The philosophy behind foundational skills in counseling is that it is essential in establishing a trusting and adherent relationship with the client. Foundational skills such as listening, being empathetic, and silence are all tools to become more understanding of the client’s situation.

When a corporate raider infiltrated Teletech Corporation by acquiring a 10% stake in the firm, management was forced to contemplate whether their evaluative models and tools appropriately matched (pg. 217). With a mission statement professing a commitment to pursue premium returns, the objective focus on value maximization is seemingly simple (pg. 220).
