Consulting is Telling,
And Sometimes That is Exactly What You Need Most
What is the difference between coaching and consulting? The distinction looks like this. Coaching is a process designed to lead you to find your own answers to your problem. Consulting is bringing in an expert and paying them to tell you what to do. As an outsider, I courageously ask hard questions and encourage conversations that push you out of your comfort zone in order to grow, transform, and lead. I have the spirit of a troublemaker and rule breaker, for the greater good. This makes for a great consultant.
I bring ideas from other organizations for your consideration. Survey our client list and you see we cover a wide footprint in terms of industry, profession, and business model. This is part of our competitive advantage. We are always learning and bringing new ideas to the table.
At Bravo cc we offer you a variety of consulting services. These include:
1. Real Time Presentation Development. We build your presentation, develop your slide deck, and practice with the you/the team to work in unison, like a beautifully synchronized swimming team.
2. Change Communication Consulting. Need to roll out a program or message that might be met with resistance? Yeah. That happens in every organization. Things change. How you communicate change is critical to the success of the change. The research is clear, 80% of change initiatives fail. You can’t afford to be a part of that sad and depressing statistic. Let us show you how to do it RIGHT.
3. Strategic Planning. Not gonna lie: Strategic Planning is a beating. It is labor intensive, long, and mentally/physically/emotionally exhausting. In most cases, the team doesn’t want to be there and many times they don’t trust the process because the last strategic plan just evaporated into the ether, never to be seen again. Here’s the deal—your organization must have a picture of the present and future and to do that you need to work with an OUTSIDE FACILITATOR who is is not politically connected to the work. We have a (1) day, SEVEN STEP process to develop your strategic plan that builds in accountability and action from jump street. We don’t leave you high and dry either. We build into the contract check ins over the next 12 months to discuss your progress, trouble shoot, and support your efforts.

chased this client for a while and my chance came on a Friday afternoon. “Can you come Monday and help us prep for our interview MONDAY AFTERNOON?” I had four hours to work on their 20 minute presentation TO WIN A $20 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT. When I arrived I found a deck with 60 slides and the executive in charge told me “We don’t stand a chance” I did my thing, TRANSFORMING their presentation in just four hours. When they left they had a cohesive and smart presentation with TEN SLIDES. The following day the executive was kind enough to include me on an email” “Just got word from the client. We won!” This is the best kind of feeling, when something is on the line and you get the outcome you want. I understand how to help you transform your message to win the work. I have a fantastic track record. Let’s grab a coffee and talk more.
