On June 16th, 2020, Fifty Thousand Foot in conjunction with the SkillRanch Podcast held a webinar focusing on the Consultant mindset. You can view the session here:

Consulting is not just about giving advice. It is much more than that. Consultants build solutions, using various tools, techniques, and approaches. Consultants build teams, perform research, brainstorm, and sell studies. They work on data, charts and facts and put together presentations to clearly communicate analysis and outcomes to clients. They work with internal teams, as well as client teams. They manage conflict, negotiate, and bring everyone on the same page. All of this requires a certain discipline. In this webinar, we will explore how consultants can successfully navigate through the challenges and help build a better tomorrow.
