Sin embargo, sí puedo contar las muchas, muchísimas veces que me he perdido llamadas, recibí mensajes de voz y luego ni siquiera me di cuenta de esos mensajes de voz. Y los dejé en mi buzón sin responder por largo rato. De modo que cuando recibí un mensaje de texto de Michael Hunn que decía que me había dejado un mensaje de voz, entonces revisé mi buzón que estaba lleno de mensajes de cumpleaños, llamadas para donar sangre y ahí estaba. Michael Hunn, de la oficina del Obispo Presidente me había llamado y me perdí esa llamada. Francamente, yo sí sabía que ya había conocido a Michael, pero en realidad no sabía quién era él ni que cargo tenía. Entonces les pregunté a mis padres: “¿Saben que Michael Hunn de la oficina del OP me llamó?” y lo demás es historia. Cuando Michael me ofreció esta oportunidad fue un honor para mí y me dejó completamente atónito. En todo caso, quiero aprovechar este momento para dar las gracias al Obispo Presidente Curry, al Reverendo Canónigo Anthony Guillen y al Director de Formación Bronwyn Clark Skov. Estas personas me han puesto hoy en frente de ustedes y no podría sentirme más honrado al tener esta oportunidad.Al repasar las oraciones y las lecturas para hoy, hay siete palabras que se destacan para mí. Siete. Son siete palabras que pueden justamente haber resumido mi punto de vista de lo que la Iglesia Episcopal debe ser, de lo que yo creo que puede ser. En la colecta de hoy, escuchamos las palabras “unidos entre sí mediante un afecto puro”. Las dos últimas palabras me resultaron especialmente poderosas: “afecto puro”. Estas palabras me traen muchos recuerdos y pensamientos a la mente, los más notables son las historias de mis experiencias en esta Iglesia. En esta mañana compartiré con ustedes tres de esos recuerdos relacionados con estas palabras.Para aquellos de ustedes que han tenido la oportunidad de visitar el Centro de Conferencias Kanuga, ya saben de la belleza y la espiritualidad de aquel lugar. Pues ese frío de la mañana y la vista del lago, el sonido de los pájaros y el crujir de las hojas al viento. Yo he estado en dos ocasiones en Kanuga. La primera vez, cuando tenía 10 años, fuimos con mi familia a “Nuevo Amanecer” una conferencia del Ministerio Latino presente en toda la Iglesia. Sin embargo, fue mi más reciente visita la que más me ha impresionado en la vida. En febrero de 2017, cuando tenía 16 años, llegué al campo de Kanuga por primera vez luego de una ausencia de casi siete años, en esta ocasión como parte del Equipo de Planeación del Evento Juvenil Episcopal (EYE). El estar en ese lugar me hizo recordar que la paz y el poder de la naturaleza sirven para apaciguar y realzar mis experiencias. Cuando me dirigía hacia ese lugar estaba dando los últimos toques a lo que sería la Plegaria Eucarística de Clausura utilizada en EYE 17 en Oklahoma City. En la capilla de Kanuga, el equipo de Música y Liturgia y yo probamos nuestra Plegaria Eucarística de Clausura con ellos. Para el sermón, los cuatro jóvenes del equipo de Música y Liturgia se turnaron para exponer al grupo lo que significaba para nosotros el Sendero de la Paz. Yo creo que mi respuesta ha cambiado desde entonces, pero el sentimiento sigue siendo el mismo. Para entonces, mi sendero de la paz era un camino que tenía que recorrer para estar satisfecho conmigo mismo y con mis acciones e interacciones en el mundo. Creo que ahora eso ha cambiado. Yo creo que más que mis interacciones con el mundo, yo he cambiado de rumbo para enfocarme y apreciar las relaciones que mantengo con la gente, sus historias, sus maneras de comportarse, la poesía que hay en sus emociones y lo saludable de esa conexión.Pero no es acerca de mi mensaje de aquella noche de lo que quiero hablarles en esta ocasión. Yo quiero hablarles de cómo ese mensaje fue recibido por mis compañeros en aquella capilla. Yo quiero hablarles del afecto puro que el grupo nos dio luego de compartir con ellos nuestra creación y cuál sería nuestro legado en el Evento Juvenil Episcopal. Recuerdo haber dicho que había sentido paz con cada uno de los jóvenes y los adultos en el equipo y también orgullo, y el amor que recibí debido a lo que tenía que decir. Recuerdo a Valerie Harris señalando el altar y diciéndome que ése era mi lugar, diciéndome que ella veía en mí algo más de lo cual yo no me había dado cuenta todavía. Ahora no