FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
How can a consultant benefit my business?
Answer: A consultant provides an unbiased perspective by lending a specialized expertise to assist in improving internal processes, reorienting leadership focus, garnishing support for organizational change, and being able to generate holistic solutions to advance business objectives. When handling special projects consultants can offer an affordable alternative to hiring a full-time employee. In time of change when in-house leadership needs an influential voice to navigate the Company infrastructure to facilitate execution of new strategies, consultants provide a strategic advantage. Lastly, business owners are limited by time, resources or expertise creating a value-proposition for hiring a consultant who is capable of providing a fresh perspective to enhancing existing business models for sustain success. An experienced business consultant has in-depth experience working with many different organizations which provide effective solutions faster, with lower cost and less resistance.
What is the return on investment (ROI) for investing in consulting services?
Answer: If the right expertise is retained then a consultant is never a cost to the bottom-line. Consultants who excel in their deliverables to organizations provide solutions to systemic issues that account for long-term success – reducing cost, improving productivity, increasing operating margins, enhancing employee morale, strengthening leadership core competencies, deepening brand loyalty, bolstering customer commitment and mitigating risk. The upfront cost for a consulting project is significantly reduced when compared to the extended impact to generating new revenue streams or reducing cost by eliminating waste.

Providing quality services is reliant on moving swiftly towards achieving the targeted results guiding each client to continue to move forward fully equipped with the tools and resources necessary for achieving the desired results.

How do I know you are the right fit for my Company?
Answer: The truth is you don’t. In the interest of transparency, the only way to know if our Company is the right fit for your business is to schedule a face-to-face consultation to evaluate your business needs and develop a rapport. What I can share with you is that Grace Covenant Consulting will never compromise our own code of ethics by extending our services beyond the scope of our proven expertise. We are always happy to refer potential clients to more qualified consultants if their business objectives do not align with our portfolio of services.
What is the cost for your services?
Answer: Because we believe there is not a one size fits all approach to consulting all price points for services are tailored to match the client’s individual needs. We do offer an hourly rate but have proven our value-proposition by pricing our services based upon the project scope. So the cost of our expertise is always negotiated based upon the targeted deliverables for each client’s unique business needs. This enables us to remain competitive and offer a pricing structure that reflects the quality of the final deliverables versus an upfront hourly rate. Each client is presented with a proposal that outlines the scope of the work and pricing (with no hidden cost) that is predicated on offering the highest quality services at an affordable rate. Our guarantee is to never upsell or offer services that are not required.
