Consultant vs Coach
Many people get confused by the role of a consultant versus a coach. Typically, a consultant is a person who just gives professional or expert advice without any involvement in the solution. They spot and identify problems. .
While a coach connotes terms like teacher, mentor, trainer and developer. Both roles bring different, yet important, value to companies and individuals. Max Business Profits blends the best of business coaching and consulting to meet the specific needs of our clients.
I prefer the term Advisor…..a hybrid of both Consulting and Coaching. In short, Find the Problem -Fix the Problem!
