Yes. Absolutely true. One thing I haven't yet figured out yet: how to prevent sabotage from within or in some cases sabotage as a result of two consultants competing for the top, perhaps one of them has more inside weight.

I would say that in general it is true, but I have seen cases where there is no way to succeed no matter what you do.

Well articulated. Clients may be "unreasonable" from time to time -or all the time- but that is precisely why they pay us, why they give us the keys to their castles and trust us with the very fate of their businesses.

There are no excuses. Failure is not an option. You should always do the work you are hired for. However, the "super consultant" goes beyond this. Doing the work the client didn't expect, but ultimately will need, is what makes our work so special, vital, interesting and even fulfilling.

Well said, Michael. Some clients, or should I say, most clients want to say their own opinion on how to make their business prosper. And sometimes, they overlook the possible outcomes that might happen if they go with their plan. As a consultant, you want to maximize the resources of your client to give them greater ROI. And if you'll do that, you can be considered as a super consultant, figuratively.
