Course description

The Influential Internal Consultant: Building High-Value Partnerships, a 2 Day Program

Internal consultants cannot depend on positional power to make things happen in their organization. And yet, they have an important position that requires the ability to get things done. They must depend on their expertise and relationships within the organization to influence others and have an impact on organizational strategy and tactics.

Barnes & Conti Associates have created The Influential Internal Consultant™ to help internal consultants combine the assets they already possess with the skills in influencing people and the knowledge of how to put all of their assets to work in each stage of the consulting process. After this course participants will have the tools to enrich or create a successful internal consulting practice.
