There are a lot of jokes about consultants, mostly identifying them (us?) as "people you pay to tell you what you already know".
But I think this is what - at its core - what consultants do: to empower and inspire you to do what to do.
In my job, I can only use numbers and gathered data, analyzed and scrutinized against a specific problem that both clients and I have uncovered as the "root problem". I use these numbers and data in order to create potential options for clients, identifying the opportunities and the risks associated with each option.
The decision remains with the client - in terms of which action to take and whether to implement the decision with the required rigor.
We can claim to be experts of your business - but at the end of the day, it is your business. You are the stakeholder. We can help you make decisions - and implement those decisions. But we can't make those decisions for you.
At the end of the day, you as the client will have to take the leap.
