When Your Advisers Hands Are Tied
Advisers recommend Envisian to their their clients for a variety of reasons. One reason may not be apparent. Advisers have limitations as to what they can do to help resolve situations. Conflicts, ethical constraints and compliance issues often prevent advisers from actions such as meeting with parties other than their clients.
In addition, leaders are frequently in great need of strategic counsel and support during critical situations.
Because we don’t have unique skills and are not constrained the way other advisers are, we can do things advisers cannot, including talking to all the parties, supplementing internal teams with specialized skills and resources, creating new options and potential outcomes and avoiding problems that others may not know about. And we are comfortable crossing lines between disciplines and operating areas.
There one more important difference with Envisian. We bring two kinds of experience: first, hands-on, proven experience spanning decades; and second, extensive knowledge of best practices and case histories from experts in the field gained through teaching and working with hundreds of top executives.
If you are facing a critical situation and would like to discuss it, call Carl Francis at 610.640.4600 ex 1 or email him at CFrancis@Envisian.com.
Here is one piece of advice we often give to advisers to pass on to their clients:
Don't waste critical time. Get solid input on options and timelines FIRST, not later. You limit your options if you fail to use available time well from the start. Remember, the outcome you want takes time.
