Reviews - What do customers think about Consult Yourself: The Nlp Guide to Being a Management Consultant?
Applied Emotional Intelligence for the Consultant! Jun 8, 2001
I reviewed this book for the 7EQ.com newsletter. Here is what I wrote: Whether you are working as a consultant or are planning to become one, this book is for you! It really covers all aspects of what it means to be a consultant. Maybe that's why this book ended being 375 pages thnk, in stead of the initially announced 250 pages. Carol Harris knows what she is talking about: she has been an independent consultant for the last 15 years and wrote 4 other books. The first and second chapter discusses the kind of competencies and attitudes a consultant needs. Chapters 3 to 6 discuss what is means to set up as an independent consultant, how to promote yourself etc (maybe you conclude from these chapters that you would be better of to be working for one of the consultancy agencies). The rest of the book teaches you skills related to practical aspects of being a consultant, such as self-management, helping other to develop, writing skills, etc. In short in this book you'll find what a consultant needs to demonstrate in order to be successful. Of course, I cant resist mentioning that for other areas of live, my book "7 steps to emotional intelligence" will be complementary!
