    102: Current Crisis = Golden Opportunity to Transform Your Life

    102: Current Crisis = Golden Opportunity to Transform Your Life

    Our clients are often facing crises and catastrophes somewhere in the world. From virus outbreaks to earthquakes, wildfire evacuations and more. And they write to us about their immediate plans to manage the situation. What we find is that they almost always take actions that damage their careers and hurt their lives. They let external factors, the media narrative and their social network influence them to make poor choices that handicap their lives. Often severely.
    They don't realize that the biggest, fastest and most sustainable way to transform one’s life and career is to leverage a crisis. Don't run from a crisis. Run into a crisis.
    This is a short episode released on Strategy Skills iTunes channel and YouTube which includes an overview of the full program we released for FC Insiders (StrategyTraining.com/Strategy Training apps).

    97: The most important output in a consulting study | Management consulting project  | Benefits case

    An episode 96 of Strategy Skills iTunes podcast is here (Strategy Skills podcast is ranked among 5-10 top for careers in many countries worldwide). 
    One thing you always need to present in all of your management consulting projects is a business case. If you are not presenting a business case to a client, or a benefits case, I prefer the word benefits because it makes it clear you are looking for a benefit for a client, if you are not presenting a benefits case to a client you are making it very difficult for the client to make the decision to implement what you are saying in your recommendation as part of your management consulting project.

The podcast I didn’t know I needed

As an older undergraduate student and operations manager, I am finding value in every podcast here so far and in the entire series on the Case Interviews podcast. Today I cited “The Organizational Design Stream” in a discussion assignment for a class. At work I have been more cognizant of how I communicate to get my message across in a concise and more effective manner. Thank you Michael and FC team!

Top Flight Strategy Training

For someone who is interested in corporate strategy either as a current consultant or headed in that direction; this is the very best podcast I've found to learn strategy. The training comes from former MBB partners with real in the trenches experience coupled with real business cases. Not some fancy theory. Firmsconsulting's products/services are high value and high integrity, great work here again.
