Any consulting firms that actually train their employees? I came from WM industry so consulting was a bit of a culture shock and i wish my company had invested time into training me so I’d be a better consultant. Hoping to make a move elsewhere to a company that spends a few weeks mentoring before putting you on a project.

The best way to learn in consulting is working in person with the team. If you're really interested in learning, I'd find a company that's still traveling.

i don’t think consulting will ever “invest time” into training - past the basics of modules, a lot of what you’re looking for comes from working with specific teams and people. I don’t think having to be in person is the only solution. I almost feel like you have to over-do it to find that middle ground of what level of effort, communication, and quality is the expectation. Granted, this has its own downfalls

I transferred from tax to consulting. I would advise to find a good mentor in the consulting practice. I lucked out in that my appointed career advisor turned out to be a great mentor who could shed light on how to handle client situations, what I needed to learn from a technical standpoint, etc.

Have loved my experience at LEK - it’s still on the job training primarily, but I find my colleagues incredibly helpful with no competitiveness whatsoever.

Training = plz fix, rinse and repeat

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.