estoy de acuerdo, pero en aquel instante sentí que yo era amado en esta Iglesia y en esta comunidad.Lo que se me olvidó mencionar sobre el tiempo que pasé en Kanuga es que fue la primera vez que interpreté mi poema de la palabra hablada, Alabanza. En realidad, las dos primeras frases que dije al principio de este sermón provenían de ese poema. Ese poema fue el punto culminante de ese año con el Equipo de Planeación del Evento Juvenil Episcopal (EYE), desde el primer viaje al monumento conmemorativo al Atentado de Oklahoma City hasta el instante en que yo estaba sobre el escenario de la Universidad de Oklahoma Central, contándole a todos sobre esa historia. Me hizo sentir humilde y al mismo tiempo muy impactante escuchar a la gente aplaudir y ovacionar mientras hablaba. Pero lo que más recuerdo es lo que sucedió apenas bajé del escenario luego de haber recitado Alabanza una vez más. Recuerdo a mi hermana, quien fue la razón por la cual me inscribí al equipo de planeación. Recuerdo cómo me abrazó mientras lloraba con lágrimas de felicidad, agotamiento y orgullo. Recuerdo cómo mi familia del equipo EYE se me acercó mientras yo me secaba las lágrimas y seguía llorando. Recuerdo a la delegación de Hawaii que se acercó a mí para regalarme un libro de oración escrito en hawaiano y un collar hawaiano, que todavía tengo colgado en la pared en mi casa. Recuerdo cuando escuché que mis palabras inspiraban a otros luego de que todos salimos de Oklahoma puesto que escuché mis palabras otra vez en Minnesota. Era una manifestación directa y muy verdadera de puro afecto, algo que llegó a mí cuando más lo necesitaba.Cuando escucho la palabra afecto, pienso en los niños y ahora que el perro Zach está también aquí, pues también pienso en los perros. Pienso en los niños y en su capacidad para amarlo todo y a todos aquellos con los que se encuentran. Pienso en el amor entre padres e hijos. En este día, cuando el amor me hace pensar en cómo las familias que tienen mi apariencia están pasando por un sistema legal de controles y cuentas que ha sido diseñado para que sientan temor y opresión. Cómo detienen a los niños de piel trigueña en campos de internamiento debido a su nacionalidad, debido a su latinidad y al color de su piel. La gente ve las acciones de nuestros líderes y se quedan horrorizados y atónitos y para describir esto lo califican de algo impropio de los Estados Unidos. Lamento no estar de acuerdo. Si hemos de rectificar estas acciones, los estadounidenses deben reconciliarse con la realidad de nuestra historia, una historia que se celebró con juegos pirotécnicos hace tan solo unos días. Es sobre cómo nuestra agricultura fue desarrollada y cómo las ciudades fueron construidas por el esfuerzo de los negros; cómo nuestro primer presidente, aquel revolucionario, era dueño de hombres y mujeres negros. Es sobre cómo el presidente a quien se le acredita liberar a los esclavos, también ejecutó a 38 dakotas por el hecho de proteger sus tierras ancestrales. Es sobre cómo el gobierno ha separado a los niños latinos y a los niños indígenas de sus familias a través de escuelas con régimen de internado y la Repatriación Mexicana. Es sobre cómo el hogar de los libres y de los valientes es el hogar de los encarcelados y de los colonizadores. Es sobre cómo le hemos negado a la gente de color su humanidad en beneficio del temor de los blancos. Esta nueva manifestación del temor de los blancos es tan solo el episodio más reciente de una larga historia de racismo y violencia en los Estados Unidos. Les negamos nuestra pregonada libertad a los latinos que cruzan las fronteras artificiales, ¿por qué razón? ¿Acaso porque ellos tenían diferentes colonizadores? ¿Acaso porque sus raíces y ramas indígenas no pueden quitarse de la cultura? En este momento, nuestros líderes de la Iglesia están visitando el Centro de Detención de Hutton, Edificio 40, a solo minutos de aquí. Yo los aplaudo por eso y espero que las mentalidades se cambien y que la gente apropiada se sienta vigorizada para realizar un cambio. Un buen hombre una vez me dijo que el mejor trabajo viene desde una posición de rabia. Entonces yo digo, que su rabia traiga justicia y que traiga paz a esas familias latinas que deben ver a sus hijos que están detenidos por los agentes de inmigración (ICE) en jaulas. Que nuestra rabia seque las lágrimas de los