Consulting, whether internal or external, always involves facilitating change: technical, organizational, or behavioral. As an internal consultant, you can’t depend on positional power to make things happen in your organization. Your impact on individual choices and behavior or on organizational strategy, tactics, and decisions is based on your expertise, your relationships, and your skills for influencing others. As an internal consultant, you must walk a fine line between your role as an insider, understanding the culture and the business, and your value as an outsider with a more objective view and broad knowledge. The Influential Internal Consultant ™ helps you to combine these assets with a sophisticated set of influence behaviors and the know-how to put them to work at each phase of the consulting process.
This two-day workshop is based on the book, Consulting on the Inside: A Practical Guide for Internal Consultants© by Beverly Scott and B.
