Why leadership? Because our profession is over-managed and under-led. Leading a CPA firm is like “herding cats.” Acquire a foundation in leadership theory and gain skills to drive superior firm and departmental performance.

Knowledge workers are not managed—they are led and more effectively guided. Effective firm leaders develop superior professionals, enjoy less stress and maintain a better quality of life. Additionally, cover topics that address how effective leaders: balance long-term objectives with current realities, clearly communicate core objectives and values, motivate others to perform at high levels and remove barriers that constrain others.