rostros trigueños y que se pueda empezar un procedimiento para desmontar las instituciones xenófobas que continúan creciendo. Que nuestra rabia inspire y que tal vez cree algo nuevo.Mi padre me ha contado historias de su padre. Mi abuelo fue un hombre con el suficiente valor para venir a este país desde Ciudad de México. Nos contó las historias de mi abuelo que vivía atemorizado de las autoridades de inmigración y atemorizado también de la pobreza que había dejado atrás. Mi abuela, mi Nana, también cruzó aquel desierto para seguir a su esposo. Lo hizo por sus tres hijos para que pudieran tener una vida mejor que cualquiera que les pudiera ofrecer allá en México. Como chicano, estoy agradecido por la valentía de mi padre y mis abuelos para cruzar la frontera para lograr oportunidades, oportunidades económicas, oportunidades para educarnos y también oportunidades en la sociedad para mí y mi hermana. Y como chicano, al ver a esas familias que sufren en manos de ICE y el temor de los nativistas, me pone furioso, porque yo sé de dónde vengo.Yo soy el producto de la unidad por la vía de la opresión, de alcohólicos y de foráneos.Yo soy un hijo de la revolución y de aventureros que han enfrentado desiertos y despliegues militares.Estoy a millones de pasos desde la pobreza hasta una promesa rota de oportunidades.Yo soy un astronauta que anhela liberar a los niños de sus jaulas y llevarlos a una aventura entre las estrellas de las que nuestros ancestros contaban historias, para mostrarles aquel lugar donde la Tierra se curva y el cielo y el mar se encorvan entre sí como la luna y sus estrellas.Yo lo soy y también lo son ellos. Y estamos Aquí para Quedarnos.Y tal vez no les guste lo que tengo que decir. Quizás ustedes me ven como otro energúmeno chico de piel trigueña que no tiene motivo para hablar a la Iglesia de esta manera. Sin embargo, si leen las Escrituras para el día de hoy, si escuchan esos textos, verán que éste es nuestro llamado. Ezequiel dice: “Y ya sea que te hagan caso o no (…) sabrán que ha habido un profeta en medio de ellos.” ¡Atención! Yo no creo que soy un profeta, pero me han dado esta extraordinaria oportunidad de hablar a esta Iglesia, de hablar como un joven chicano, como una persona de color, que al observar esta Iglesia puede ver lo que puede llegar a ser. Debemos estar dispuestos a cambiarnos a nosotros mismos y a nuestras instituciones si hemos de crear el cambio en nuestro mundo.En sus tiempos difíciles, esta Iglesia me ha traído estrés y desilusión, y el año pasado he estado ante el reto de reconsiderar cómo veo la religión, la espiritualidad y cómo las dos se intersecan. Dicho esto, yo no sigo en la Iglesia porque ame o tema a Dios. Yo no sigo en la Iglesia porque quiera complacer Dios. Yo no sigo en la Iglesia porque piense que es un pasaporte al cielo o cualquier promesa de salvación. Yo no sigo en la Iglesia porque piense que necesito inclinarme ante Dios. Yo sigo en la Iglesia debido a esas relaciones que se han creado y se han madurado por el afecto puro. Yo sigo en la Iglesia por hombres como Randy Callendar, Frank Sierra, Luis González, Anthony Guillen, Jesse Villegas y Broderick Greer. Yo sigo en la Iglesia por mujeres como Grace Ahern, Nancy Fraustro, Ariana González-Bonillas, Luisa Bonillas, Bronwyn Clark Skov, Valerie Harris y Christi Cunningham. Yo sigo en la Iglesia por el aroma de Standing Rock y el frío sereno de Harle Lawn durante la oración de la noche. Yo sigo en la Iglesia por esa manera como se ven las estrellas desde las sillas mecedoras de Kanuga. Yo sigo en la Iglesia por los libros de oración hawaianos y Sandra Montes y su música. Yo sigo en la Iglesia por las resoluciones que apoyan la libertad de la opresión aprobada por el estado. Yo sigo en la Iglesia por aquella historia que Anthony me contó la primera noche que estuve aquí, sobre cómo los Ministerios Latinos pasaron de una publicación de dos páginas a ser el criterio de referencia para los ministerios grupales. Yo sigo en la Iglesia porque la lucha no ha terminado. Yo sigo en la Iglesia porque tenemos una plataforma para lograr un cambio real y para hablar por aquellos que han sido silenciados. Tenemos una voz poderosa, una poética y amorosa voz que puede ver los problemas de este mundo y está dispuesta a enfrentarse a ellos. Así pues, utilicemos esa voz profética. Amén.

