The Value Of Leadership
This week I am so fortunate to be able to spend a couple of days at the AICPA offices in NYC with some of the most progressive minds in CPA firm management.
The New Horizon Group has a long history of serving the CPA profession. I have been a member for nearly 15 years (and was the first female to be invited!). The faces have changed over the years but the content of our discussions still in enriching to all of us. Our goal is to simply help CPAs, in public practice, be the best they can be.
Yesterday, Allan Koltin shared an important trend – In the last decade, he has seen the perceived value of leadership/management in CPA firms go up greatly. Partners really understand that it is a business and are showing much more appreciation for the managing partner and other management leaders. For high performing firms, size doesn’t matter. If they let the CEO truly run the business, they all make more money.
New Horizon Group Members are: Jim Bourke, Sue Coffey, Gale Crosley, Chris Frederiksen, Carl George, Angie Grissom, Rita Keller, Roman Kepczyk, Allan Koltin, Jim Metzler, Marc Rosenberg and Jennifer Wilson.
