Culture Is Organic, Not Imposed

photoI believe that CPA firm partners and other leaders should explore, guide and enhance the culture of their accounting firm but avoid imposing culture from the top down.

As a firm leader, you should be concerned about your culture because if you don’t work to identify it and enhance it, it can grow completely on its own and it might not be something you like.

Your culture will attract people and retain people. That’s something you mission statement or company vision probably won’t do.

Great people contribute to a great culture so my advice is to hire the best. And, yes, a bad apple can spoil the whole barrel.
