Who reads this blog? 10 survey results

By | August 26, 2015

Thanks for reading this blog. I have enjoyed your company and comments. Hope you find this stuff – not so boring – and potentially helpful. Some survey results which hint at www.consultantsmind.com readers.

As my wife flattered me and also you guys – you have some smart and privileged group of readers. For that I am thankful for you. Keep reading, and I will do my best to keep this useful and interesting. Once it gets boring for you – and for me – I will stop. Until then, keep trucking. Do great work, teach and learn from others, and have fun.

As with all surveys, caveats apply. The same size is small (usually less than 100 people). The people who respond to surveys are not necessarily the average reader, but instead someone who is engaged . . . willing to “click” on an answer. Nonetheless, I like the profile of my readers and get encouraged from this information. Read on.

    Love your blog. As a European I am afraid I find The Economist borderline free-market stakhanovist so won’t follow you there! What is your thinking around how consulting methods transfer from one country to another?

      Good question. Unfortunately,I have only consulted in the U.S. But have worked for clients with corporate headquarters from Japan, Netherlands, France, UAE.

      The biggest factor is likely cultural, not the tools or methods. Methods work fine, but need to be tweaked to respect the culture and pace of change. My thoughts.
