Summer Reading #1

This book is a must read for all CPA firm partners and marketing professionals. The authors offer an integrated leadership model that they believe is necessary for professional service firms to remain successful. They identify four critical activities effective leaders must carry out:

– Set strategic direction

– Secure partner and associate commitment to this direction

– Facilitate execution of strategy

– Set a personal example of behavior

Many examples are used from CPA firms, law firms, consulting practices and investment banks.

Put aside the latest murder mystery or “chick book” and read When Professionals Have to Lead. You and your firm will benefit greatly.
