For consultants who want to go beyond just being helpful to an organization, the founder of an organizational consulting and leadership development firm shifts the emphasis from being an expert problem-solver to forming an empowering partnership for change. Drawing on interviews with consultants and executives on what differentiates master from ordinary consultants, Merron (PhD, Harvard) explains his client-centered approach from laying a conceptual framework to attaining mastery in action.

Keith Merron believes that most consultants follow a consulting model that may make a lot of money, or add value, without making a real and enduring difference. In Consulting Mastery, he argues that the most powerful element in making that difference is the consultant's inner stance - those attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, goals, and strategies that underlie his or her consulting practice. Each of the book's five sections guides the reader through a journey of self-exploration fueled by the wisdom of master consultants. Section one, Understanding Consulting Mastery, lays the conceptual foundation of the book. Sections two through four explore different aspects of Mastery in Action, from how to create a mutually satisfying, empowering relationship, to how a master consultant applies knowledge, to utilizing self-awareness in consultancy. Section five provides a road map for learning - guidance for readers who want to deepen their ability and become not only more successful, but more masterful.
