Episode 18 – Career advice from the best in the business

Career advice from the best in the business - Climb in Consulting Podcast

Listen elsewhere...

Since starting the podcast I’ve interviewed a whole host of phenomenal leaders from the Consulting industry who’ve shared some of their best advice across a range of areas critical to climbing in Consulting.

One question I ask almost all of my guests is their advice for those people looking to build a career in the industry. A number of you have told me how useful you’ve found the answers to this specific question so I wanted to put all of the answer together so that you have a compilation of career advice from the best in the business.

As a recap, or for those of you who may not have listened to any of my other interviews before, the question that these guests are answering asks for one piece of advice for three different people:

The first is someone who’s just starting their career in Consulting – anywhere from 0 to 2 years in.

The second is for someone ‘in the middle’ of their Consulting career – 4 – 6 years in to Consulting.

The third is for someone who’s approaching Partner or considering going out on their own to create their own business.

There are so many great pieces of advice in this episode and some really interesting common themes and principles that have helped my guests get to the top.

As Tony Robbins says “success leaves clues”. Here’s you’re chance to find them.
