From the Paper:

"During the initial phone contact between the consultant and the client, information was gathered as to an established date and time for the contracting meeting, the time (i.e., duration) allotted for the meeting, who would be attending, expectations regarding outcomes of the meeting and expectations concerning the potential outcomes of the project. As recommended by Block (1981; 2002), while this information was recognized as essential for planning the contract meeting, it also provided the consultant with the opportunity to begin to emphasize expectations regarding the "50/50" nature of the client-consultant relationship. Stumpf and Longman (2000) also stressed the importance of such a relationship in what they described as a partnership between the client and the consultant. As this type of relationship was the preferred choice of the consultant, an effort was made to convey the value in establishing a mutually beneficial and shared working relationship with the client."
