Organizational Associates: So You Want to Be a Consultant?
Pace, R. Wayne
Rather than being motivated to assist people, individuals usually approach a career as a consultant with aspirations of obtaining prestige or supplementing their income. Being a speech teacher, although helpful, is not qualification enough for a position as a consultant in the areas of management and organizational behavior. The types of information which should be retained and analyzed by the efficient communications consultant in order to facilitate his objectives are listed. The major portion of the paper describes the Organizational Associates, a consulting group of university-affiliated educators who conduct on-the-premises process consultations, workshops, training programs, and communications audits. Names of the current twelve associated consultants and the five officers-directors are mentioned, and a sample training program designed for a federal agency and conducted with almost a dozen groups is included.
