Why do I need a business consulting service?
Businesses often hire Noirwolf Consulting for various reasons, such as improving business strategies, defining growth goals, helping with decision-making, employee engagement, managing labour relations, improving digital communications systems, identifying labour skills gaps, or managing change initiatives.

Noirwolf conducts comprehensive analyses and delivers efficient solutions to aid companies in achieving their goals. We can assist in identifying growth issues, providing market expertise, boosting productivity, transforming business models, recognising new objectives, educating staff, eliminating unproductive business areas, revitalising past opportunities, and influencing decision-makers.

We typically ascertain your objectives and explore growth potential to create a tailored action plan. As we gather information, we may uncover operational flaws and suggest improvements.

Are both remote and onsite consulting services available through your company?
Noirwolf can support clients remotely either from their office or at the client's business, depending on the project scope and location of the company.

What is the typical timeline to start?

Engagement management has five main phases: proposal, kickoff, delivery, closure, and archive. The proposal phase involves a project charter that includes a statement of work with background, scope, approach, and assumptions.

Noirwolf engagements vary in duration and usually last 1 to 6 months, so every new project is another opportunity to address fundamental challenges with our clients, collaborate with colleagues, and learn new skills.

After the first contact, we will begin with an initial introductory consultation to gather requirements for the due diligence phase. We will also prepare an estimate/statement of works. Usually, this process takes around a month but can be adjusted based on the client's readiness and requirements.

How long is the average Noirwolf project?

Noirwolf engagements vary in duration and usually last 1 to 6 months, so every new project is another opportunity to address fundamental challenges with our clients, collaborate with colleagues, and learn new skills.

For instance, the high-level Organisation Design (OD) employs a three-step process to determine the organisation's needs, develop a plan to tackle those needs, and then commit to the resulting solution.
Generally, the life cycle of a consulting project will differ depending on the scope of work. However, it can be categorised into three phases: Analyse, Plan, and Execute.

  1. ANALYSE includes an initial consultation to assess requirements and explore options to solve the presented issue. Follow-up meetings may be scheduled to analyse needs and possible solutions comprehensively.
  2. PLAN includes designing and developing a customised solution that aligns with the needs of the organisation, team, or individual.
  3. EXECUTE includes operationalising the solution, whether system-wide, team-based, or for an individual. The implementation contains maximising results for sustainability through evaluation and continuous improvement.

Before diving into what this means, it's important to note that the typical length of consulting and coaching engagements will vary. For instance, a change initiative may look like:

  • Due Diligence – 2-4 weeks
  • Strategy – 1-3 months
  • Implementation – 3-12 months
  • Review - Ongoing
What information do you need from me to get started with my project?

We will require your contact details and information about your project scope to start your project. The initial consultation call will help to gather these requirements, and the information will be provided within the formal proposal.

During our initial call, we typically ask clients various questions to understand their needs and goals better. These include inquiries such as:

  • What are your short-term and long-term goals?
  • What sets your business apart from competitors?
  • Who is involved in decision-making for this project?
  • What is prompting you to seek out a consultant?
  • What challenges are you currently facing with this project?
  • Have you already attempted any solutions?
  • Could you describe your target customer?
  • Is your organisation ready and willing to make changes?
  • How does this project align with your overall organisational objectives?
  • What specific outcomes do you hope to achieve?
  • When would you like to schedule a follow-up meeting to discuss our plan?

We can better tailor our approach to meet your unique needs and objectives by asking these questions and gathering information.

Could you provide me with information on the various project options and pricing?

Businesses often hire Noirwolf Consulting for multiple reasons, such as improving business strategies, defining growth goals, helping with decision-making, employee engagement, managing labour relations, improving digital communications systems, identifying labour skills gaps, or managing change initiatives. It's essential to consider the factors influencing the cost of hiring skilled management consultants, as they offer a wide range of services. These factors include the size of the consulting company, project complexity, expected time investment, number and level of consultants, consultant expertise required, project location, size of the client's business, and client's preparedness.

 

At Noirwolf Consulting, we believe in providing personalised pricing and project costs that cater to each client's specific requirements. This is because the scope of work can vary on several factors, including the business type, location, project stage, deliverables, and expected ROI.

Which countries do you provide support for clients and project work?

