Here is our quarterly directive to our Coaching and OD vendors.
As per this directive, we may hire either coaches, or consultants. Please apply accordingly.
A) What is a coach and what is a consultant?
- A coach deals with individuals. He/she is positive. He sets goals. Life is beautiful.
- A consultant deals with irrelevant issues like processes, alignment and undermining HR.He/she sees problems everywhere.
- A coach studied coaching, and perhaps carpentry and flower arrangement.
- Consultants studied psychology, sociology and even community organizing. Some even studied organizational behaviour, which is absurd. Organizations roll profit, for heaven sake. They do not behave!
- Coaches use words like "sustainable and agile" all the time. They stopped using the words "TQM and re engineering."
- Consultants use fewer buzzwords, because many of them have no work. However, consultants use the term big data but few know what it means.
- HR uses the words "coach" and "consultant" consistently. HR detests both professions, as it were. Because HR business partnership provides answers for all needs.
- Coaches and consultants use whichever term they need to, for heaven sake.
- Coaches spell the work censor, as in "satire should be censored as part of HR police-Y."
- Consultants claim that they are sensors, while HR is looking for censors, for heaven sake.
Our coaching/consulting fee is as follows: you will pay us $50 USD per each tender you submit, in the framework of HR as a business, partner.
Services we recruit are pro bono, which is not French.
