Communication Tactics for Consultants

By: Johnathon Wright on: March 23, 2020

Here, I'll list some of the communication tactics I've grown to use over the last 10 years of consulting.

Sometimes you want to make it clear that you do not have the ball, but it also seems like a minor issue and you don't want to make a big deal about it. You can say, in increasing level of assertiveness:

  • Not sure if this was intended for me. Let me know how I can help.
  • It's not clear how this is related to me. Unless I hear from you, I will take it as an FYI.
  • Any action items for me here?
