Consensus developed an engagement composed of workshops and individual coaching sessions for the investment team. The workshops introduced a four-element framework for capitalizing on in-person meetings to forge client relationships. Customized, interactive exercises were used to reinforce the theoretical concepts and surface gaps in understanding. In the individual coaching sessions, each member of the investment team met with two Consensus professionals who offered feedback and advice on their particular improvement areas.
