AG Consulting Partners is proud to share this post by Management Consultant, Nick Johnson, and congratulates him on a successful first year on our team.
October 8th will mark my one-year anniversary at AG Consulting Partners. As I reflect upon this year, I’m proud of the many career milestones I’ve hit—three client projects, joining the Management Consulting Workforce as a Consultant, and the construction of an internal tool to measure employee engagement. Yet, none of these achievements are fully mine to bear. They’re also the achievements of the team that continues to support me.
I was recently reminded of that fact when, trying to meet a client deadline, I did something that I’ve struggled to do my whole life—I asked for help. Instantly, I had a team of three at my disposal to delegate tasks, and within a matter of hours, we produced a flawless client deliverable.
In moments like these, I’m so humbled to be a part of such an incredible team of smart, diligent, and thoughtful people. It goes without saying that to be successful at AG Consulting Partners, it’s essential to be a team player. If you help rally for your teammates, the favor will be repaid when most needed.
In a recent article in Harvard Business Review on the Power of Hidden Teams, researchers Marcus Buckingham and Ashely Goodall explain how two nurses, working the exact same job with the same long hours and stressors, in different departments have wildly different experiences. Fritz is burnt-out, working in siloed team, while Jordan works as part of an interdisciplinary team that comes together to choose the best health options for her patients.
Which nurse has the healthiest patients? Which nurse is happiest at work? You guessed it—Jordan.
This type of engaged, interdisciplinary team is our secret sauce and the harbinger of our success. Our clients love working with AGCP consultants and our consultants love working at AG Consulting Partners because of our team. We put our people first and in doing so, our people create exceptional client experiences.
Here’s to the amazing AGCP family who has helped me grow this past year. I can only hope I helped you grow too.
At AG Consulting Partners, we believe in taking care of our people first to enable them to bring their best to every client project.
