Seeking an Objective Position
A fresh perspective. To get the best out of a consultant, business leaders should actively invite challenges to provoke them to consider all aspects of a problem or solution before making a decision. A good consultant should not be afraid to challenge, and their unique position means they can do so without the fear of reprisals that employees might have from questioning management decisions. Fostering an open and honest relationship with your consultant is therefore vital, particularly for example when developing a turnaround strategy for a business in decline.
