Interesting and thought provoking article positing a ‘curious’ consultant, one without answers, is better equipped to solve problems during irrational times; and a ‘clever’ consultant, one with answers, is better equipped to solve problems during rational times. I lean more towards being ‘curious’ and not knowing if I can help a client, rather than being presumptuous in believing I have the answers to solve a problem. I was invited to tape a podcast recently and told the moderator I never assume I can help anyone or everyone. He said his podcast highlighted only experts and seemed to disagree with my philosophy? I didn’t make the cut and the broadcast didn’t air. Thoughts on being Curious or Clever?
