New Ways Of Consulting: how to consult in a world of new ways of working and managing.

The needs and expectations are changing and we have been changing our consulting to match.
This *live interactive* online course is a mix of high level principles and our practical experiences at Teal Unicorn. Honouring the new ways, the course experiments, exploring the online training space to find better ways of learning.

Strictly speaking, many of the “new” ideas about work aren’t new – some date back a century – but there is undoubtedly a new wave of thinking changing how we work and live in the 21st Century, across the domains of humanity, complexity, and agility, and accelerated by the current world crisis.  It changed – and is still changing – how we consult at Teal Unicorn.  We want to share what we have learned.

This course will benefit anybody working in a consultative role on how to manage and/or work, on any kind of work in any type of organisation, to allow you to better meet your clients’ needs and expectations in our rapidly changing societies. The course is also useful for anyone engaging consultants, to understand how you can adjust your expectations and requirements of them.

You will gain:

  • better understanding of what you believe and how you work.
  • opportunities to challenge and improve your own approaches to consulting.
  • more perspectives on what is happening to our work.
  • more connections to assist you.

We will consider:

  • the nature of consulting and what constitutes good consulting.
  • the new society emerging, the new ways of working and managing, and the challenges they present to consulting.
  • how we respond: better ways of consulting arising from the new thinking.
  • tips and techniques that Teal Unicorn have learned.
  • how to improve ourselves and our clients.
  • where the networks and the knowledge are.
