    During an interview, it is common to be asked “Tell me about yourself.” Even though you’re mentally prepared for the question to be asked, suddenly your heart starts racing, your mind goes blank, and you just plain forget how to talk like a normal human. In thousands of hours of interview preparation every year, we find similar themes with EVERY client: you love breaking your brain for the case interview, and assume that for the the fit interviews – being more predictable by comparison – you can wing it. Au contraire, peeps. The fit interview is where magic…

    Consultants often play the endless mind game of ‘know everything, know nothing’. They start their careers by thinking they don’t know enough to be successful. A year or two in and they think they know everything there is to know. A simple excuse is to say that it costs money and that you don’t have […] To Be The Best, First Get Better is a post from: Consulting Success

Common responses to these questions include: “The economy” “Lack of money” “No contacts” “Need a better website” “I’m not sure what to do” Each one of these may be a well intentioned response, yet […] 5 Keys to Unlock Your Potential and Become a Great Consultant is a post from: Consulting Success

Because of that, effective networking is critical. In the following videos, we give an overview on networking basics – specific to consulting. You’ll learn: Who you should networking with inside the firm How your networking effort will affect the way your resume is reviewed How a candidate is ranked in a team review process What makes consultants motivated to respond to your…
  • 5 Core Case Study Principles Every Interviewee MUST Know

    8 Jun 2014 | 4:00 am
    The case study question is a fundamental portion of any consulting interview. Perhaps you’re a natural at networking, possess a wunderkind resume, and exemplify expert-level interpersonal communication skills. When it comes to evaluating case studies, none of your other skills really matter. The bad news is that case study questions require a very particular way of thinking. There are not particularly intuitive for the uninitiated. Consulting firms used to say, “You don’t need to practice for case interviews – anyone can do them, even an English major.” However, it…

    GALLUP CONSULTING INTERVIEWS AND CULTURE With a name that evokes the Wild Wild West, Gallup Consulting just sounds like a fun place to work. However unrelated to horse racing or wrangling, Gallup is an impressive firm – based on strong analytical research and insight-gathering for key clients.  The Gallup Consulting practice is a unique place – easier to break into from non-targets than MBB, but outrageously globally competitive and totally unique in its assessment process (you have one chance, in your life, period).

    Note: Number of available spaces remaining are updated daily below (paragraph 13). For the last 12 months, we’ve been running our popular Black Belt Interviewer course – with tremendous success. Compared to a scary 3% acceptance rate at consulting firms, Black Belts rock – 55% of our participants have gotten 1 or more offers at top 10 firms. We don’t attribute all of their success to us – after all, Black Belts are pre-disposed to awesomeness because they start prep early, practice often, and have a boatload of fun doing it. On average, they do 30-50 cases with…

    Fast change is the term I use to describe the methods used to tackle organisational issues that don’t require a large-scale intervention, but just need a sensible, rapid and light approach to dealing with short-term difficulties or even new opportunities. The issues are often performance related and may require addressing motivation, creativity and synergy or simply provide an opportunity to talk and sort some stuff out. They usually apply to teams and projects in everything from new product development and design through to implementation and change projects or to operational units who…

    Redbean has two approaches to change in organisations. Fast change which is focussed on working climate, teams, projects, creativity and innovation and Slow change which focusses on the whole organisation or large change programs (e.g. new systems, transformation, mergers). Deciding on Fast versus Slow change is a strategy question yet both of them require opening the can of worms called culture . How do we do that without it getting messy? My first steps to helping an organisation to improve/define/change its culture is to understand that which already exists. Culture and climate, its more…

    I escaped the anti-intellectual confines of Brisbane, capital of Queensland, many years ago but often venture back to see what’s happening. And there is stuff happening! Monocle magazine in the UK - the Hipster’s Times - recently included Brisbane in their top twenty of the world’s most liveable cities. In an Australian State with a monocular view of the world this comes as a bit of a surprise. The current Premier of Queensland has stated many times he is in the business of coal mining. This affection for the world’s dumbest industry along with the destruction of…

    I have tried to explain visually, how one can provide a customized learning environment to learners based on their interest, cognitive skills, learning style and learning mode. I’ve suggested that if the assessments from various modes of learning such as F2F, eLearning, mLearning and informal are thoroughly analyzed, the analysis will pave way for customized learning that will try to bring the best out of the learner as content will be offered to the learner in the way most preferred by him / her. Here I have suggested that the knowledge from informal learning be analyzed by integrating it…

    27 Aug 2014 | 9:05 am
    One of the reasons why people repeat behaviors from the past is because of inertia. Inertia is best characterized as blindly repeating a task, process, or behavior because you’ve been successful in the past doing so. Inertia at its core is about maintaining the status quo and remaining comfortable. While there are good reasons to repeat certain aspects of our work, preserving the past can become an inhibitor to creating a new and more desirable future whether for ourselves, our employees, and most importantly for our customers. When it comes to remaining comfortable the vast majority of…

    Video Notes: Good morning everyone, my name is Hugh Blane and it is the Monday Morning Minute, and this week I want to invite you to a teleconference on September 26th which is a Friday at 9:00 am. The teleconference is entitled, ‘Mastering Your Mindset.’ Let me make no bones about it, there are very talented people inside organizations that have an incredibly bad mindset. There is no positivity, there’s very little perseverance, they’re not playing to their strengths, they don’t have a clear and compelling purpose, they look at obstacles as things that are just…

    Photo Courtesy of iStock Photo We live one block away from Puget Sound. It’s a quiet beach community where the smell of salt air rolls up to our house and we watch eagles and herons flying fifty feet overhead. One day last week, while sitting outside in our garden with my morning cup of tea, a crow landed on the power line and started squawking. No matter how hard I tried to ignore him the squawking continued for over five minutes. My attention was no longer on the beauty and solitude of the morning. Instead it was squarely on the intrusion being brought by the crow. We all have a…

    Video Notes: This week’s viewer question comes from Richard Gambril from the University of Tennessee. Richard, thank you for sending me your question. Richard asks, “How do you develop solid IT managers?” Richard, I’m going to assume you don’t want them to become better technologists but you want them to become better people managers. If I’m right, then I’ve got three suggestions for you. #1. Remember, trust and respect as a manager is always garnered by your behavior and how you interact with people. It is not garnered by just having ‘manager’ or…

    Photo courtesy of iStock Photo What’s important to you? I mean really important to you. When you know what is important you can set priorities that are meaningful. But for many leaders, what’s important are their business metrics. These metrics, while very important, are not what drives all of a leaders decisions though. What drives their decisions are aspects of who they are that are below the conscious thought process while at work. If you want to know what’s important to you as a person and as a leader, there are twelve questions that can help you. 1. What do you read,…
