Are you a consultant or want to be one? Understanding the strange but enlightening connection between magicians and consultants can prepare you for an intriguing aspect of the consulting world. Drawing from my experience working at a magic shop, I explain how magicians are like consultants.
Just as a magic shop sells the secret behind a trick, consultants offer their expertise and knowledge to their clients. Both benefit by accepting the truth of how things work, rather than clinging to preconceived notions.
