As business structures change, HR Professionals and other specialists are required to perform an internal consultancy role. This Strategic Axis Internal Consultancy Skills at Work training course covers the latest in accurate and informative material about Internal Consultancy; which, is becoming a fast-growing trend in successful organizations worldwide.
An internal consultant is not the same as an external consultant and requires specific skills in communication, coaching, and analysis.
Typically, the internal consultant is drawn from one of the teams of professional service providers where there is a history of supporting internal customers with specific problems.
One of the critical challenges facing the internal consultant is to influence cultural change.
Being part of the organization brings both advantages and disadvantages: while having a keen understanding of prevailing cultural norms, internal agents may also be ‘blind’ to them.
With often only their power and influence as tools, internal consultants may also fail to account for the extent to which they contribute to sustaining the culture, which they hope to change. High self- awareness appears to be a vital requirement of an active internal consultant.
If you need to build relationships with people in your organization, understand their business needs and wants, present business solutions, influence them and develop their ownership and commitment to take action, then you are operating in an internal consulting role.
Learn how to boost your skills as an internal consultant to have greater impact and make better use of your specialist or technical knowledge.
