We rely on Convergence extensively for partner coaching, firm retreats and strategic planning, training through webinars and workshops as well as their TLP and leadership development offerings.

  • We engaged ConvergenceCoaching to facilitate leadership development learning for a group of our managers. Convergence did an excellent job for our firm. They presented content and shared tools that were directly relevant to our future leaders including conflict resolution, people development, management skills and leading a practice area. The focus on how to motivate, engage, and develop people was exactly where our people needed instruction the most. Their presentation materials were great, and the combination of lecture and practice/case studies was very effective.

  • At the start of my TLP journey, I underwent a revealing 360° assessment process that showed me how I am perceived as a leader. I realized that being more compassionate and understanding where others are coming from helps me to better connect with coworkers and clients. Today, I’m more intentional about both listening to and caring about others’ problems and concerns and working towards a mutually beneficial solution. In my TLP journey I have become a more vulnerable leader which will help me be a stronger Principal and asset to my firm as we strive to engage and retain a pipeline of future leaders.

Transformational Leadership Program™ (TLP)

The TLP is designed to take your new and future leaders to their next level of success in leading others and your firm. Throughout the intensive one-year program, participants engage in the following:

  • In-depth assessments including a 360 self-examination, input from their superiors, staff, and peers, and a personality assessment designed to heighten the participant’s self-awareness and aid in identifying strengths and areas for growth and development
  • Two mandatory, 2-day, workshop experiences where they will learn specific leadership, communication, management, people, and business development skills and build career-long peer networking relationships.*
  • Online self-study and instructor-led interactive webinars that provide year-round learning opportunities
  • Tailored one-on-one coaching sessions for both the participant and their in-firm coach or advisor conducted by our leading CPA profession and behavioral experts designed to keep the process honest, accountable, and rewarding
  • A special project of their choice where they will be responsible for a specific, measurable result that will benefit the participant and your firm.

Participants can expect to invest a minimum of 60 hours during the twelve-month program if they take advantage of all the learning and coaching opportunities available to them (excluding travel time, if applicable, and time to develop and implement the difference-making project they choose). The participant's in-firm coach can expect to invest a minimum of 16 hours in the program, through participating in an assessment of the participant, three coaching calls with the participant and their assigned Convergence Coach, supporting and mentoring their participant through their program goals and special project, and holding 30-minute monthly check-ins.

*COVID-19 Update: The ConvergenceCoaching team has been carefully watching the progression of COVID-19 and monitoring the advice of the CDC for traveling and meeting in large groups to help us make a decision about the format of upcoming workshops. At this time, based on CDC guidance, we are excited to return to in-person for TLP workshop 1 events, beginning with our 2022-23 programs. Workshops are a mandatory component of the TLP; therefore, participants should be prepared to travel and participate in-person.

Participant and facilitator safety remains our #1 priority. As each workshop approaches, we will continue monitoring CDC guidelines related to COVID-19 and will implement appropriate safety guidelines as needed. And, if in-person gatherings are no longer recommended by the CDC, we will shift the workshop to a remote format over Zoom.

  • If I were to choose one word to describe my TLP experience, it would be intentionality. As I have progressed as a leader, I am more intentional about where I serve on committees, my practice development efforts and my client focus. A significant result is the culmination of my TLP project and the launch of KSM’s Tax Academy. This project provided a consistent forum for learning and internal networking for our tax team and increased visibility and deeper relationships across the firm for me. Because of the TLP, I approach opportunities with more genuine self-confidence and strive to work at my highest and best use, elevating my contribution to the firm.

Rainmaker Development Program® (RDP)

The ability to develop business is a skill that most firms seek in their future leaders. It is also the one area in which most professionals feel least developed or experienced. With the emergence of the global pandemic, the abundance of client opportunity, and capacity challenges in most firms, many professionals are reticent to sell new services. The RDP is designed to develop the confidence and skills to develop new business by first identifying the right clients and services for their practice area so they feel they are clear which business to accept so they can effectively manage capacity.

If you have a group of professionals who wish to become better business developers, consider incorporating our Rainmaker Development Program® (RDP) into your learning programs. This program provides a mix of learning and “real life” experiential activities to build real skills in personal marketing and business development. Our program focuses on developing your sphere of influence and managing prospects in a virtual environment, in addition to a traditional face-to-face environment.

