This would be the most common view of a lot of consultants and in some cases it is probably pretty accurate.
Indeed sometimes that is exactly what you might need. There are a number of analogies one could draw upon - do you know whether you have set your watch to the correct time? Were you so busy working, that you missed the daylight savings change? Does your watch have a whole lot of features that you have never used, or maybe even never knew it had? Is your watch now outdated, and all of your competitors are getting ahead with better ones?
What we can do is check all of those things. We have been into a number of different businesses, and can draw on a wealth of experience to make sure that "your watch" is in the right mode, telling the right time and so on, perhaps even making sure you have the right watch to suit your style...
Sometimes it is extremely valuable for a business owner or leader to seek another opinion of how things are going, even if you think they are probably OK. We follow a set of processes to make sure that we always analyse the critical elements of your business and are able to bring an unbiased, clear view of how things are progressing. If we see what you see, that means we can quickly establish an action plan to get things moving. Of course we may both see that nothing much needs doing - that is also a great result and offers a great deal of comfort for you and your team, that someone else has been able to independently verify that your hard work really is paying off.
