I enjoy consulting with attorneys. It involves learning about your questions; then using my expertise to provide an answer or two! The fact is consulting work involves extraordinary amounts of mental processing. Let me tell you, my brain gets a lot of action and yes, I work out a lot physically, too!
I don’t know about your specific style of learning or pattern of thinking is (give me time!), but for me, when I accept a case assignment, I don’t want to feel rushed about researching and finding solid answers to good questions. No, I meant to write great questions, those formed to help you with answering your client’s difficult problems, surrounding certain situations, while considering all necessary detail.
In my eyes, “problems” are opportunities in disguise. Something “thinks” it needs a solution. The thinking could be well thought through or it could be downright faulty, and that’s why education becomes a consulting strategy. A good way to look at a problem is to compare it against an opposing problem and ask, which “opportunity” presents first? Will there be an order that makes sense? Is it really a problem or just defined as one?
For every problem under the sun, there is a solution or there is none. If there be one, think til you find it. If there be none, then never mind it!” ~ LeGrand Richards
My problem solving approach develops as the research is gathered relevant to the situation. How a situation is defined is just as important in the problem equation, considering virtually every situation can be defined in more than one way. Because of this fact, tremendous opportunity to educate becomes available, and negatives turn into positives resulting in the implication of how one feels and acts toward the situation!
I find that pulling too quickly for an answer or a fact won’t turn up the best results. Pulling carefully yet relentlessly on the stem/root system will produce reliable, intact, organic results to share with others. Through testimony, I can educate others on how to understand the specific facts I gathered and why they are important to this case, facilitating the information and helping them to “figure out” their own solution.
Thanks (as Eeoyre says) for thinking of me! Please contact me to get me involved early in the proceedings. Do so before you plant any seed, and I’ll help with preparing and weeding the ground, the hard part of the action! Even if you only need a file review, I can offer recommendations. And, we’d be better off to a good start!
I believe it’s always healthy to think of the humor in most situations. Truly, our emotions will benefit. Contact me at 515-282-7753 to discuss your case needs, and learn about my consulting style and policies. Again, thanks for thinking of me and for reading!
My professional rehabilitation counseling practice is focused on helping people participate in the world around them, particularly in their own world of work.
