If the consultant is feeling that the client is defensive or very controlling, or doesn’t listen or doesn’t take responsibility, this is important to know. However the consultant feels working with that client, the people inside the client’s organization are going to feel the same way. It is equally important for you to pay close attention to your own feelings during the consultation, particularly during the early stages, and use these as valuable information on how the organization functions and how the client manages.
Summing Up The beliefs outlined here are the foundation for the rest of this book: pay close attention to your own style and your own feelings as important dimensions to the consulting relationship. Skill in consulting is not only skill in providing a program, a process, and procedures that respond to the client’s needs. It’s also your skill in being able to identify and put into words the issues around trust, feelings, responsibility, and your own needs. THE CONSULTANT’S ASSUMPTIONS Any view of what makes for effective consultation relies heavily on the assumptions the consultant has about what makes an effective organization.
The more that any distrust is put into words, the more likely you are to build trust. Your Own Needs The fourth element on the affective side of the consultant-client relationship is that consultants have a right to their own needs from the relationship. It’s easy to fall into a service mentality, in which you see yourself charged with solving the client’s problems and serving the client’s needs—and it’s possible to act in such a way that you, as the consultant, appear not to have any needs. The reality is that you do have needs.
