Accountancy Firm Star Performer on Track for President
A Partner in a mid-sized accountancy firm was being groomed as
the successor to the current president. He was referred by the president
of the firm for high performance leadership coaching. He had a number
of strengths including the highest level of integrity and was well
respected by his peers and customers.
The Partner was given several leadership assessment instruments.
We then engaged in 6 months of two-hour coaching meetings every
week. We focused on an evolving repertoire of competencies and behaviors
including increasing his book of business, organizational capability,
team building, problem-solving, and sustaining the vision.
The Partner further developed the qualities of good leadership
required in this type of corporate culture. He improved his competency
in the areas of creating an inspiring vision, influence, use of
power and authority, and managing change. He became more comfortable
with visibility and more emotionally expressive. He increased his
book of business 50%. He is on track for advancement to succeed
the president of the firm.
A high performing Partner in an accountancy firm engaged in Executive
Coaching to further improve his leadership capability. He learned
different styles of leadership and emotional intelligence competencies.
He is now well prepared to assume the firm's presidency.
