One of the most important things is to be able to work well with other people. You have to be able to get along with, listen to, speak to, and handle other people in order to consult. Another equally important quality needed to consult is having a service -oriented personality. Even though you are constantly working with other people as a consultant, leadership skills and the ability to come up with ideas of your own and use logical reasoning. There are a few other basic skills, but necessary to the nob. You must have great writing skills, business acumen, presentation skills, and basic computer skills.
