The majority of business consultants are surely good people intending to truly help their clients. But there are many business consultants only interested in selling you their services, not intent on solving your business problem at all.
The not-so-good business consultants want to sell you their services, regardless of whether or not you truly need their service to achieve your business purpose. These consultants don´t define their success by achieving your purpose; they’re merely concerned with selling you more tasks and billing more hours.
What if the business consultants you hired were only driven by your business purpose? What if instead of selling you endless services — tasks upon tasks — they actually solved your problems and were compensated for resolving the business issue that prompeted them to be hired?
Do the consultants you work with exist to actually solve your business problems or do you believe they secretly hope to never address your business purpose and as a result sell you more and more tasks?
