San Francisco, CA – Our lives are full of profound uncertainty. Permanent vulnerability and uncertainty demand a level of relatedness and thus makes command and control behavior increasingly obsolete. For these reasons, people are functioning more than ever in a consultative stance.
It's been nearly 25 years since Peter Block's FLAWLESS CONSULTING was first published. The book quickly established itself as the "consultant's bible" and became a landmark bestseller that astutely explained how to deal effectively with clients, peers, and others.
This thoroughly revised third edition of FLAWLESS CONSULTING: A Guide to Getting Your Expertise Used (Jossey-Bass; 978-0-470-62074-8; March 2011) by Peter Block explores the latest thinking on consultation. It includes new insights about how we can organize our consulting around discovering the strengths, positive examples, and gifts of the client organization or community. The book remains a practical and specific guide for anyone who needs to develop a capacity for deeper relatedness and partnership.
FLAWLESS CONSULTING not only addresses business changes and new challenges since the second edition was written 10 years ago, but also addresses what's on the minds of "next generation" consultants, including:
- More guidance on how to ask better questions
- Dealing with a difficult client
- Working in an increasingly virtual world
- Dealing with challenges with international consulting
- More guidelines on implementation
- More on how to ask good questions
- Additional case studies
Like the first two editions, FLAWLESS CONSULTING affirms the notion that authentic behavior and personal relationships are the key to business success. By demonstrating their ability to be truly authentic at each step in the process, consultants can aim toward creating workplaces that are more collaborative and ultimately more successful.
