Episode 8 of our Inspired Ideas Podcast series features a discussion between Brianna Johnson, ConvergenceCoaching consultant, and Aaron Ackerman, Partner at HoganTaylor, and a graduate of our Transformational Leadership Program™ (TLP).

In this episode, Brianna and Aaron explore the original goals and progression of what started as Aaron’s TLP project - weaving business development into his firm’s cultural fabric and helping all employees learn how they can play a part. They also discuss HoganTaylor’s consulting practice and how the firm is creating growth by providing value-added services for clients. Listen in for ideas about making the shift toward more advisory services and getting your people involved in the rainmaking game.
