Time again for a short but nevertheless important one – rule #49: Make a difference.
One of the core qualities of top notch consultants is a burning desire to make a difference with their work. To heavily contribute to their clients’ results. To influence and positive affect the future. To have an effect on their clients’ success. To generate value.
Consultants who make a difference are self-confident and trust their experience and skills to get things done. These people refuse to undervalue themselves. They deny to accept that they might not have any impact. They try constantly to make a difference, even if it’s a small one.
Using the words of Dame Anita Roddick, a british businesswoman and human rights activist, best known as the founder The Body Shop: “If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.”
