Any podcasts or books that actually have valuable substance for folks in management consulting?

I would definitely recommend The Trusted Advisor and The Pyramid Principle.

The first for gaining a client's trust and loyalty, the second for effective storytelling techniques.

HBR, McKinsey, Knowledge @Wharton and various industry specific podcasts.

Thanks - it seems like every podcast feels obligated to incorporate politics or ‘how to deal with covid’ that it’s made it impossible to find anything worth listening to.

I found some of the articles on the McK or BCG website particularly interesting - they have a broad range of topics.

Also I liked a lot the McK book called Value - it’s a little less dense a whole lot smaller than the Valuation. Valuation is also great but too specific for most folks. I’m not the biggest fan of the Strategy to beat the odds book, but I liked the article though.

Thanks - still relevant to other strategic focuses.

I’ve found the a16z podcasts useful. The one on education is superb

Has anyone ever made the jump from consulting to being a full time creative?

Recently I've realized that consulting isn't what I wanna do, but more broadly idk if a 9-5 business job is for me either. I've always wanted to make films and write books but I rarely see anyone in our industry make this kind of jump. Also finances 🥴

Overall I'm just not sure if I can see myself doing this for the next 30 years
