Final Weeks: Write and Practice Your Own Consulting Future
Assignment: Please read Block's Chapters 13-14
The last few weeks, we'll focus on understanding how to grow your skill stack, and learn exactly what that means. This is the very core of consulting practice, and once you begin this exciting phase of the journey, I don't think you'll want to stop!
We'll discuss how to specifically prepare for success based on your unique, even natural, interests and areas of special endeavor. By now, you know you can make it as an extraordinarily helpful problem solver. The next weeks, we'll review and practice the entire skill set behind organizational advising, and coaching for imporved performance anytime, anywhere, with anyone, as I add to your consulting notebooks.
A consultant noted: As described in the McKinsey Quarterly 2014, Change Leader, Change Thyself, “In our work together with organizations undertaking leadership and cultural transformations, we’ve found that the best way to achieve an organization’s aspirations is to combine efforts that look outward with those that look inward. Linking strategic and systemic intervention to genuine self-discovery and self-development by leaders is a far better path to embracing the vision of the organization and to realizing its business goals.”
