Building and Maintaining a Successful Consulting Career

by Johanna Rothman, Principal, Rothman Consulting Group, Inc.

What makes a successful consultant? Knowing what works for you and what doesn’t. How do you know? Seeing your work and measuring what works and what doesn’t.

You can use the visual system of the personal kanban and add the feedback of reflecting at one-week intervals. Do you know which clients are great for you and which clients make you want to run away? How do you target clients for your marketing? How do you network, online and in-person?

We can quantify success for ourselves. We can reflect on what works and what doesn’t. Then we can decide what does work and change what doesn’t work.

In this mini-workshop, Johanna Rothman will discuss how she has created a 20-year consulting business using project management approaches such as personal kanban and timeboxes. She will share her metrics so you can decide if you want to model your consulting career after hersundefinedor if you want to try another tack. We’ll discuss what makes sense for your successful consulting business.
