If you really break down what you are looking for in a consultant, it is someone who can listen well, who can correctly evaluate your situation, who can develop a plan that makes sense, execute on that plan, who can take all of the information and knowledge gathered and form it into ideas that capture their essence, communicate those ideas effectively and then deliver an end product that is useful to the organization or the community it serves.
In my experience, it is easy to find people who can do some of these things, and extraordinary to find someone, like Karen, who can do them all. She is the real deal. And excellent to work with.
