Partners Are Not Exempt

“The price of greatness is responsibility.” – Winston Churchill

The days of partners being treated to special operational perks are gone.

Don’t allow partners to by-pass duties because they can’t use the software! There are┬ápartners who cannot use the Practice Management program to look at reports or to bill a client. There are partners who use the excuse that “it saves me time” for dodging responsibilities.

There is a fine line between proper delegation and abandonment.

In this digital age, partners cannot constantly be using excuses or using other people as crutches because they haven’t kept up with the advances in software and technology.

Partners should be doing partner-level work. I’m not talking about partners actually preparing tax returns using the software. Times have changed and a lot of partner-level work involves being able to use the firm’s technology tools.
