Know It All

“The dumbest people I know are those who know it all.” – Malcolm Forbes

As a leader in your firm, you might think you have to know it all. Partners and managers cannot possibly know it all!

Of course, you have to understand the business of public accounting and how to obtain new clients and provide awesome service to your current ones.

You can never know all the answers. Some things will puzzle you. It is an on-going occurrence and it never ends. To be a skilled leader of people, you need help from others.

Adopt a coaching method of building relationships with your team. Ask for their input and insight and then listen. While you will never know it all, others will help you know a lot more!
