Every business reaches a point wherein they’re stuck at a particular problem without a viable solution in sight. It’s normal for companies to reach bottlenecks that hinder business growth and development.
One of the best ways to get past these bottlenecks is to hire a business solutions consultant. Usually, if you’re a business owner, there’s a tendency to not see all the problems in your company due to too much familiarity with the operations. With a business solutions consultant, you can have a third party look into your business without bias. Having an external person perform an objective assessment of your business can also reveal hidden problems, pinpoint existing bottlenecks, and suggest areas for improvement.
With that in mind, let’s discuss the three factors to consider when hiring a business consultant.
1. Experience, Expertise, and Educational Background
A business solutions consultant must have enough experience and expertise in their field. When interviewing a consultant, be sure to ask about their area of expertise and how it relates to the specific problem(s) you want to solve.
For example, let’s assume your business wants to improve payroll and employee benefits. You’ll want to hire a business consultant with a proven background in payroll and human resources management.
2. Methodology and Concern for Clients
The business solution consultant’s methodology and concern for the client are paramount. These people’s services usually don’t come cheap so you want someone who has a clear approach to problem-solving and is committed to seeing your business succeed.
Hence, be sure to ask the consultant about their methods to give you a better idea of their approach and timeline. It’s also important to observe the consultant’s attitude towards you. Sometimes, consultants may want to oversell their services or capabilities just to get clients. It’s important to work with someone who is genuinely concerned about moving your business forward.
3. Outstanding Interpersonal and Communication Skills
A good business solutions consultant is articulate. This means possessing unusually strong communication skills, both verbally and in writing.
Perhaps more important than his or her ability to speak and write in a clear, eloquent manner is the ability to listen. After all, communication is a two-way street — you’ll also need to be articulate, especially when explaining the problem, as well as any attempts you may have made in the past to solve it. No matter how smart a consultant is, they won’t be able to deliver the right solutions if they don’t fully understand the challenges you face.
