Exceptional Consulting Skills 

Why Attend?

Are you wondering why you just connect with some clients, and struggle with others?  Have you ever started a consulting engagement, only to find out the client needs something different after you’ve already invested time and energy in ramping up?  And what about budgeting hours, determining prices, and smartly managing the amount of time you spend writing proposals, status reports and other administrative activities? 

 If you’ve asked yourself anyone one of these questions, you’ll want to join us for our workshop:  Exceptional Consulting Skills. Facilitated by Sally Daniel and Karen Travis, with more than 55 years of consulting experience, this workshop will help internal and external consultants become more effective, allowing you to enjoy your work more, and stress less!  Focus groups will include: new consultants, those considering a consulting career, and seasoned consultants who want to take their experience to the next level.  As we get closer to the date, we’ll survey those enrolled for additional input to make the most of our time together. 

 Workshop Objectives:

  • Understand your personal style and leverage your type to build stronger client relationships
  • Review and Consider Various Consulting Models to Solve Problems and Maximize Opportunities
  • Identify Tips & Techniques to Avoid Common Consulting Traps and Administrative Headaches
  • Classify appropriate roles and expectations for the consultant and the client
  • Learn appropriate techniques for handling difficult client conversations

Workshop Details:
