Resumo: To date, little research has yet focused in broad assessment for management consultancy professionals. This investigation aims to analysemanagement consultants’ self-perceptions of occupational stress (SPoOS), sources of stress (SoS) and stress management strategies (SMS) and to find latent constructs that can work as major determinants in consultants’ conceptualization of SPoOS, SoS and SMS. Measures were completed, including demographics and interviews. Complete data were available for 39 management consultants, 53.8% male and aged between 23 and 56 years (M=38.0; SD=9.2). The data were subjected to content analysis. Representation of the associations and latent constructs were analysed by a multiple correspondence analysis. Results indicated that ‘intellectual disturber’ (31.4%) was the most referred SPoOS, ‘high workload’ (15.1%) was identified as the most prevalent perceived SoS and ‘coaching’ (19.0%) was the most mentioned SMS. No significant differences between the two gender groups were found regarding the three total scores. SPoOS was explained by a two-factor model: ‘organization-oriented’ and ‘person-oriented’. A three-dimension model formed by ‘job concerns’, ‘organizational constraints’ and ‘career expectations’ was indicated as a best-fit solution for SoS, and SMS was best explained in a three-dimension model by ‘group dynamics strategies’, ‘organizational culture strategies’ and ‘individual support strategies’. This research makes a unique contribution for a better understanding of what defines SPoOS, SoS and SMS for management consultants.
