Consulting Skills: The Manager As Internal Consultant

A leader plays different roles in the organization: manager of operations, subject matter expert, communicator, coach and mentor.

As a leader moves up, the evolution must continue. Leaders are no longer just “department heads.” They help run the business.

The challenge: are leaders able to evolve from department heads to managers of the business? They must be empowered. After all, they’re well immersed in operations and highly exposed to customers. The potential for innovation is limitless – that is, if managers are properly empowered.

Empowered managers must act as subject matter experts and doctors who can properly diagnose business or team problems — and prescribe business solutions. They must learn to act as internal consultants who can effectively propose improvements and innovations.
