I'm the kind of person who tends to procrastinate. Even though I don't procrastinate, I tend to spend time planning, thinking, and structuring my projects. My previous role was in account management in banking, and I came to realize my characteristic clearly since my boss was the total opposite type. He used to be a trader, so his decision was instant, fast, and efficient. Based on this experience, I understood my working style and personal characteristic is totally different from him, and I kind of enjoy thinking into details and spend time planning. I am thinking about how to make a good balance - my personal characteristic/work style vs. being fast and efficient.
Now I'm transferring into a consulting career, I am thinking of this topic. Does the personal characteristic really matter? I'm thinking of how to change my characteristic and habit, and try to be a person that can make quick decisions. I'd also like to know how to improve the time & project management skill that a consultant needs? It seems that this skill could only be trained on the job, but I'm keen to listen to any advice! Thanks a lot!