Our standard program entails six interactive webinars that teach participants critical personal marketing and business development concepts. Between webinars, your RDP participants will be tasked to complete assignments with support from an in-firm coach who they identify, reporting their progress by a specific date. In each subsequent webinar, we discuss challenges and successes, learn the material for the next concept and agree on a new assignment to facilitate real learning and progress. It's imperative that participants in the RDP are given the time to attend the 2-hour sessions and complete their homework so they truly apply and develop the skills they are learning. They can plan to dedicate 8-10 hours a month to the RDP, which will also help them incorporate these activities and time to business development when they complete the program.

The topics covered in our standard RDP include the following:

  • Developing as a Rainmaker
  • Making a Bigger Difference for Your Clients
  • Building Your Sphere of Influence
  • Qualifying Opportunities For Success
  • Sales Strategies to Close More Business
  • Furthering Your Target Accounts And Building Thought Leadership

To view the full description of the content of each interactive webinar, click here. The cost to participate in the RDP is $2,995 per person, including CPE credit.

Individual coaching for RDP participants by a ConvergenceCoaching coach can optionally be included in your firm’s program. If you would like to learn more about the program or the possibility of facilitating a custom in-firm RDP, please contact us.

Client Advisor Program™ (CAP)

In this dynamic and uncertain market, clients require a different level of service to support their business continuity and financial well-being. Their needs demand more than our compliance deliverables, providing information and guidance to help them make swift decisions as they manage cash, pivot their business models, and navigate staffing, technology and other infrastructure changes. To make the shift to a truly strategic client advisor, you’ll have to shed old ideas and habits and develop both your advisory skills and an advisory approach to engagements.

The ConvergenceCoaching Client Advisor Program™ (CAP) is an entirely remote, modular program designed to teach experienced CPAs and consultants advisory skills and strategies to deepen their client relationships, broaden the support they provide clients beyond compliance services and ultimately make a bigger difference in the lives and businesses of their clients.

The program seeks to teach CPAs and consultants how to identify their ideal clients for advisory and coaching services and implement various strategies and frameworks to develop deep rapport with clients, engage in query to uncover needs and to develop, scope, and price solutions, too. CAP participants will partake in six, interactive webinars covering a range of client-centric topics. They will also conduct a monthly KSS on their current responsibilities so they can identify those they should delegate to create capacity to provide advisory services to clients. Doing so elevates the entire team and ensures they are working at their highest and best use. After each webinar, participants will complete specific homework assignments related to the ideas covered and will report back on their outcomes to experienced coaches who will provide them with individual feedback. The result is participants become more indispensable to clients and drive growth with every module mastered.

Each 2-hour interactive webinar is conducted via a videoconference platform that maximizes interactivity with all participants. Class size is managed to enable ample time for sharing and a size conducive to networking with peers from other firms and developing lasting relationships, too.

The program’s six modules and associated outcomes are outlined in our overview. The cost to participate in the CAP is $2,995 per person, including CPE credit.

Remote and Blended Work Video Learning Programs

Remote and blended work is here to stay, with many firms offering flexibility to choose where work is completed or even where team members live. According to our 2020 Anytime, Anywhere Work™ Survey results, over 81% of firms expect an increase in people working remote going forward.

Successfully managing a remote or blended workforce requires firm leadership to adopt a new mindset and for all team members to learn new skills. Leaders must let go of outdated ways of thinking, shifting to proven strategies that will serve them in today’s location-independent market for talent and clients.

To help your firm’s partners and managers shift to this new remote and blended paradigm, we have developed Do It Yourself (DIY) Remote and Blended Work Video Learning Programs designed to support you in driving change wherever your firm is now. These on-demand DIY videos and toolset with associated resources allow you to share them with your team members in smaller, manageable segments and use them over time to ensure that all team members benefit from new ways of thinking and working. The Video Learning Programs for CPA and Consulting Firms include:

Consider engaging ConvergenceCoaching to facilitate the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) assessment and a follow-up learning workshop for your team.

The MBTI® is an assessment designed to identify your personality preferences in a variety of areas including communication, data gathering, decision making, organization and teamwork. There is no “right” or “better” type than others – all 16 types are valid and contribute talents and gifts to your team in different ways. Understanding your type preferences and the preferences of others can help you understand how to better communicate and interact with your team members – leading to greater productivity, increased innovation and deeper relationships. And, the insights learned often help others improve their client relationships, too.

We also facilitate personality diversity workshops for firms that use the DiSC® profile as their standard assessment. Contact us to discuss how understanding personality differences can make a real difference for your team’s success.
