Part two of this lesson will deal with transforming from a practitioner to an advisor and what that implies. Often, a practitioner with in depth or wide-ranging experience is selected to be an advisor. He or she has gained extensive experience over the years in problem-solving, addressing issues, making trade-offs and compromises, and observing the impacts and challenges that his or her own organisation may have faced. This technical expertise, added to the personal attributes discussed in part 1, can lead to effective advising. However, in order to be fully effective, an advisor will also have to make a mindset shift from a doer to a supporter. This section will deal with the various mindset shifts that need to occur when taking on the role of an advisor.
