What makes a great Clemenger Group consultant?

A Clemenger Group consultant is curious, collaborative, smart, dynamic, supportive and vibrant. They have integrity. At their best, they make the work better. They present well. They are radiators, not drains. They have a healthy paranoia. They pick themselves up after being knocked down. They raise their hands, rather than point fingers. They are ‘we’, not ‘me’. They are loved and respected by clients and colleagues. They do the right thing.
