Assignment 2: Paper—Key Decision-Maker Report
For this assignment, you are to review a scenario and follow the directions listed to write a 3- to 4-page report.
You have scheduled your initial meeting with a key decision maker among a potential client’s senior staff. This decision maker likes to meet all consultants and is known for his or her candor. When you sit down, he or she explains he or she has never liked consultants because of personal experiences he or she has had, and he or she believes consultants provide no value. He or she is agreeing with the decision for practical political reasons only.
Using your textbook readings and two additional scholarly sources from the Argosy University online library resources, include the following in three to four pages:
- Determine the risks to the consultant in this situation.
- On the basis of your own strengths and weaknesses, explain how you would approach this client.
- Explain how you would use emotional intelligence to manage this situation.
- Discuss how you would influence this key decision maker to see the value in consulting services.
Your final product will be in a Microsoft Word document and be approximately three to four pages in length. You will utilize at least two scholarly sources in your research. Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.
