Good communication is essential in consulting. You need to be able to communicate your ideas, strategies, and recommendations to clients in a clear and concise manner. Develop strong communication skills, both verbal and written. Be a good listener and understand the needs and concerns of your clients. Be proactive in keeping your clients informed of your progress and any issues that may arise during the consulting engagement.
