Frequently Asked Questions
Our mission is to coach and support grounded, engaged and connected leaders who want to be a force for good. A Consilio client has three ingredients:
- Our clients lead people. They come to us in many shapes, states and sizes. CEOs with many employees, small business owners who lead a few freelancers, or professionals who want to learn how to lead people. If you are leading or want to lead, Consilio fits you.
- Our clients are ready to change. Our mission is to help leaders become grounded, engaged and connected. If you come with an open mind, are willing to listen to the lessons and do the work, Consilio fits you.
- Our clients add to their community. A force for good is what we want leaders to be. If you are using your leadership powers to affect positive change in your community, Consilio fits you.
Consilio has business coaches on staff, which are quite different from business consultants. A business consultant offers you analysis and recommendations. A business coach partners with you on an ongoing basis to figure things out and get things done.

We work to keep a neat boundary on these engagements so they don’t veer into the land of dependence that may lead to lower performance, which is never our goal.
