An iterative form of humble inquiry and guidance in which the consultant works alongside the client to co-create solutions. A Process Consultant’s purpose is not to provide ready-made solutions but to advance the Client’s growth and learning through an authentic discovery process.
Organizations and businesses dealing with complex change, adaptation or growth benefit from this approach, which includes the social, relational, cultural and psychological dynamics of change, not just the tasks involved. Process Consulting was first described nearly 50 years ago by Dr. Edgar Schein, who is Professor Emeritus at MIT Sloan School of Management.
Unlike traditional consultants who may sell ready-made solutions, as Process Consultants, we go through an authentic discovery process to identify what you aim to accomplish, and more importantly, why.
By engaging and collaborating with you in a meaningful way, we go below the surface to ensure we are addressing the right things. This is especially important for organizations facing complex change, adaptation, or growth.
We work alongside you to develop a roadmap to help you move from where you are to where you want to be. Our consultants co-create solutions with you and we shift along the path together, when needed. We keep an eye on your ultimate destination and work to prevent unnecessary detours along the way.
We help you learn throughout the process, growing your leadership capacity for continued, long-term success.
