About the Consultants Mind Blog

Consultants think a bit differently.  Lots of lateral ideas, structured thinking, and clear communication.  This blog attempts to show some of that in a not-too-boring way.

Professionally, I have worked in Fortune 500 and Big 4 consulting firms.  Have enjoyed blogging since April 2012 and look forward to your thoughts, comments, and push back.

I am a bit of a libertarian, but still find this criticism valid.

  1. Hey there, I am currently working on a similar project/blog regarding consulting. I would like to get in touch with you, would you mind dropping me a short eMail at my contact details below?

    Best, Philipp

  2. Hi,
    i would like to exchange some e-mails with you regarding the blog and my activities in consulting are in Poland. Could you please send me your e-mail adress ?

  3. Great Stuff! I have been a fan and voracious consumer of David Maister’s wisdom for a long time now. I was honored to receive a prompt and courteous affirmative email response from him when I asked his permission to adapt and use his Healthcare model from True Professionalism for my use in financial services consulting. (Slides 40 & 42: http://www.slideshare.net/JPNicols/from-transactions-to-relationships-ss?ref=http://jpnicols.com/2013/10/01/transactions-relationships-innovations-next-horizon/)

  4. Excellent blog – I’ve already gained valuable insight, and have only wasted about twenty minutes!! I’m an APD candidate, and have been turned down at the decision with McK and BCG. I’d like to know if we can exchange a couple emails and try to root out my issues. Thanks, and I’ll continue to read… but for now, cancer isn’t going to cure itself. Cheers.

    • Yes, will send you an email separately. As a FYI, I worked at big 4, not big 3. Also, APD is a difficult way to enter consulting. They are looking for niche specialization, not generalists.

  5. Hey!

    I really love your website. I especially love the article about saving face of a client. I’ve also worked as a consultant and I had a boss that used a lot of deadly phrases. Sometimes it was really painful to go into a meeting with him because I knew there will be many unnecessary arguing going on.

    Well, I am thinking of creating a website on a certain topic that is complementary to yours and I would like to get an opinion from someone who already has a lot of experience with this audience online. Could you give me your email to set you several questions? I would be really grateful for such an opportunity.

    Best regards,
    Alen Faljic
