I have already taken a business program or have an existing business. Can I gain access to the GURU team, without taking Roadmap Step 1 of the Program?
Yes, but only if you have the proper requirements and pre-requisites in place first. Many people have “created a business plan” but have not put much of that plan into action, which can mean that important pieces get missed. What we know to be true is that your total business is only as strong as the weakest link. We recommend that if you want to work with one of our GURUs, that you contact us at info@globalalignmentcoaching to learn what each GURU proactively needs in place in order to begin a project. Once you complete those pre-requisites, it will really help to streamline projects, keep fees down and minimize time spent with each GURU. Our aim is to keep things organized, streamlined and to be able to keep all of your costs at a minimum. If you need help completing the pre-requisites, you may just book a one-on-one session with a coach/mentor.
Can I meet and talk to a GURU about their services, and get a quote prior to deciding if I want to hire them?
Absolutely yes! We actually request that you have an initial meeting with each GURU first. This is a free consultation in order to review their methods of working, and allows you to get an estimated cost for any project you want to do. This way, you can understand exactly what you get, how you will work together, and what makes their services stand out from other consultants. Learning this process will help you to hire consultants in future, as you learn to identify which consultants are truly professionals, and which you may prefer to pass on.
What if I only want to hire one or two of the GURUs on the Global Alignment team, or if I want to work with someone else independent of your team?
This will not be a problem at all! Our GURU team provides “optional” services and you can choose all of their services or just the ones you need. Our GURU team was created because in our early years, we realized practitioners were really overpaying for services, and were often receiving a poor quality service because they were inexperienced with hiring consultants. For this reason, we built our own team and trained them to work specifically with the Mental Health and Wellness industry in mind. About 90% of our clients use our GURU team to help them build their business, and we´ve received outstanding feedback regarding their services.
What if I want to use a different independent consultant to help me with my logo, business card, financial/tax, services or my website? Is that ok?
Absolutely, that´s fine. What we do encourage you to do is make sure you understand what services you are getting. In the modules we will teach you how to identify quality consulting services and the kinds of questions to ask. Your business will only be as professional as the tools you have in place. What we often see is practitioners cutting corners to save money or time, that inadvertently end up with unprofessional results or or having to do projects twice.
How do I work with a Consulting GURU?
You will be introduced to the GURU team as you progress though each module. Each module consists of assignments that help you prepare to work with a specific GURU team member. All work with the GURUs is done via free online video technology (i.e. Skype) or by phone – whichever is preferred. That way, you have an expert team at your disposal, no matter where you are on the globe!
