So many to choose from and all claim they are experts and professionals. They are value added, innovative, results-focused and business partners. Not an uncommon thing to hear as more and more businesses see the need to utilize outside experts, Consultants or Coaches will help improve an organization’s performance, productivity and ultimately profitability.
Let us be honest, there are a lot of people out there that call themselves Consultants and Coaches. Some actually are. Many others are seeking part-time work between jobs or believe that their most recent certificate of training or college degree actually qualifies them to be one. In my over 30 years of executive management experience, I have seen many individuals claim to be consultants or coaches in areas they have no real hands on experience in or even legitimate expertise gained through the workplace. You need to know how to chose the right one for you.
