For many consultants, a client engagement can feel like tiptoeing through a minefield. Especially early in engagements, with new clients, we might find ourselves in unknown territory, with few indicators of which way to go, and little, visible, client-side support. Some of us tread gently, hoping not to set anything (or anyone) off. Some of us charge around, proverbial bulls in china shops, with little regard for long term consequences of our actions as long as we deliver the results defined in the agreement. There must be better way to more effectively work towards results without feeling like you’re in a war zone. Relationship management matters and it starts before you even hit the ground. This webinar will explore how you can start your project off on the right foot and begin delivering value as a trusted advisor rather than a hired gun.
