Invest In Your Managers

Simple message today.

I talk to so many firms that have basically permitted their managers to grow in years of experience…. from associate to manager … without any training, nurturing or mentoring on how to actually manage people. They are great CPAs/Accountants but actually drive many younger newcomers away from the firm.

Here’s a recent quote from Tom Peters:

“Suggested addition to your statement of Core Values: We are obsessed with developing a cadre of first-line managers that is second to none – we understand that this cadre per se is arguably one of our top two or three most important ‘Strategic Assets.'”

  • "Most of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get their work done."
  • Peter F. Drucker
