Consultancy Skills for Researchers
Domain: D1 Working with others

TACE: E - Employment

Format: Workshop
Suitable for: All

If you look at the top ten skills wanted by employers, these bear a remarkable resemblance to the skills of a consultant; a little investigation shows that these are almost identical to the skills of an academic researcher. This course will show you what those skills are. It will identify:
* why ‘consultant thinking’ can be important in academia
* a simple process for consulting and show how this is a classic problem solving device, whether for research or non-research situations
* how to use these skills to enhance any situation where you need to produce work for someone or influence someone to do something for you
We will also look briefly at consulting as a career, both within and outside the academic environment.
