The Modern Trusted Advisor: Best Practices for High Value Executive Consultation


The Modern Trusted Advisor is insightful and practical and should become a new handbook for CEOs and trusted advisors to populate the world with inspiring leaders.” –Paul Wogan, CEO GasLog Ltd, Athens, GreeceIn this world of emerging technologies and global change, the role of trusted advisors, as brilliantly provided in this book, who lead with empathy, kindness, curiosity, and contextual advice has never been more important.” –Katie Dudtschak, Executive Vice President, RBC, Toronto CanadaNancy MacKay and Alan Weiss have produced a masterful book on the modern trusted advisor that every CEO, business owner, and advisor should read and heed! It’s ideal for these volatile times. Leaders at every level in the organization can also benefit, as they journey to become the trusted advisors of the future.” –Marshall Goldsmith, Author, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, Triggers, and over 40 other books

The best and the brightest use advisors and experts. In fact, one could say that they are the best and the brightest because they utilized trusted advisors throughout their careers.

Whether in business, sports, entertainment, academia, or politics, expert help is a fundamental enabler of success. That means that the demand for expert advice will grow and the competition will increase for such help. This isn’t a matter of “certificates” and “universities,” it’s a matter of specific skill and behavioral sets that create a trusting bond and reliance. Trusted advisors are beyond coaches—they are comprehensive resources and supporters.

The Modern Trusted Advisor employs important mastery traits, such as subordinating ego, applying shared experiences, and managing emotional, mental, and intellectual health. We are entering a world of “no normal” today and leaders must inspire others daily.

This is the book that prepares you to inspire those leaders.
