How Consultants Can Thrive in the Face of Adversity
Adversity is a normal part of consulting work. Bill Singer knows that the success or failure of our consulting practices often hinges on the way we perceive and respond to challenges posed by common setbacks: unreasonable client demands, failed communications, scope creep, collections issues, and constant time pressures.
And the challenges we face aren’t just those specific to consulting. We’ve got to pay attention to the larger world around us, and today it’s a VUCA world— volatile, unpredictable, chaotic, and ambiguous. That makes resilience a key skill to employ when you face inevitable obstacles.
Participants in Bill’s workshop will learn to identify early warning signs as well as tools and techniques to bounce back from adversity quickly and to persist with confidence and energy.
The key is to learn how to cultivate a mindset that makes you unstoppable. Bill can show you how.
If you attend this meeting, you will:
- Gain an awareness of the mechanisms that can derail our focus and effectiveness
- Understand why old habits of thoughts and beliefs can undermine our ability to handle adversity effectively
- Learn tools and techniques to enhance resilience when facing inevitable setbacks
