Typically, if we bring in a new consultant or team, it’s to support an existing project or environment, to add credibility to a project, or equally it’s a simple case of execution support.
The nature of our consultancy is that we support our clients with the very best – the top ten per cent of consultants available for their project. Introducing these new teams into a business can be seen as a threat to existing employees.
Rather than encourage rivalry as some businesses undoubtedly do – and where there is unhealthy rivalry, toxicity will follow – we work hard to ensure there is a clear, common objective and vision to any project and that includes understanding the need to bring in any new talent.
Sounds simple, but how do we do this?
