Eight Tips on How to Choose a Consultant

Do your homework.

Do what you can to identify the problems. Talk with your management team and employees.

Conduct fact-finding conversations with managers. Be sure these conversations are private. If you assure someone that a conversation is confidential, be sure you can keep that promise.

Try an anonymous written survey if you find that employees are unwilling to point fingers. Just be sure it is truly anonymous.

Set a reasonable budget for paying the consultant and for implementing solutions. An expensive idea that will solve all your problems isn’t much good if you can’t afford it.
