Gordon Sheppard – Founder
"Business Expert Solutions inspires..."
The business leaders I work with are busy and often feel overwhelmed. I inspire them by helping them remember what is important in their lives and their business, so they can focus and take positive action.
Some of the best feedback I get from business leaders includes:
- I’m exercising again!
- Now there is a lot more laughter in the hallways around this office
- I understand that I don’t have to get into a fight with my staff, but instead I can walk away, calm down and figure out how to make the best of a situation at a later time
"...and empowers leaders..."
Business leaders make decisions based on what they know.
But they can’t know everything.
My unique ability is to help leaders rapidly diagnose the issue, and then provide them with multiple perspectives and options to choose from.
This approach helps them to confirm that what they are doing is right, or to consider other possibilities. It also helps them to grow more confident in their decision-making.
I also empower leaders by getting them to examine their current strategy, leadership approach, and business processes, so we can figure out how to improve them.
For example, if they don’t have a strategy, I help them build one. Or if they have blind spots as a leader, then I hold up the mirror and recommend how they can improve.
And when I don’t have the answers I bring in highly qualified business experts who do (including Accountants, Human Resources Experts, Legal Advisors, Recruiters, Safety Specialists and more).
"...to take action..."
I have no interest in delivering consulting reports that nobody reads.
I am interested in providing information and advice that helps my clients to take action.
For example, one of my proudest moments as a consultant happened when I watched an emerging leader deliver the strategic plan to his entire company (and just months before I got involved that the strategic plan didn’t even exist!).
"...to positively transform themselves..."
Leadership starts with who you are and what you do.
But too often leaders are focussed on negative behaviours that limit their ability to move their company forward.
That’s where I come in.
Because I’m ‘not in the family’ I can say what needs to be said to help leaders positively change their perspective and their behaviour.
So whether it’s telling someone that their addiction is affecting their work, or helping a leader to gain new communication skills, I can help them move forward.
"...and their organizations..."
I believe that if your whole organization is strong, then everybody wins.
So, I have honed my craft to be the best organizational consultant and leadership coach that I can be.
I am like Yoda on the shoulder of the leader, guiding them to find the right tools, resources, and inspiration to help them grow their business.
Because when a leader can transform themselves and their team, then they can positively impact their entire organization, their customers, and their community…which means we all win!
"...by providing impactful insights, honest coaching and strategic consulting solutions..."
It’s why I do what I do.
I always say that if you spend an hour with me I’ll help you find at least one ‘aha’ moment that will make a positive difference in your life and your business.
During an entire engagement… not only will I help you learn about yourself and what you need to do to move your business forward successfully, but I’ll also help you develop a repeatable strategic approach so you can do it over and over again.
"...from industry experts."
Business is a team sport.
I always recommend that leaders get input from a variety of experts so they can then make the best possible decisions.
That is why I built the Ask A Business Expert community (www.askabusinessexpert.com). Because when I don’t have the answer, then I want to make sure that you can find a reputable business expert who does.
Now that you understand our value proposition I look forward to hearing from you!
Even if you don’t reach out, I do hope that you take action to grow yourself and your business.
