Successful consulting means you have to be comfortable with ambiguity, both in your role and the situation you are faced with.
On occasion, the professional simply takes on the role the client expects, while in other situations he/she needs to push past any
implicit role limits and assume a more powerful role. The goal is always to partner with clients while managing the consulting process—to
lead from behind.
