Fitness AND Fun

2019-11-13T12:04:03-06:00October 18th, 2019|Leadership, Personal Development|

This past weekend, I ran the Market To Market (M2M) relay with six other professional women. This was my fourth M2M, but my first as Team Captain. My prior team’s members transitioned out for a variety of reasons and I was faced with rebuilding the team from the ground up. Looking back, I feel so [...]

Strategies for “Giving In” To Change

2019-11-13T12:04:42-06:00August 16th, 2019|Leadership, Personal Development|

Change is hard.  But it’s all over us!  In our nation’s demographics, succession, mergers, technology and turnover, we’re experiencing change at a faster pace than ever before. As firm leaders, we must keep up to sustain our firms and ensure that they are attractive to NextGen clients and team members.  All too often, we see firms putting off needed changes for a variety of [...]

Breakthrough Your Conflict Barriers

2019-07-31T16:05:46-06:00July 31st, 2019|Communication, Leadership, Personal Development|

Whether it is owner disagreements, performance issues, client concerns, or competitive situations, our professional lives are filled with potential conflict. But given the choice, most will shy away or ignore conflict rather than deal with it. Why? Maybe because conflict isn’t fun – or even comfortable – and we’re not very sure we’ll handle it [...]

Finally, Under Five!

2019-11-01T17:18:46-06:00May 16th, 2019|Personal Development|

I’ve been a runner for 13 years.  And, for the last nearly five years, I have been pursuing the goal to run a full marathon in under five hours. In September 2015, I ran my first in 5:04 and in September 2016, I ran my second in a disappointing 5:07. After completing the 2nd marathon, [...]

You ARE Better Off Without Them!

2018-08-17T14:03:47-06:00August 17th, 2018|HR/Organizational Development, Leadership, Next Generation, Personal Development, Retention Strategies|

I recently wrote a column for the Journal of Accountancy CPA Insider, talking to employees that are unhappy in their work. In this blog, I am talking to firm leaders about how to deal with partners who may be some of the cause of that unhappiness.  I don’t know how many times I have had Managing [...]

Let’s Stop Paying Lip Service to People Development

2018-08-01T11:58:44-06:00August 1st, 2018|Leadership, Next Generation, Personal Development|

Working with leaders of firms in completely different geographies and of a variety of sizes, I continue to have discussions with them about slightly different yet completely related topics:  a lack of traction in a mentoring program, an inability to get engagement reviews completed by both staff and managers and concerns that a partner group [...]

Let Freedom Ring

2018-07-02T08:29:57-06:00July 2nd, 2018|Leadership, Personal Development|

I can’t believe another Independence Day is upon us. Wow!  Time again to reflect on our blessings as Americans. Earlier this year, I wrote about the three words I chose to guide 2018:  Change, Freedom and Joy.  Today, it seems appropriate to let Freedom ring in this 242nd birthday greeting to Lady Liberty. I’ve been [...]

Communicate to Drive Change

“Every time I find the meaning of life, they change it.”  ~ Reinhold Niebuhr Have you found the meaning of life?  If we each had to define our meaning, the meanings we’d interpret would be as diverse as our backgrounds, experiences and beliefs.  But no matter what you’re planning and expecting in this life, the one constant you [...]
