Our Strategic Partners

Swan Mountain Consulting Group firmly believes that consultants shouldn’t try to be all things to all people.  It takes a self confident and perhaps non desperate consultant to openly admit when they don’t possess the skill set to perform a project.  Yet remarkably consultants take on projects out of their realm of experience and capacity all the time because they need the work or they believe it will open doors for additional work down the road.  Swan Mountain Consulting Group refuses to play that game.  If we believe the project is beyond our skill set and/or capacity, then we will work with the client to find the resources better suited to serve them.

Another key aspect of any professional service work is the ability for the various disciplines to get along and compliment each other.  But too often, a turf war develops where each adviser or consultant is undermining or contradicting the other.  The unfortunate client is left wondering who to believe.  This becomes crucial in projects such as buy/sells or acquisitions.  Swan Mountain Consulting Group has formed an alliance of professional service firm relationships to approach certain projects as a team.  Having all the professionals rowing in the same direction is important and ultimately saves clients money.  We also use our relationships to add to our work capacity creating our virtual workforce.

Finally, the list of our partners and strategic alliances forms our best recommendation for professional assistance and expertise for clients and prospects seeking outdoor recreation industry experienced people to work with.

The Center for Character-based Leadership – Lila Lewey

Character-based leadership takes you right into the heart of the matter, challenging you to do the daily character work that allows you and your organization to hold and honor the legitimate, yet often competing, pulls of your core constituencies. With character-based leadership, your organization has a road map to create an energetic alignment between your core constituencies, your strategic vision, and your organization’s structure and systems. Character is the “missing link” in leadership and organizational development. Character provides the necessary container to hold the tension inherent in creating change. We make character work an everyday choice–bringing it down to the daily practices that sustain true leadership.
