It may be that they have some ideas and simply want to talk them through with us or it may be that they have no idea at all of how to proceed. In these cases they do not ask for a general mentor but a specific problem solver.
Our experience and knowledge, together with our ability to look at the situation afresh from the outside and with no emotional or other history clouding our thinking processes puts us in a very good position to cut through the confusion and help the client decide what must be done and how they will achieve this.
Our involvement helps to address the problem much more swiftly and efficiently than the founders or directors fighting with this alone, and once the problem is solved they are able to return their concentration back to where it should be – running and growing their business. Not only does this often save the company hard costs but it also enables them to return to growing revenue.
