I had the chance to deeply develop my soft skills for management purposes, as well as acquire some technical knowledge on what consultants are working on.
To conclude, meeting with C-Level people or clients' first line managers allows you to have a bigger picture of what or where companies are going, in order to anticipate future needs.
My goal, at the beginning, was to match clients needs with our consultancy competencies. This means that not only you need to develop business, following your own strategies, but also recruit new candidates that will join your team and work on your projects. All these actions that you set up today, will give you positive or negative results in the future; for this reason, it's very important to have a long term concrete vision for your own business unit.
Today, my goal has changed; I'm in charge of what I created, my business unit, and I have to provide continuity to three main facets: maintaining a healthy financial balance, pursuing new interesting projects and promoting consultants' career.
Be careful though: you are the captain of your team, so it depends on you where you want to go and how you will acheive your goals. So listen and embrace others feedback, since they are the most helpful "tool" to understand if you are walking on the right path.
