How Consultants Project Expertise and Learn at the Same Time

I came across a really interesting article from the Harvard Business Review titled “How Consultants Project Expertise and Learn at the Same Time” and I encourage anyone considering a consulting career path to give this a read.  The article focuses on the learning-credibility tension, which is all about how one learns and builds credibility simultaneously, a challenge for both new and experienced consultants.  The authors highlight some really good tactics and examples and I think you will come away with a better understanding and appreciation for the role of a consultant after reading this article.  Please click on the hyperlinked article title in the first sentence to access the full article.
