MBM 5569 - Consulting Skills


The Professional Consultant in healthcare exercises a form of leadership without direct authority or control over an organization. Yet, consultants can play a critical role in mobilizing organizational resources, and inspiring a process of transformational change. Health consultants may work in major university medical centers and hospital systems, corporate medical clinics and health systems, corporate wellness credits, health insurance organizations, and small community or privately based clinics and group practices. Consultants work closely with other people who are responsible for the outcomes. Consulting can be part of any professional role such as that of a teacher, therapist, counselor, coach, or leader. A key skill is the ability to use influence and persuasion to help others get things done. A second key skill is to recognize the critical moment when a human system is ready for a change process. In effect, whenever a professional cannot or does not want to force people into action, yet needs to suggest or advocate a plan of action, the skills developed in this course will be useful. Prerequisite(s): No Prerequisite. 3 credit(s)
Offered: SP - Term B. Course Length: 8 Weeks. No RC Required.
