Consultancy Skills Programme Enables Managers to Act as Consultants within their own Organisations

The Management Centre (=mc) – a leading training and consultancy provider for not-for-profit organisations – is running the annual Consultancy Skills Programme from 22-26 February 2010 in London. The 5-day course is designed to enable managers to act as consultants within their own department or organisation or when managing external organisations. It is also ideal for anyone considering a career as a consultant.

The Consultancy Skills Programme equips managers with the skills necessary to take a step back from the organisation, recognise challenges and opportunities, make objective decisions about the way forward and, most importantly, to gain support from colleagues. Course modules cover the nine disciplines essential for successful consultancy, they are:

• Consultancy methodology

• Innovation

• Strategy

• Change

• Communication

• Problem solving

• Organisational culture

• Structure

• Coaching

Bernard Ross, Director of The Management Centre and Trainer of the Consultancy Skills Programme, says:

“Managers often report how hard it is to see the direction they should take as they are too close to the organisation – they can’t see the wood through the trees. This programme is designed to enable them to tackle exactly this challenge – to be able to take a step back, look at the issue objectively and make an informed, independent decision. Consultancy skills are a real benefit for those working in-house or considering a profession as a consultant.”
