Advice to a pilgrim regarding travellers

An ancient Indian poem gives counsel to a pilgrim as to how to proceed when he encounters different travellers. The advice is still valid and consulting experience I know that they are completely correct.

The One Who is he therefore!
Does not know and does not, know that he does not know a poor thing does not appreciate a councel Show him your sympathy!
Does not know and knows, that he does not know a brooder will take a councel Instruct him!
Does not know and asserts, that he knows a fool will ignore a councel Get out of his way!
Knows and does not know, that he knows a sleeper does not need a counsel Wake him up!
Knows and asserts that, he does not know a sly dog will abuse a councel Beware of him!
Knows and knows that,he knows a prophet will give a councel Listen to him!

And the moral that follows from this wisdom that can be taken by consultants and consulting companies is:

Give advice to brooders and wake up sleepers! In the rest of the cases your consulting efforts will fall on deaf ears. Do not forget to listen humbly to wise prophets, though, for nobody is so perfect that they cannot learn a lesson!

To which OwnWay has to say the following:

Let us substitute advice with provision of possible ways to go. The ways that lead to further development, both professional and personal. It is up to the traveller which of the ways they are going to follow in their own lives. Such should be the basis of the modern consultancy business.

What is your experience like, consultants?

Not always they are obvious from the reporting, especially if the measurement systems are soft. The manager needs to keep their eyes open, taking into account every change, result, conclusion and communicating them to the others.
