Developing and Using Consultancy Skills also includes essential coverage of common problems with client-consultation relationships and how to overcome these as well as discussion of ethics and consultant behaviour. Essential reading for anyone studying the intermediate CIPD L&D qualification, this guide will not only equip students for their studies, but also for their role as L&D professionals in the workplace.
