Présentation de l'éditeur

This Third Edition to Peter Block′s Flawless Consulting addresses business changes and new challenges since the second edition was written ten years ago. It tackles the challenges next–generation consultants face, including more guidance on how to ask better questions, dealing with difficult clients, working in an increasingly virtual world, how to cope with complexities in international consulting, case studies, and guidelines on implementation. Also included are illustrative examples and exercises to help you cement the guides offered.

Quatrième de couverture

Praise for the third edition of Flawless Consulting "Consulting at its best is about action and interaction, relationships and results. In a highly readable guide that is both inspirational and practical, Peter Block leads consultant and client together through a proven approach to realize their future." — Samuel R. Strickl and chief financial and administrative officer, Booz Allen Hamilton "Surpasses the high standards of relevance, clarity, and wisdom characteristic of previous versions. . . . Whether one′s consulting experience spans five years or fifty, there is a great deal in this new edition to prompt us to reflect on our own practice and to discuss with colleagues." — Roger Harrison , independent consultant and author of Consultant′s Journey: A Dance of Work and Spirit and The Collected Papers of Roger Harrison "Peter Block has written a masterful third edition of his masterpiece, Flawless Consulting. Important additions to the third edition are the strength–based strategies that many are beginning to use . . . in solving seemingly intractable problems in health care and other industries. They are featured in a new Chapter Twelve and form a common thread that runs through this entire path–breaking book." — Jon C. Lloyd , MD, FACS senior associate, Positive Deviance Initiative; clinical advisor, Plexus Institute "Peter′s masterwork, Flawless Consulting, has been my go–to guide since the first edition. . . . Flawless Consulting is not just a practical, useful, and inviting book for practitioners. It′s all those things, but it′s also a book about some of the most vexing issues we face when consulting to organizations—issues of resistance, truth, doubt, vulnerability, and accountability. If you find yourself giving advice to people making choices, then this book is a must–have for you. Buy it today, use it tomorrow." — Jim Kouzes , award–winning coauthor of the best–selling The Leadership Challenge and The Truth About Leadership , and Dean′s Executive Professor of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University "My company uses this book as our primary guide to consultant skills. Interestingly, our most experienced consultants value the insights from Flawless Consulting the most. It has made a big difference in how we think about and work with clients." — TØnnes Ingebrigtsen , CEO, mnemonic as

Clear, Fun, Profound Guidance to Work 19 avril 2012
Par G. Mesick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I know this is is aimed at consultants, but all of us are consultants, so long as we have to negotiate a work relationship with someone else. And Block shows you how to do this in a clear, engaging way that may have a profound impact on your life.

I have had a copy of this book in all its iterations. I use the current edition in a course I teach. The feedback from the students is that this "soft" stuff is far more useful to them than the technical part of the class--because they realize that most of the obstacles to their work involve people more than actual technical problems.

Some people dismiss this book because it is so "soft." But it is really filled with excellent advice (even scripting conversations for you). And, more importantly, it asks you to confront your own sense of "victimhood." People have choices. You have choices. Your client (or boss) has choices. Make yours. Let your boss make hers (his). And then do the best you can. This sounds simple. But just try it sometime. You will feel like the bravest person you can imagine--and you will be just that.

And once you have absorbed that most important lesson, all the rest of the book will fall into place for you. And Block is an engaging writer. You will enjoy the journey.

I can't recommend this book enough.

More Like a Textbook than a Guidebook 17 janvier 2014
Par DFC RI - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Purchased Flawless Consulting for some information on how to market myself as a consultant and be effective in that role.

I was expecting a book with tips and tricks for being an effective consultant - along with some cautionary tales and advice from the trenches.

This book does not provide the information in a very digestable format. It is very nuts and bolts. Do this, do that, don't do this, do that... with almost zero stories from the field to teach the lessons of the book. There is good information here... but it is a bear to get through it.

A guide to being an authentic management consultant 19 décembre 2013
Par E. Ho - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you are not interested in authenticity and are not the patient sort, this book isn't for you. If wealth creation is your primary driver, this book isn't for you either.

The focus of this book is on how authenticity can help you do a better job, and win the respect as well as loyalty of your clients. The consulting process recommended by Peter requires patience (consulting is a process and not an overnight solution, the consultant is not the doctor but a partner, and the client is not an observer but a participant), and require that consultants have the courage to not only educate the client, but to turn down clients.

It may seem a bit idealistic in the real world and not always applicable - I know this because not every consulting company is going to be authentic. Consultants may be coerced to meet sales targets, make quick profits, or they may be oversold (or undersold) by the sales team (in some consulting firms, the principals do not do the sales & contracting - they deliver after the contract is signed. The sales and contracting is done by a different team).

Nevertheless, the principles and values, espoused by Peter is something I personally share.

The content is presented in an easy to read delivery. Templates can be downloaded through the author's website.

Great ideas, Clunky Delivery 20 février 2013
Par she buys stuff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The ideas in this book are great and helpful. That's the good part. The problem is in the meandering writing style and the steps within steps within (well, you get the idea). This book is certainly a must have as a quick reference, but as a cover to cover read, it gets a bit cumbersome.

Great addition to any professional library 25 juin 2013
Par M. David - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book was a required text for my graduate studies at USC. I was immediately drawn into it and loved the way Block converted years of experience into easy to read format for beginner as well as experienced professionals. It's an easy read for people with busy lives as well as students who want to learn more about consulting after they graduate.

Block does a great job warning about crossing the line from consultant to employee when dealing with clients as well as how to deal with resistance. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to get into the consulting industry or for seasoned pros who want another perspective as a way to keep their sword sharp!
