Top 10 Reasons to Hire Me as a Consultant

In Uncategorized on March 14, 2011 at 3:57 pm

How can you sound as interesting as possible to potential clients? Recognize the market changes constantly. Always be looking for new ways to help people recognize how you can increase their success and make an effort to brand yourself as the face of your business.

When I first started consulting, I had the privilege of sitting next to the managing partner of Ernst & Young’s  San Francisco office at a wedding. His advice? Clearly identify what you do better than other consultants and then be open to other opportunities that come your way. Key competencies needed? From my perspective, conceptual thinking and vision, then results orientation and initiative to make the vision real.

Here’s the newest list I developed last week to market my business. The Top 10 Reasons to Hire Me as a Consultant are:

  1. I am the expert at how to improve competency-based communication at work.
  2. I will train your employees to recognize when they contribute to your organization’s success and to look for ways to make themselves and your organization more successful.
  3. I will help your managers make better decisions about their people because they get better, more relevant information about each employee’s performance directly from employees.
  4. I teach managers to advocate for their teams and employees to advocate for themselves in competency-based organizations.
  5. I wrote the first books teaching people to write better competency-based accomplishment statements on their performance reviews and development plans.
  6. I train executives, managers and professionals to give better presentations and improve their performance.
  7. I am very good at training scientists and engineers to present more professionally – and I have  statistics proving presentation skills significantly improved in these workshops.
  8. I am very fun to work with, try to make my clients’ lives easier, and listen to my clients.
  9. I am a strong speaker, trainer and writer.
  10. I am happy to travel to work with you and love getting out of Houston!

In marketing materials, I am using third person language, not the word “I” as much. Please let me know if you know people who should see this list!
