Last month, I began a series where I divulge the change lessons I’ve experienced in the back seat of a taxicab through my travels as a consultant.
A cabbie told me this story: Late on a busy Saturday, a general dispatch call came over the radio, asking anyone in a certain area of town to please pick up a pregnant woman and get her to the nearest hospital. The cabbie was on the other side of town. Picking up and dropping of a passenger, they neared the location. The dispatcher was still pleading for someone to pick up the woman.
Naïve me, of course I ask, “Why wouldn’t anyone go pick her up?”

That word: Consultant. It’s a term that’s used broadly and can mean many things. Some consultants carry the power, influence, and heft of a large organization behind them. Others are small boutique firms. Some are solo or independent practitioners. Some have been around for years, building a client portfolio. They consider consulting their profession – their vocation. Others hang out a shingle between jobs, consulting until “something better” comes along. Some business consultants are specialists in a very defined niche or area of expertise. Others are more diversified, offering an array of services. Still others specialize by industry or geography. Yes, there’s many.
You are trying to find the one consultant who can help change your culture. Perhaps you want a competitive advantage? Perhaps you want good people to proactively come to you to work for you? Perhaps you’re looking for operational efficiencies. Whatever the reason, finding a culture change consultant is no easy feat.
