing assignments. The consultant keeps organization attention focused on actions that will accomplish goals and will ask the hard questions that others within the organization may be hesitant to push. Results A consultant working with development staff generally produces greater results.

Involving professional counsel in your company/project will seem at first to be a cost decision, it is not, it is a business process decision, which if not taken at the particular time when it is needed may lead to unwanted outcomes and so the proposition is that you should address the issue before you need it and therefore on your terms . Keep this important decision in perspective by focusing on the outcomes you require. Be prepared to know that you do not know everything that you need to know in your selected field and industry.

Be prepared from the beginning (when you start a company) to seek help, especially paid help. This help will very likely be provided by a friend, a family member, a mentor, a facilitator, a financial advisor or a consultant or in our case business and resource counsel. A consultant brings skills and expertise that may be lacking in your organization. Counsel can be used on a short-term basis to teach staff, or on an as-needed basis to work with the board. The consultant-as-coach can be a useful model for developing a knowledge base of fundraising principles and techniques.

Issues For Which You Will Need A Consultant

  • Mentoring and guidance on a senior executive level
  • Dialogue with experts possessing invaluable experience
  • Executive talent your company might otherwise not be able to afford or hire
  • Focus and input into long term company strategy
  • Enhanced Performance
  • Profitability
  • Spot-ON Selection

Companies hire consultants for many reasons. Usually there is a resource gap which requires knowledge, team, product, service, new markets, new partners, new opportunities, new technologies integration, new skillsets, new capacity, or new ideas and even new documentation. The need is usually to fix the issues which arise from the things clients are not so good at or, the things they are not sure how to do or they are not sure if they're doing it right or just the things they don't like doing or even some of the things they are good at - but it's no longer profitable to do it, or even some of the things that you are good at, but just cannot do now. CEO.IKRIMAHPLC gap with a product or technology that can be quickly filled with a consultant (which we define as being an expert with both specific depth of knowledge in a few areas, and an overall breadth of knowledge that allows them to see the "big picture") or contractor (i.e., someone with skills or expertise in one area and less overall breadth who may cost less and be more appropriate for staff augmentation work). Sometimes there is the need for more capacity. There are many reasons, each with different requirements and goals. What is common is that you are paying a premium over a staff resource and demand the results to justify that premium

Skills You Should Expect

Our Consultants are more appropriately referred to Consular Envoys, because of our years of experience and the level at which we are capable of engaging, including "high clearance"; as well as our competence and associations

Discovery, Assessment, and Identification Our counsels have the technical prowess and business savvy to understand the environment; identify broad issues; isolate specific issues; and get a realistic view of where things are and what is needed. From there we can very timely assess the situation and identify several possible solutions to meet the specific goals, requirements, and limitations for resolution. This is where the client benefits from our experience, exposure to various environments and technologies and our ability to collaborate to identify creative yet viable options.

Reasons to Hire a PLcCounsel

  • To supplement staff time when the project is a nonrecurring one (e.g., a new comp plan). If the project will carry over many years or is a continuous one, expanding staff is a better option.
  • To supplement staff expertise because some tasks occur so infrequently, call for special skills that cannot be learned quickly or easily by staff (e.g., project management, new markets, new business and partners).
  • To ensure objectivity. In projects like department reorganizations, that can be political, emotional. A consultant may be able to find a "win-win" solution and can often be accepted by various parties as an objective mediator in any local disputes.
  • To ensure credibility. The local planning director or staff may know the solution to a local problem but selling that solution to the teams, management and shareholders, a counsel or authority may be difficult without the blessing of an "expert" to verify that solution.
  • To obtain a variety of skills. A small community with limited budget and planning staff (or, for that matter, no planning staff) can hire a consulting firm with access to a number of people with different skills. It would be difficult or impossible to hire enough part-time staff to find that variety of skills or find one individual who was that multitalented.
  • To deal with legal and technical requirements. If the board or authority puts a freeze on an hiring activity or is unwilling to commit to any long-term employment, an agency may only be able to hire a consultant to deal with an impossible work load or project.
  • Enhanced Employee Production
  • Rapid growth support
  • Experienced support Immediate need for extra talent
  • You have a critical project or strategy to build and implement
  • Timely support to kick-start an internal program
  • Rapid Staff Turnover
  • Missing business opportunities.
  • General management
  • Temporary managers
  • Interim Executives.
  • Operations management and Project Managers..
  • Factory moves/re-organizations.
  • Management.
  • A lack of available talent.
  • Delayed Project.
  • Avoiding fixed costs and overheads.
  • Implementing key decisions.
  • Key staff leaving.

  • " What working style, organizational, and locational considerations will affect the ability of the consultant to facilitate the relationship with you?

A good consultant can add a significant amount of value to a project and is well worth their fee. Conversely, selecting the wrong consultants can cost a lot of money, may lead you in the wrong direction, could alienate your team members, and may not help you achieve your overall goals. Some consultants see an engagement as “their next job”, and not “a set of tasks that needs to be completed.” The difference in mindset will make a big difference in performance and approach. For example, documentation, training, and knowledge transfer are all areas that help position a company to handle things on their own once the consultant leaves. A good consultant realizes that companies will recognize this, and there will likely be additional work for this person or company at a later time.