Giant House in Oiso is a house for a young couple allocated in a residential area near the sea in Oiso. The site is quite large for living by two persons, and their wish was very simple, to have one big space besides a small master bedroom. We explore in this project “the bigness” beyond an ordinary big room by carefully reading the context of the site, laying out and shaping the volume of the house, creating the intermediate space as extension of both public and private, and selecting materials to enforce all of those intentions.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Takumi OtaAvoiding the typical layout of a house in long plot facing the northern road in Japan, which is squarish full wide volume in the center dividing carport and garden on south, we placed a slender full depth volume in the site. By stretching the circulation in full depth of the site we intended to let people walk through the site automatically and perceive physically the size of it. Also as the site is at the end of T-junction, we shifted the volume to east and kept the west half as void space which is extended line of the road in order not to retain the air and wind flow, and to let the road extend into the site allowing the house to make more contact to the public.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSimultaneously we put the biggest roof possible by law over the site including the void space on west, so that the void space is not only the extension of public space but also the extension of interior private space. The overlap of the translucent roof and the garden creates the interactive space which can accommodate diverse usage such as dining, reading, hammocking, bathing, playing ball, etc.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!Section and ElevationSave this picture!© Takumi OtaWhen you enter inside and look right from a bit closed and dim entrance, you find at the end of the corridor a bright main living space with high ceiling that is over 5m at the highest point. At the opposite side, when you go up to the stairs, there is the master bedroom at the intermediate level, then the study/guest room where the dynamic lattice wood framework of the roof is just in front of your view. When you look over the living room from the second floor which has pitched low ceiling like a loft, you feel the bigness and generosity of the air volume of the main space even more.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe exterior roof consists of H-shaped steel columns, laminated pine lumber beams, and polycarbonate roofing. By minimizing the member of pillars, we made blur the boundary of the garden between with and without the roof. In contrast, we chose lumber to make the beam depth big to keep a good balance between open-air and intimate atmosphere beneath. For interior, we selected light gray finishes in order that people could perceive its abstract geometry, natural light gradually varying through time, and the scenery coming in from outside most beautifully.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaProject gallerySee allShow lessLEEDO SAU Coffee / ATMOROUNDSelected ProjectsLochten Sustainable Micro Neighbourhood / Urban PlatformSelected Projects Share Area:  140 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Manufacturers: AutoDesk, DAIPLA, DAIPLA Corporation, JFE, Rhinoceros Photographs:  Takumi Ota Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941271/giant-house-in-oiso-fumiko-takahama-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeFumiko Takahama ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYokohamaOn InstagramOn FacebookJapanPublished on June 09, 2020Cite: “Giant House in Oiso / Fumiko Takahama Architects” 09 Jun 2020.

Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fields

first_img By Gary Truitt – Aug 19, 2015 Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fields SHARE Previous articleGarrett Lowes is Indiana Showmanship Grand ChampionNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Day 3 of the Pro Farmer Crop Tour goes from Bloomington, Illinois to Iowa City, Iowa on Wednesday. You can ride right along with the scouts all this week by following the tour online at www.ProFarmer.com. You can also keep track of the progress on twitter with #pftour15 (hashtag p f tour 15). Home Indiana Agriculture News Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fields The final numbers for Indiana came in at 142.94 bushels to the acre for corn and 1093.08 pods of soybeans in a 3 foot by 3 foot square.   Once the tour crossed the border into Illinois, the variability leveled out.  Jarrod Hudson, a DuPont Pioneer Field Agronomist for the central part of The Land of Lincoln, said crops in his area have seen its fair share of challenges, “We had a lot of rain early but, since about the first of July, the rain has shut off. Our corn looks good, but the big question is how big are those holes in the field.”center_img Facebook Twitter SHARE The eastern leg of the Pro Farmer Crop Tour moved across Central Indiana on Tuesday. Ty Higgins, traveling with the tour, reports extreme crop variability continued across most of Indiana — not only wide ranges in yield potential, but even in crop development. Scouts reported yield estimates as low as 46.4 bpa in Allen County, 84 bpa in Wells County, and 96 bpa in Adams County. Many saw evidence of lack of maturity, with one scout finding corn that wasn’t even waist high. This field in Indiana came it at an estimated 120.4 bpa.© Ben PotterStops in Central Indiana showed some crop improvement. One field in Grant County earned an estimate of 200 bpa, and a stop in Boone County showed some good soybeans. Higgins reported, “The soybeans were recently shot with an herbicide and also recently got a shot of rain. Disease and pest pressures continue to be low; and this first was not only taller, but had a good number of pods on the plants. Our corn yield calculation is 184 and our pod count in a 3 x 3 square is 1073.”  But, he told HAT that the next stop in the same county produced much different results, “Although this corn looked good from the road, the middle part we sampled was awful to say the least. Almost 50% of the field was waist high due to excess rains, so our yield guess of 14 is not a stretch. On the other side of the road were some of the nicest soybeans I have seen this week. The combination of tall plants and pods from top to bottom gave this field a 1458 pod count in a 3 x 3 foot square.”In Montgomery County, the tour ran into a little rust and frog eye on the soybeans. “Our pod count was 823. The corn was planted in 20 inch rows and the health of the field was very good. A nice change from our previous stop. 178 bushels per acre is our estimate here,” said  Higgins. In Clinton County, the tour found another short crop, “Population in this field was decent and will help this field make 165 bushels this fall. The bean field was bad and getting worse. Some plants were beginning to shut down and the disease pressure was strong. The 2 pods below were from the same row. The pod count here was 755.”  The crew estimated corn yields in Tippecanoe County at 165 bpa and Warren County at 175 bpa. Reports from the Western arm of the tour were at the other end of the spectrum. The crops in Eastern Nebraska looked good but, as scout Matt Bennett reports, some disease pressure has been noticed, “Disease pressure on our last stop: Green Leaf Syndrome, Northern Corn Leaf Blight, anthracnose, and lodging. Going to need to pick this early.” Paul Neiffer, The Farm CPA, who is also scouting on the western leg, says yield estimates have been holding slightly above the three-year average for the tour, but he has yet to find any 200 bpa corn on his route. The Nebraska corn yield average was put at 165 bpa. Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fieldslast_img read more

Ohio State Partnership with Purdue Important to New Dean

first_img SHARE Ohio State Partnership with Purdue Important to New DeanThe new dean of the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) at The Ohio State University is bringing a wealth of experience to the position. Dr. Cathann Kress says, from her time at the Department of Defense, to time spent as an extension educator in Iowa will be what she draws on as she takes the reins at Ohio State. And, she says, while there are plenty of challenges, there are some things that will continue, including the partnership with Purdue University.“I know the people at Purdue very well, the Extension Director Jason Henderson, Renee McKee who is with their 4-H program, know them all well and have great respect for their work. And the more collaborations and partnerships we have across the land grant university system and extension I think the greater benefit for the people who live in our state,” Kress said.Dr. Kress will officially begin as Dean on May 1.

