Collaborating with Other Consultants

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Updated: Friday, August 30, 2013
Like other consultants, I sometimes hit a feast/famine cycle, and lack the expertise to take on some new work I encounter. How do other consultants handle this?

You are not alone if you encounter these challenges. In addition, some consultants find it a bit lonely doing everything by themselves. Because of this, many consultants work with other consultants.

There are several ways to collaborate with other consultants:

  • Refer other consultants, especially if it's work you no longer perform or dislike doing.
  • Do a joint project with another consultant. However, make sure you:
    • take good care of the other consultant
    • work as equal peers vs. boss/subordinate
    • have styles and values that compliment vs. conflict
  • Create a consulting partnership.

TIP:If you are considering working with other consultants, consider the IMC USA virtual meeting, Forming Consulting Alliances on Friday, April 19th.
It's FREE to IMC Members and $19 for non-Members.
