Course Description

There is no time like the present to evaluate your firm’s inner workings and maybe even switch up your routine.

Are your staff and clients happy?

Are you fostering a work environment where staff feels energized, supported, and are growth opportunities available to them?

There is no doubt that the biggest hurdle faced by CPA partners is seasoned and new partners and that brings the challenges around leadership. which are understandably exacerbated by the unique nuances that exist within a shareholder group. Of note is how the accounting profession rewards good performance.

CPA professionals are promoted into roles of management for which they have no, or little training and, in some cases interest.

An average firm’s environment consists of a vast array of different types of people with a variety of skillsets, beliefs, opinions, and personalities. Perhaps we wouldn’t normally CHOOSE to spend so much time with each other but for the fact that we are all members of the same team.  A successful leader is able to bring together all members on the same path toward a well-formed outcome that serves the greater good for all (the firm, its professionals, and clients, too).

Key topics covered in this online CPE webinar:

  • How do leaders serve as visionaries?
  • Why leaders are delegators?
  • How do leaders inspire others?
  • How do leaders handle conflict?
  • How do the leaders bring change?
  • When should leaders listen?
  • What are the most important areas of leadership development?

In this online CPE webinar Lisa Tierney, CLSC, and Executive Life Strategies Coach with over 20 years of experience working with CPAs will share with you the lessons learned to help you develop into the best leader you can be so you can improve your vision and enhance your firm’s culture to ensure you thrive.
