What kind of consultant do you want to hire? Think about this!
What is a consultant?
What’s the role of a consultant?
Here’s what I think a consultant is (and does):
Change agent. Teacher. Personal counselor. Trusted advisor. Truth teller.
Brutal truth teller telling brutal truths. (Michael Campbell used the phrase “brutal truths”. I like it!)
Hey consultants, read this great book: The Trusted Advisor
Are we consultants willing and able to take the risks to be this kind of consultant? Do we even want to be this kind of consultant?
