Episode 170 Mission-Oriented and Heart-Centered Consulting—with Jeffrey Ring
Mission matters in consulting. And the clearer you are about the mission behind your consulting business, the easier it will be to pursue the clients that are a fit for you and get to do work that makes your heart sing.
In this Craft of Consulting podcast episode, I interview Jeffrey Ring who decided to orient his whole consulting business toward an important mission and heart-centered work. We also talk about critical skills that make it work and enable you to get the business you truly want.
At its best, consulting is about more than making great money. It’s about a mission and meaning. In this episode, we talk about:
Knowing the roots of choosing a mission-oriented consulting business
Understanding why he was not successful as a consultant at the beginning
Stopping doing project not in your wheelhouse and getting in the line of sight of clients you truly want to work with
Having the courage to embrace a clear mission
Practicing assertiveness and courage until it gets easier
Doing equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism work
Using go-to tools for self-reflection
