How to Become an Authority as a Consultant?
Jasmin Mesic, Student (University), Netherlands, Member
I am currently researching the development of a model which maps the process of becoming an authority in some chosen field of expertise (focused on business management).
The model is focused on business/management consultants who wish to further develop their skills with the final goal of becoming a recognized authority in their field.
I was wondering if there are models which touch upon the topic or focus on personal development which might be similar. I am open to suggestions. Any feedback is welcome....Sign up
