It wasn't that long ago when I was the client. I was a part of a profit center and a sizable chunk of my annual income depended on my ability to produce revenue.
I recall a particularly challenging year; it was going to take a miracle to make our numbers.
It was a weekly call with my consulting team, a month before the end of the quarter, and I was fairly exercised about what I felt was a lack of intensity from the team. One of my more reliable advisors took it upon himself to "improve my mood" by telling me how many hours he worked for me over the weekend.
"I don't care how long you work," I responded. "Get the job done in 5 seconds for all I care -- just make it happen -- performance is about outcomes, not effort."
I had other pet peeves when it came to consultants:
-- cared more about being the "smartest people in the room" than getting the job done
-- tried to force their business model on me when I knew what I needed was much different
-- took their foot off the pedal when I wasn't sitting in the passenger seat
-- failed to get along with the other outside advisors on the team -- turf battles.
Hill Impact turns the well-founded stereotypes about outside advisors on their head. We are a team purpose-built to deliver meaningful results that improve the bottomline and help clients win, defend, and make an impact.
You will notice the difference in our approach from the outset, not the least of which is the fact that we adapt to our clients, not the other way around. If we believe we can help you succeed, we're not going to try and force you into our model by bs'ing you about "upfront investments" and "lead-times." Furthermore, we guarantee our services: you don't pay if you're not happy -- something that's unheard of in our field.
The differences continue, including streamlined and client-friendly processes such as a simple digital agreement that covers both parties from the outset, online invoicing and bill pay, and a team that brings a good attitude, professionalism, work ethic and competence to all tasks, big and small.
I am very proud of what we have going at Hill Impact: A great team and terrific clients.
We are available 24/7; please call today 844-WIN-HILL so we can discuss how to help you win, defend and make an impact.