HR consultant

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. HR consultantOn 21 May 2002 in Personnel Today A ‘leap into the dark’ mentality may sound like a job requirement for aparatrooper, but the ability and courage to take personal risks in uncertaincircumstances is equally as applicable to would-be HR consultants. Whether you’re setting up on your own or joining a large consultancy youwill be entering a hard-headed business world where bonuses and targets have amajor importance and the flow of work is largely dependent on one person alone:you. And while some HR departments may view consultancy as a cushy number, thereality couldn’t be further from the truth. Along with securing work,consultants have to establish themselves in a fiercely competitive market. Thismeans not only keeping up to speed with the latest HR trends, but to undertakeextra training where necessary as well as exploiting contacts to secure as muchwork as possible. But more than anything, says Richard Chiumento, head of theChiumento Consulting Group, your feet need to be planted firmly on the ground.”If I had to give one bit of advice to new consultants it would be: ‘Don’tunderestimate the difficulty of becoming a successful consultant; the vastmajority fail.’” For some consultants these business skills may take time to perfect.However, time is not a commodity consultants have in abundance. A successfulconsultant is usually one who can combine the ability to produce good work withthe economic imperative of securing further employment. And for those who arenew to consultancy, these contacts can often be in short supply and quicklyexhausted. Julie Holden, owner of Spring Consultancy, describes consultancy as “ajuggling act between delivering a service and wondering where your next clientis”. As well as being able to think on your feet, you have to be a good marketeer-both to sell your skills and deliver on your promise and that you will do itbetter than any rival consultancy. This will involve researching the companyyou are working for – studying financial reports, and analysing the companyculture to identify where help is most needed and how best to operate withinthe company structure. As Ian Florence, director of ASE Consulting, points out:”You need to understand the company you’re working for. Consulting is allabout understanding an organisation’s needs, defining a solution for them thatworks and demonstrating the benefits of that solution.” The 2001 Review by the Management Consultants Association indicates that 96per cent of clients prefer to have some form of relationship. Those that haveexperienced first hand your ability to produce good work on deadline are farmore likely to refer you to their colleagues and associates. Even when these clients move on, they are likely to retain your servicesshould the need arise some time in the future. John Baker, head of practice atrecruitment consultancy Macmillan Davies Hodes, says: “It’s a relationshipbusiness. Once you have clients who know and trust you they will come back,whoever they are working for.” It is because of this fluctuating nature that an HR consultant’s averageearnings are difficult to calculate. Starting out a consultant could charge aslittle as £150 a day. At the top end of the scale consultants can expect toearn a minimum of £100,000 a year. And for some the rewards are far, far higher– to hire the consulting services of one leading management guru is in theregion of £100,000 a day. Quite simply, an HR consultant could earn as much astheir reputation, experience and work ethic permits. But consultancy is not all working at the leading-edge of HR. There is amore mundane side to the job – knowing how to run a business as well as keepingup with self-employment regulations. There can also be financial pitfalls. Along with having to shoulder theexpense of paying for office equipment and technology (tax deductible ofcourse), you could have to wait several months for fees which may presentdifficulties with cash flow. Above all, you have to be determined, and have an unwavering belief in yourabilities. As Sue Wotruba, a senior consultant at Penna Change Consulting, points out:”A consultant has to be completely self-sufficient as they may have tomake lots of decisions at short notice, sometimes in the middle of nowhere, andproduce work of a very high standard.” Case study Richard Chiumento, director of Chiumento Consulting GroupRichard Chiumento founded the Chiumento Consulting Group 10 years ago. Ithas since become one of the UK’s leading HR consultancies with 100 HRconsultants and 300 HR interim managers on its books.Chiumento began in HR in the early 1970s, moving into consultancy nearly 20years ago. Now dividing his time between Chiumento’s offices in Oxford andLondon he has been involved in major projects within financial services,manufacturing and the electronics sector. The consultancy has recently securedone of the largest HR outplacement and restructuring assignments ever – a dealthat will take six years to complete.Specialising in change management and management restructuring, Chiumentobelieves that successful consultancy stems from advising HR to develop and growtheir businesses in a commercially sensitive way. His guiding ethos is to keepthings simple and avoid overcomplication.He also stresses the need to develop an understanding with clients.”Successful consultancy is all about building relationships,” hesays, and developing trust is a key element of this. With new clients Chiumentoadvises that you both promise and deliver on something that’s relatively easyto measure. “A lot of HR people are nervous of taking risks when an HRconsultant is new,” he says. “You have to take something small thatcan be tested and prove how effective you are.” By concentrating on thesesmall building blocks Chiumento believes he has developed relationships basedon mutual trust that encourage clients to use his services wherever they happento be working.Along with building trust, Richard Chiumento also sets out to present asprofessional an image as possible, focusing on punctuality, smart appearanceand frequent communication with clients. Through this he believes he hasdeveloped a client-centred brand image that makes it clear what the consultancystands for and what it can deliver.”To be a successful consultant you have to manage your time well, keepyour finger on the pulse of the industry, help others to manage themselves andkeep your promises. But you also have to develop a valuable and client-centredbrand that makes it clear to everyone what you stand for and exactly what youcan deliver,” he says.last_img read more
