About Peter Block

Consulting Services

Our training services provide consulting skills training that help organizations create sustainable change through engagement.

Central to our work is helping employees and leaders in organizations move to a culture in which people choose to be accountable. Employees make this choice to instill internal consulting skills because they understand and are committed to the purpose and direction of their organization, and they own the role they have in its success.

Our way of working stands in contrast to change strategies that use methodologies inconsistent with the goals an organization wants to achieve. To avoid such organizational contradictions, we encourage the development of HR consulting skills in creating a more cohesive environment. One cannot dictate empowerment or expect commitment. Finding new ways of tightening our efforts to “hold” people accountable is not sustainable. Stated simply, we have little faith in creating new systems to hold employees accountable.

There are two facets to our consultant skills practice.

  • The first is based on theories and processes underlying Flawless Consulting and supports the development of internal staff capabilities to partner with operations to achieve business results.
  • The second is focused on teaching organizations the internal consulting skills that will help them define and achieve results by creating a culture where people choose to be accountable.

This work can take many forms (strategic planning, organization development, leadership development, business partner training, organization re-design, IT consulting skills), but regardless of the form, the process will include a focus on changing the conversation, engaging with people affected by the work, and finding ways to make the desired changes sustainable.
