In this online course, you will learn
Sure, your client needs you to solve a business problem ... but it might not be the one they’re openly sharing with you. Savvy consultants know how to dig in deep, uncover the hidden problems and avoid political landmines. Most of the time, it’s the hidden problems that really matter.
Importance of the Interview
One of my favorite questions to ask people as an interviewer is this one: “Tell me about your proudest career achievement.”
“It’s a little disheartening when a consultant gets paid more than you … but you have to show them how to do their job.” - Brent (full-time employee at one of my client sites)
