What is a Trusted Advisor?

Effective leaders in organizations have a confidante, someone who can listen, who can be trusted, who is objective, and who can offer useful advice or personal service. A trusted Advisor lends an outside perspective, offers key support to executive personnel to enhance leadership judgment, illuminates blind spots, and directs them to explore new ideas to discover critical solutions and navigate issues to create success within organizations.

“A Trusted Advisor is the person the client turns to when an issue first arises, often in times of great urgency: a crisis, a change, a triumph, or a defeat.” The Trusted Advisor By Angus Strachan, PhD.
