Licentia Franchise SA (Pty) Ltd anticipating Attributes in you…

Consultants are Flexible
Great consultants adapt to new projects, work cultures, and clients easily. They come in, they fit in, and they get the job done. Their soft skills and technical expertise allow them to take on their roles quickly and easily.

Consultants are Good Listeners
Clients stating their needs and problems is the most frustrating way to ensure you are going to be able to understand and solve their problems as easily or quickly as possible. Do not assume you know everything about their challenges or business even after doing research or if you had tackled this same problem before. In addition to being a good listener, ask relevant, open-ended questions. This allows the client to realize you are listening to them and understanding their current situation.

Consultants Have Great Discipline
Great consultants work hard, and they work smart. They know how to accomplish the best results in the shortest possible time with as little friction as possible. Great consultants are problem solvers: bring them in and the work gets done.

Consultants Have Good Communication Skills
Communication skills are both oral and written. The ability to be a good speaker is just as important as having the ability to write clear, concise emails and presentations. Since consultants are often viewed as Subject Matter Experts, the ability to deliver a message either written or aloud is critical to being a successful consultant.

Consultants are Confident
Excellent consultants have faith in their abilities and knowledge. They leave their egos at the door and demonstrate a natural collaborative leadership. Great consultants are team players that prioritize the needs of the business and the group as a whole. Be careful not to sound or appear unsure when responding to questions from clients. Speak with confidence. In particular, project the greatest amount of confidence while speaking about things that are private or sensitive to a customer.

Consultants are Persistent
Great consultants don’t give up, never. They accept frictions, unforeseen circumstances, and negative feedback, they learn from them, and they move on. They will analyze and learn from every setback to prevent it from happening again.

Consultants Exhibit Humility
Humility is not thinking you are better than other people. Do not be boastful or arrogant when working with Business Owners. Remember, the individuals you are working with may have been doing the job you are now tasked to remedy or improve, they are already frustrated with litigation red tape. Always keep in mind the client is the star in this equation and your job as the consultant is to help the client shine.

Consultants are Studious
Great consultants are lifelong learners. They must remain current with developments in their areas of expertise. When others can’t, it is their responsibility to bring the most recent knowledge and skills to the table. Possess the ability to demonstrate expertise. The notion of a Subject Matter Expert (SME) appears once more. Your client engaged you (or your Franchise) either because they believe you to be more qualified than the internal teams at their organization, or because they lack the bandwidth, resources, or time to address the issues at hand. Make sure to demonstrate your competence in this specific field in all of your encounters with your client. Additionally essential to staying competitive and at the top of the game is ongoing education.

Consultants go Further
Great consultants see the big picture and the small parts that can make it better. Consultants bring a fresh view, and as such, they can offer surprising insights that can solve problems and boost the client’s business. A successful consultant gives regular professional feedback, this is not your business, and you have an obligation towards your client to keep them up to date at all times.

Consultants Easily Cultivate and Gain Client Trust
All these skills ultimately lead to this final characteristic of gaining your client’s trust. Your engagement will not be successful if the client does not feel a sense of trust in you as the consultant. The ability to calm the concerns and show value for the money being paid by the client is imperative to the success of the engagement and the ability to earn future business from this client or by their recommendation to their network.

Consultants are Team Player
The development of a collaborative relationship with peers and clients is imperative to being a great consultant. Working well with others not only strengthens your skills but also can allow for the growth of your Licentia Franchise SA.
