How would you begin your services and how long would the process take? The process begins with a consultation to see if we can "help". If we can, we will make a proposal for a first project which typically takes from three to five weeks to complete.
How do you charge for your services? We normally charge by the project or stages of a project.
Will you provide me with a written proposal before beginning your work? Yes, we will give you written proposal, along with an engagement agreement and a confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement.
How long do your projects normally last? This is dependent upon the complexity of the project and the degree of difficulty we may encounter in working to create consensus though six months to two years is probably the norm.
When you finish your work with me will I have a written report or deliverable? We believe in results, not long written reports, but you will be kept completely informed at every step in our relationship, including written reports, if necessary.
Would you use my current outside professional advisors or would you replace them? We always hope to work with the current professionals. However, in some cases where specific skills and experience are required we might make a recommendation from a list of professionals.
I do not see any psychologists of psychiatrists in your group. I would think they would be needed. When we find a clear need for such professionals we have affiliations with professionals who specialize in this work and in whom we have confidence. Can you assist me in finding members for my Board of Advisors or Board of Directors? Yes. If we cannot locate someone for you, we can introduce you to a number of professional search organizations and assist you in the process.
Do you address organizational behavior and organizational development? Certainly. Assessment of organizational behavior and development is critical to the success of our work so it is always a part of each assignment. Each of us is expert in this area.
