Episode Details

Over 30 years, Ron Berg has seen what makes consultants exceptional and sought after. In this episode, we talk about:


  • Knowing who you are first and foremost and infusing your work with your character strengths and value

  • Cultivating basic skills and attributes that every consultant should have

  • Managing your mindset and understanding what you know

  • Avoiding tying your earning to the number of hours you can work

  • Switching from hourly billing to value-based pricing and assigning a monetary value to your work

  • Diluting your value by having a “secret sauce” or formula

  • Bringing your own spin to everything you have synthesized elsewhere
