Who Has Your Back?

In so many successful firms, the managing partner has a strong, right-hand person. Sure, they have managers and staff to handle client work but they also have a professional firm administrator to handle daily operations and to bring timely trends and ideas (best practices) from other firms to the attention of the managing partner.

I have always seen the firm administrator role as one of influence rather than one of power. There are also other great influencer roles in CPA firms that are not partner roles.

Guy Gage recently did a great blog post – The Passenger Seat Matters – he explains that there are three roles that must be filled in order to be successful. The driver, the back-seat and the passenger┬áseat – be sure to read it, I think you will really enjoy it.
