Though it's a potentially lucrative enterprise, the reality of independent consulting seldom matches the dream. Most solo consultants and boutique consulting firms are perpetually within six months of bankruptcy due to the sputtering unreliability of their new business engines. The problem, according to international consulting expert David A. Fields, is twofold: 1) lack of a consistent, proven plan, and 2) fundamental misunderstanding about what clients want in a consultant. Fields, who has helped hundreds of consultants and boutique firms worldwide build lucrative, sustainable practices, replaces the typical consultant's mindset of emphasizing expertise and differentiated processes with a focus on building relationships, engendering trust, and solving clients’ existing problems. In The Irresistible Consultant’s Guide to Winning Clients: Six Steps to Unlimited Clients and Financial Freedom, Fields synthesizes his decades of experience into a step-by-step approach to winning more projects from more clients at higher fees. From nuts-and-bolts business advice and tactics to a deeply insightful breakdown of the human side of a very human profession, Fields delivers a comprehensive guidebook that is at once highly approachable and satisfyingly detailed.

An innovative approach to winning more profitable sales in the growing professional services industry In recent years, professional services providers have had to rethink their sales methods and adapt to profound changes in the way clients buy services. In response, Winning the Professional Services Sale argues for fundamental changes in the seller's mindset and sales strategies. Rather than pressing the sale, salespeople must help clients buy--the way that works best for each client. This new approach gives buyers what they now want in a services seller: a consultative problem solver, change agent, and solution integrator, all rolled into one. Author Michael McLaughlin presents a strategy for winning new business with a holistic approach to each client relationship. Only by fully understanding a sale from every angle, including its impact on the client's business and career, can salespeople thrive in the new era of the service economy.

What is the fastest, most effective way to get highly qualified clients to grow your consulting firm? If you’re like most firm leaders, you’d say networking, social media campaigns, or content marketing — and you’d be wrong! Despite their popularity, these methods are wasteful, unpredictable, and rarely cost-effective. The world’s most successful consulting firms do not chase clients; they use “Catalysts” to attract them. In “Never Chase Clients Again”, consulting expert Michael Moshiri reveals what Catalysts are, and how the world’s biggest professional service firms — Deloitte, EY, and PwC — use them to find, attract, and win highly qualified clients. Moshiri explains how the most successful practice leaders in these firms motivate clients to want to buy services from them, instead of their competitors, by demonstrating the “Three Core Qualifications” of character, commitment, and competence — before their very first encounter. He then introduces you to the “Client Catalyst System”, a set of step-by-step instructions and practical principles that help you to leverage the power of Catalysts to find new clients, win more business, and grow your consulting firm — quickly, predictably, and efficiently. If you are a firm leader looking for ways to grow your client base, a seasoned consultant looking for a predictable and reliable source of consulting leads and prospective clients, or a consulting executive with business development responsibilities, then this book will show you the most effective strategies the world’s biggest firms use to achieve those goals. In addition, you can quickly implement the principles and the system outlined in this book by leveraging the free downloadable worksheets, templates, and checklists that are available to you on the book's website. “Never Chase Clients Again” is destined to take its place alongside “Managing The Professional Service Firm” and “The Trusted Advisor” as a business classic for consulting firm leaders, seasoned consultants, and business development professionals alike.

Written specifically for MBA students, this Second Edition of MANAGING IN A GLOBAL ECONOMY: DEMYSTIFYING INTERNATIONAL MACROECONOMICS presents macroeconomics in the context of models for decision-making and offers a strategic business focus. With business applications, concrete business examples, and an approach to macroeconomic theory via markets, Marthinsen demonstrates how macroeconomics can help leaders make better business decisions. The book helps students grasp practical big picture concepts, nurtures an understanding of what causes macroeconomic variables to change, and relates these changes to issues confronting managers. Marthinsen integrates the three major macroeconomic sectors (the real goods market, real loanable funds market, and foreign exchange market) in a user-friendly way. Liberating readers from dry, overly complex macroeconomic models, Marthinsen uses theory only as a means to an end for practical understanding and includes a minimum of math. Real world business examples show how economic shocks, such as monetary and fiscal policies or shifts in international capital flows, affect management decisions. Keeping readers visually engaged with strategic use of figures, tables, charts, and illustrative exhibits, MANAGING IN A GLOBAL ECONOMY emphasizes the interaction among markets and equips MBAs with a macroeconomic perspective that will last (and be used) for years.
