Reading About Leadership

2.0are

I have been reading a book titled, Leadership 2.0 by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves.

Here’s a passage that I want to impress upon CPA firm leaders. It’s something especially important when you are promoted to a leadership role.

What you can accomplish now and in the future has everything to do with what you can accomplish through others. It’s just not about you anymore.

Leaders who aren’t privy to this guidance early enough in their careers head down one of three possible paths:

  1. Micromanaging because they don’t trust anyone but themselves.
  2. Trying to be a superhero by being the only one who can save the day
  3. Trying to be a one-man or one-woman show because they seek all the glory.

If you are undertaking a more advanced leadership role in your firm, seek out a mentor, one that will hold you accountable – not one that just takes you to lunch to chat.
