Confessions of An MBA Consultant

 

“When a client and I decide to work together, one of the first things I like to explain is that my job isn’t to burst their bubble.  “Anyone can tell you all the reasons you won’t get in,” I tell clients. “My job is to show you how you can get in.”

That’s the philosophy of Stacy Blackman, founder of Stacy Blackman Consulting and an online business school columnist for US News and World Report. But how does she apply it when working with an actual client?

Last year, Stacy took Poets inside one of her consulting sessions with a client who’d lost 4 jobs in 4 years. How did she help this client turn such a stumbling block into an advantage? Check out her column to find out.
