Consultants need to be the most productive people in the room. Consider this: when you’re hired on as a consultant, you’re being hired to do a very specific job. Maybe you are being pulled in to finish a project that no one else has been able to get done, maybe you’re being brought on to help manage a team or a division, or maybe you’re there because you have a specific set of skills that that company needs. Either way –time is money. Also, many consultants are working on multiple projects, jobs, or positions at once. Because of this, finding ways to be increasingly more productive are always a must.
