You would have thought that if more people cared the world would be a better place in which all that is in it can live. And work. And do note too that emphasis here was also placed on ‘all’. If, for example, managed care consultants were to be constrained by being selective across the board, this could have had a detrimental effect on the clientele they have elected to service. Or so you may have thought.
And no, it has an entirely opposite but positive effect. In commercial and industrial sectors, a degree of selectivity is a very good idea. It makes perfectly good business sense to be dealing with clients on the case by case basis. After all, each and every potential client out there should have his or her own unique set of qualities that allows his or her business and its related service deliveries to stand out and become a successful selling point to his or her clients in turn.
The work of managed care consultants can, in this caring theme’s context, be observed and remarked upon more stringently in all those sectors where margins of error need to be as slim as possible. And in some cases, albeit very few, the margin of error will be non-negotiable. Two industry sector examples can easily be brought up to emphasize this important point. The health services sector.
And the nuclear sector. And you can only imagine the potentially disastrous consequences of commercial and industrial consultancy work taking its proverbial eye off the ball even for a nanosecond. Think Chernobyl. And think heart failure or a complete nervous breakdown, literally speaking. And you have the picture. Indeed, the onus could fall on you as a business client to exercise care in your own selectivity.
