DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONSULTANT AND COACH!

The definitions of coaching and consulting often get blended, but coaching is generally defined as helping others build expertise while consulting is lending one's expertise. At Colton Strawser Consulting we believe coaching and consulting are both essential when working with clients - also known as Adaptive Consulting (lending expertise while also assisting an organization, and its board/staff, increase its ability to successfully function independently in the future).

Some organizations simply do not have the resources to hire a consulting team to help them handle a project - which is why we have our coaching services. A coaching call can be a great way to get an expert opinion for a fraction of the cost. 

Here are a few things that you could schedule a coaching session for:
You have an upcoming grant due and want to discuss the various components of your needs assessment and logic model
Your board is not currently engaged in fundraising and you need some ideas on how to get them motivated and moving
You are looking for ways to streamline your office operations with the integration of technology or other means to reduce time
You just need someone to chat with and maybe vent a little (it's like philanthropic therapy)

Whatever you are facing , a coaching call can help set you on the path toward success. Click one of the links below to book a coaching appointment now!
