DO A SWOT FOR YOURSELF

If you are a CPA firm leader reading this blog, I bet you really care about your team and your firm.

Many people in CPA firm management and administration are servant leaders.  You think of others first; the firm, the team members, the clients, etc.  That’s what makes you good at what you do.

Please don’t forget about yourself.  I bet your firm has done strategic planning of some sort that has involved a SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats).  The firm has a vision statement and has drafted core values or beliefs that everyone is expected to live by.

My question is, have you, as a leader in the firm, done this personally?  Take some time to contemplate your own personal SWOT and see what develops.  You might create a much better understanding of where you are going and how you are going to get there.