What's the difference between a consultant and a coach?

​​People who offer coaching and consulting services share some similarities but also have some differences. Both types of professionals can provide helpful external expertise to improve a business, but they have different priorities. Coaches empower individuals and teams to grow and develop, while consultants focus on solving specific business problems. Coaches prioritise personal growth, while consultants assist with decision-making, problem-solving, and data analysis. Coaches typically work with individuals or groups for extended periods, while consultants usually work on specific projects. Selecting the right coach or consultant is essential for success in your business.

Can you provide information on how your services meet the specific needs of companies?

Our company provides customised solutions tailored to meet each client's unique requirements. At Noirwolf, we place a high value on collaboration and active participation from both parties. Our expert consultants are not merely visitors but an integral part of your team. You can expect a seamless partnership with Noirwolf that delivers results.

As an entrepreneur and small business owner, you may encounter various obstacles. These may include drawing in new customers, enhancing brand awareness, establishing an email list, producing leads, providing outstanding customer service, hiring skilled staff, streamlining processes/ workflow, and crafting a reliable financial strategy.

Noirwolf can help you prioritise your workload and achieve your goals.

Let's work together to create solutions to meet your goals.

Additionally, Noirwolf is open to signing confidentiality agreements and NDAs to ensure the security of your information. Our terms and conditions are standard for a professional services firm.

Do you offer a free consultation?

Certainly! We are eager to comprehend your present circumstances and aspirations. A short conversation can provide valuable insight, including pertinent information about our consultancy services and ensure we are a good fit for each other. This will be a casual conversation to see if we are compatible, not a sales pitch.

 

Kindly contact us to arrange a complimentary 30-minute introductory call. 

 

The typical process looks like this:

Step 1: Please complete the contact form or via email/ phone. We want to hear from you, so tell us about yourself and your needs. 

Step 2: We will schedule an introductory call together.

How do you price your services?

We typically determine the cost of our services using commonly used pricing methods in the industry. These methods include hourly rates, fixed fees, retainer packages, and value-based pricing.

For instance, a client seeking HR consulting to assist with a team evaluation that involves assessing organisational structures, job roles, pay and benefits, as well as performance reviews, over twelve months is a distinct project from someone who needs coaching support over six months to start a new business or apply for a job.

Will you sign a confidentiality agreement or an NDA?
Yes, Noirwolf is happy to sign an NDA. Please provide your company details and the NDA form to sign as part of your onboarding activities.
As an entrepreneur with multiple businesses, is it possible for me to request ad-hoc coaching and consulting support?
Of course, we will follow the standard engagement process. First, we will complete an introductory call, and then we can agree on an action plan and support program that suits your needs.

I am interested in starting my own business. Would you be able to assist me in getting started?

Starting a business can be overwhelming, so Noirwolf provides consulting, mentoring, and coaching services to help startups and aspiring entrepreneurs. Our services include assistance with creating a business plan, developing a strategy, conducting market research and competitor analysis, devising a marketing strategy, and determining the optimal organisational structure for your company.

Do I need a life coach or therapy?

The profession of coaching is relatively new and stands on its own. At Noirwolf, we offer executive and career coaching services; some refer to this as life coaching or leadership coaching. Many individuals seek out coaching to optimise their time management skills. Our coaching approach helps clients become more effective and productive in all aspects of their lives, such as their professional or personal endeavours. Additionally, suppose you're looking for someone impartial to hold you accountable for reaching your objectives. In that case, a leadership coach is an excellent option. By establishing goals, milestones, and a clear path to success, our neutral third-party approach can help you stay accountable and motivated.

The profession of therapy requires a license, whereas life coaching does not. However, life coaches can earn accreditation from reputable organisations such as AC, EMCC, and ICF and complete training programs. Therapy is typically a long-term commitment, with some individuals attending for years or even their entire lives. The main difference between therapists and life coaches is that coaches eventually equip their clients with the skills and strategies to become their coaches. It's important to note that life coaching is not designed to be a permanent solution.

Did you know you can access talking therapies for free through the NHS? You don't need a referral from a GP to refer yourself to an NHS talking therapies service. Alternatively, your GP can guide you. You can receive help in person, through video, over the phone, or as an online course.
