027: What to Look for When Hiring A PMO Consultant

PMI Talent Triangle: Leadership

Welcome to the PMO Strategies Podcast + Blog, where PMO leaders become IMPACT Drivers!

This episode is sponsored by my upcoming workshop: PMO Health Assessment and Plan

Show Notes:

If you have ever seen the movie, The Little Mermaid, you remember when the evil Ursula steels Arielle’s voice – that’s what can happen when you hire a consultant and don’t leverage it in your favor.

This week I am teaching you how to leverage the consultant as your voice – take that Ursula – AND how to make sure the consultant teaches YOU to fish instead of fishing for you. I will give you key tips to avoiding the traps that come with hiring consultants AND how to get out of them if you are already in there.

Check out this today’s episode where you’ll learn:

  • How to avoid newbie “boots on the ground” and earn your sea legs
  • What it means and why it is critical to assess similar challenges
  • Why you must maintain control
