  Skills you Need as a Management Consultant
claudio pizzi, Business Consultant, Argentina, Premium Member
  Hello Mauro. I have detected three essential skills that a consultant should have to do a good job in a company. First. Be clear about the differences between "causes and effects" and be able to make a good diagnosis. Second, be a very good communicator. Third. Develop skills to anticipate problems.
I hope the answer will serve you. Best regards. 21-5-2020

  The Problem and its Solution are Always Owned by the Client
Bernhard Keim, Business Consultant, Germany, Premium Member
  Don't push a solution to the client. Just offer him insights. He, not you is in charge to accept or reject them. Read a good introduction into philosophy and learn proper reasoning. Strongly recommended: Peter Block: "Flawless Consulting" and consultation books by Edgar Schein. Why are these books on process consulting so important? They teach you proper understanding of complex social systems and how to intervene to make change happen. Your future clients don't need a cook who cooks for them, but someone who teaches them cooking. 28-5-2020
