Making partner isn’t what it used to be. CPAs no longer go door to door to sell commodities like tax returns and audits. Accountants are no longer interested in one career or staying with just one firm. Staff don’t want to put in the hours, equity or sweat. They don’t want to hear “Let’s talk when you start bringing in business.” Fewer staff are stepping up and willing to do “what it takes” to make partner. They are not like us. Sound familiar?
Delegation may be one of the best time-management tools and is key to a successful organization. As you’ve probably noticed by now, YOU can’t do everything. Your goal should be to delegate projects down into your organization and profit from the staffers underneath you.
