  • Initiatives are worked on collaboratively with client input and involvement so that goals and objectives are met each time

How does ZAHN Consulting, LLC determine project fees?

  • Unlike many other consulting firms or professional services firms, ZAHN Consulting, LLC charges a project fee based on the value of the project and does not develop fees based on days worked, number of participants trained, or distance traveled. Our pricing is determined by the worth of the intervention and does not reward slow work, stacking classes full of uninterested participants, or other ways of padding the costs.

  • Training in both classroom and self-paced methods

  • Consulting and assessment on organizational structure, strategies, planning, skills, etc.

Questions to Ask Yourself

How you asked a colleague or subordinate, “what do you need from me?

Our own biases and perspectives often cloud our understanding of what others may want or need from us. We believe that others think, feel, and desire the same things that we do and so we often seek to provide what we ourselves want. That might be an increase or a decrease in oversight, it might mean more or less scheduled communication, or maybe just an occasional pat on the back for a job well-done.

By assuming that others think, react, desire the same things that we ourselves do, we miss a crucial part of being a Manager. The role is focused on developing others and so we must identify and recognize what each employee or subordinate would value from us and provide that, and not what we ourselves would seek if we were the employee.
