At first glance, some may say that Professional Consulting does not seem to fit
in the genre of Towering Fir’s Spiritual Exploration and Death Discovery; I beg
to differ. Just like how a person has a body, mind, and soul, so does an
organization. The Professional Consulting aspect of Towering Fir is the same
philosophy applied, but to a larger organism that too is a living, breathing
entity. Without direction, moderation, periodic cleansing, reflection, and fine
tuning, even an organization can wither or die. And in some cases, there may be
policies or procedures that need to die in order to make room for that which is
where a company can excel. At Towering Fir, we honor the individual as well as
In today’s competitive environment, it is becoming even more critical to reduce expenses,
reduce errors, reduce waste, reduce time, increase profitability and increase efficiency.
Using the 6 Sigma framework, I can evaluate current processes and make recommendations
for improvements, while ensuring the support of the employees performing the tasks. Based
on management approval, I work with the employee to implement the recommended solutions,
monitor for effectiveness, and then ensure a complete handoff with appropriate supporting
Strategic Planning / Goal Setting
I have learned that there are no wrong or right decisions, only consequences. And the
consequences of not having a direction or goals to strive towards leaves an organization
in limbo and the feeling of treading water. Without direction, how does one lead? Better
yet, what do the employees follow? Through interactive meetings and with the help of the
SMART goal technique, I can help you create short and long term goals that your
organization can get behind, ultimately moving everyone forward.
Most people are intimidated by numbers, reports and data. They become even more intimidated
when the data comes from multiple sources or they don’t understand what it means. Using
my background in Data Analysis, I can help your organization evaluate the data that is
available, create reports, summarize for the executive team what the data means, and
then help develop a strategy of where to go from here based on the desired outcome.
People like to be told what parameters to work within. Therefore, budgets give employees
a framework that help employees when making decisions. Budgets also help keep an
organization contained so that other goals can be achieved. Through an extensive review
of revenue and expenses, I can help you create a budget to predict the reality of short
and long term viability.
Procedure / Policy Documentation
One of the largest risks to an organization is when an employee leaves, for they take
with them the knowledge of the tasks they were working on; but more importantly, they
take with them the knowledge of how to perform the task. Through an in-depth interview
with employees, I can create step-by-step instructions of how to perform critical tasks.
In addition, I can help create new policies and procedures as well as create training
materials in order to ensure that the critical information is disseminated and then
stored for future reference.
