What Every Consultant Needs to Know
With Chris Alexander, Founder,
Synergy Executive Education
Many consultants make the mistake of overlooking the power of the unwritten and established "ways of doing things" within organizations. As a result, they find themselves frustrated by non-compliance, circling the wagons, slow decision making, and even early termination of contract.
People buy from people, so "When in Rome . . . do as the Romans do." You may just discover that different is not wrong. By honing your awareness and perceptiveness of organizational culture, you will develop greater interpersonal skills and more loyal clients. Understanding culture and its impact and influence on decision making are of vital importance to any consulting relationship.
Join us on Thursday, June 9, at our IMC Orange County breakfast meeting to learn about the ins and outs of corporate culture from an expert in the field, Chris Alexander. His presentation topics will include:
- What is a corporate culture?
- Different types of corporate culture, and how these can affect your work as a consultant.
- Five specific steps you can take to diagnose corporate culture on your very first day.
- Seven ways to use corporate culture to become more effective as a consultant.
- And a lot more...
Expect Chris' presentation to be eye opening from a professional who has written books about change management and people-centered change. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss specific situations. This will be a great meeting for consultants in all specialties.
