Workshop: Consulting and Organizational Development With For-Profits and Government
When a Consulting Project Fails ...
... it's rarely because the consultant was not enough of an expert in a certain function, for example, in management, marketing, finances or computers. Rather, it's because the consultant was not sufficiently skilled in the consulting process.
Peter Block, in his seminal consulting book, Flaw Consulting, writes, "There is a set of skills that is an essential part of consulting over and above technical expertise and interpersonal skills -- these are consulting skills (Jossey-Bass, 2000, p. 6).
This workshop, which includes follow-on coaching, develops consulting skills.

About the Consultants Development Institute(sm)
This workshop is an initiative of Authenticity Consulting, LLC, to develop more consultants who are more effective in guiding their clients to successfully solve problems and achieve goals in their organizations.
While there are many books and resources about the business of starting and marketing a consulting business, there are few readily accessible resources for learning how to work with clients to solve problems or achieve goals in a project -- and for helping clients to solve those problems for themselves in the future. Usually, resources that do exist are packaged into expensive training programs (for example, as degrees in Organization Development) offered by educational institutions and training centers.
The Institute aims to make resources about consulting more practical and readily accessible to those who are considering the field of consulting and those who have very limited resources from which to develop their skills.
