Too often, individuals think consulting is primarily about an ‘expert’ with multiple degrees and prestigious certifications advising high-powered CEOs on a strategy. Yet, in reality, that is far from the truth. Effective consultants have broad experience knowing how to ask the right questions, target objectives, determine strategies and tactics, and develop methodologies to implement a plan and measure its’ effectiveness. They know how to problem-solve, innovate, and pivot when necessary. Sadly, too many companies hire internal and external consultants to solve a problem, only to discover that the consultant is rigid, unimaginative, and sometimes challenging to work with. Sometimes, the problem for which a consultant is hired is NOT the real issue but a symptom or a part of another problem. To reduce this waste, clients and consultants need to understand better what can be accomplished. This bundle covers the essentials of being an effective consultant, including how to assess a situation, clarify expectations, articulate goals, measure success, create effective surveys, write useful reports, and develop products with an innovative and strategic methodology.
