I knew very little about the accounting profession or CPAs before joining the ConvergenceCoaching® team and I didn’t even know that my family had a history with the profession.

Extroverted qualities like charisma, assertiveness, and outspokenness are widely accepted as synonymous with the traits of a great leader.

I Have a Dream
