Consulting magazine has named Casey Baldwin, a Senior Manager with Cognizant Business Consulting, among the 2016 Rising Stars of the Profession for Excellence in Human Resources.
The 2016 Rising Stars of the Profession is Consulting magazine’s annual look at consultants under the age of 35 who are making the biggest impact and redefining the consulting profession.
“His deep knowledge of complex business transformation issues has made him a trusted advisor with significant clients where he has led a team of seven consultants providing change management solutions in areas such as: stakeholder engagement, communications strategy and training in execution of systems enhancement across multiple divisions of a large healthcare company,” the magazine notes in a feature titled Thirty Five Under 35.
“In professional services, the solution to a difficult problem is table stakes,” says Baldwin. “The service component of our jobs is what separates the good from the adequate.” According to Baldwin, what excites him the most about his consulting career is “the opportunity to constantly see new industries, functions, and challenges ― and then add those experiences to my bag of tools to take to the next client.”
He says that simply being considered a peer of the men and women he works with and deeply respects is what he considers his greatest achievement. “Every time I can act as a sounding board when they are working through their challenges, just as I go to them for help when I need another perspective,” he says. “I’ve had great coaching. Mentors who taught me how to do good work, but also explained the purpose and context behind what we do.”
