I was recently asked what specific things are professional services firms doing to develop leadership skills among their staff members?
I SAID: “What are the leadership skills that will take CPA firms to their next level of growth and achievement?” might be a better question.
In this case, leadership = empowerment.
CPA firm leaders should recognize the strengths of the team, acknowledge their areas for weakness, and motivate them to find their own way that they can contribute to the growth of the firm – i.e. through technical proficiency, business development, research, training of others, etc.
