About the Program

As organizational restructuring and transition increases at an alarming pace in today’s business environment, employee loyalty in organizations also seems to be on the decline. Together, these two trends are planting the seeds for more and more internal practitioners who try to manage their internal career growth or to establish their own consulting practices. In an effort to gain greater flexibility and freedom though, many skilled practitioners try to strengthen their image internally or consider launching their own consulting practices without completely considering the challenges that await them and therefore are not able to make it on their own. This struggle ultimately causes many good consultants to take down their “shingle” in search of another internal role.


This two-hour workshop helps you explore the key drivers for successfully launching and managing an OD consulting practice. This applies to both internals and externals. You will learn what critical skills are needed to effectively manage and grow your image once established.
In this workshop, participants will review a powerful framework for branding their consulting practices as well as specific techniques they will need to operate and grow their reputations. The program is based on leading business practices as well as the facilitator’s critical lessons learned from being in business for more than 9 years and growing his own multi-million dollar consulting practice – not to mention being named one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc magazine. The workshop focuses on enabling seasoned consultants who excel technically in their primary areas of expertise to become strong solopreneurs who also excel in running their own business operations to ensure they achieve extraordinary results.
