by Jose Herrera

The challenges we face in business consulting are many—most especially if we find ourselves leading or managing a team. In this original work, veteran consultant Jose Herrera follows up his first book, The Art of Consulting, by focusing on the particular trials that managers or leaders of consulting teams face—and how best to overcome them. This practical, tightly organized guidebook delivers insightful advice on a range of issues, including how best to . . .

• Make the best use of technology for your group’s projects

• Help develop your team members’ personal brands

• Foster a culture of trust and self-responsibility on your team

• Resolve any conflicts that might arise between team members

• And much more!

Filled with helpful guidelines and anchored by an ongoing semi-fictional case study based on the author’s experiences, readers will find a wealth of helpful, practicable techniques for consulting with teams here, which are sure to bring them to reflect on their experiences in a new light. Whether you’re a seasoned manager of a consulting team or are hoping to occupy your first position of leadership on a project someday soon, The Art of Consulting with Teams is a must-read.

"The ability to build and maintain high performing teams is critical to an organization’s success, especially with today’s rapid innovation cycles. But doing so is complex, with many factors to consider, especially when the teams are comprised of a mix of consultants and organizational resources. Jose does a fantastic job guiding the reader through this maze of considerations. His many years of practical expertise is evident in the material, and the content is clear and concise while avoiding the buzzwords that typically appear on this subject. From the challenges of working with different personalities, to the mechanics of executing effectively as a consultant in a team setting, Jose’s real-world examples and common-sense approach apply to any team, regardless of industry. Follow his guidelines, and you are sure to ramp upyour ability to work with and lead teams of various forms. Love the travel stories as well!"
