Flawless Consulting®

What many people fail to understand is that relationships are the mechanism for getting anything done at work.

For over 40 years, Peter Block’s best-seller, Flawless Consulting, a Guide to Getting Your Expertise Used, has been the guidebook for how to cultivate these relationships where things get done. It’s revered by consultants, professionals, and leaders and has guided their journey of discovering lasting solutions, building healthy partnerships, and transforming organizations for good.

Before the book ever hit shelves, Flawless Consulting was designed as a workshop for people inside organizations trying to successfully influence where they have no direct authority or control. While the theories and tips in the book are highly beneficial, there is no better way to learn them than through practice and real-life application.

Our Flawless Consulting® workshop will help you master the promises and phases of the renowned book through interactive and powerful learning experiences.

Master the Phases of Consulting

Flawless Consulting 1:

Building Strategic Partnerships

In this foundational workshop, you will dive into the core of being useful, not just helpful. After understanding the principles, phases, and promises of Flawless Consulting, we will focus on the crucial initial phase— Contracting. Here, you’ll learn a repeatable process for building collaborative partnerships.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to confidently handle contracting conversations, setting the stage for shared achievements.

You’ll also be invited to schedule two 30-minute, one-on-one coaching sessions with your facilitator to discuss how best to put the Flawless methodology into practice at work and in life.

Flawless Consulting 2:

Getting Your Expertise Used

Flawless 2 focuses on helping you elevate your skills in Discovery and Feedback while revisiting and honing the expertise acquired in Flawless Consulting 1.

During a live simulation, you’ll practice and navigate the first three phases of consulting: Contracting, Discovery, and Feedback. By mastering these three phases, you’ll make an impact on clients, colleagues, and other stakeholders, ensuring that you get your expertise used and valued every time.

Please note that Flawless Consulting 1 is a prerequisite for Flawless Consulting 2. Sign up for both workshops at the same time for a special discount.
