I am an internal consultant but just recently learned I do not fully grasp what consulting is.
I feel I am an effective communicator, I can train, I have a good understanding how to implement and sustain Lean improvements, and I can help people solve problems. I was under the impression that all of these skills added together to equal consulting. I was wrong.
I have been pressing in with my coworkers to get coaching on what consulting skills are and I am reading Peter Block’s “Flawless Consulting“. I also have another book someone lent me as well.
You will see some of my reflections as I get a deeper understanding of consulting. I welcome your comments about consulting or suggestions for blogs/articles/books to further help me understand.
