April 22, 2020 – Join Brian for a Virginia Society of CPAs WOWbinarInside-Out Feedback: See and Do Feedback Differently through Coaching from 12:30-1:30pm ET!

Are there times when you dread delivering or receiving feedback? Performance feedback matters – we all need to receive the feedback to perform better and grow into our best self. The exchange of actionable feedback is vital to the health of any relationship and organization. Yet, in many cases, feedback feels hard, and the conversations we know we need to have don’t occur at all, or they feel extremely awkward!

Brian will share a new mindset to cultivate and a coaching technique to practice. This inside-out approach to feedback will change the way you see and do feedback conversations so you can make them more focused, continuous, actionable and most importantly – more collaborative and fun!

April 23, 2020 – Sarah is presenting Unleash Your Peak Performance virtually for TXCPA Austin’s Pathway to Leadership program!

Let’s face it – this profession can feel demanding at times! Many of us focus all our energy on serving those around us – our clients, teams, colleagues, family and friends – oftentimes at the expense of our own well-being. In order to be a high performer, you must increase your capacity to bring energy and full engagement to the things you value most. In this workshop, we will explore how well-being and mindfulness contribute to your performance and leadership capacity, and you’ll create your own personal peak performance plan!

May 14, 2020 – Brian is presenting The Coaching Mindset virtually for Virginia Society of CPAs Leaders’ Summit!

In this ever-changing world, we need leaders who can empower others through coaching. But, before we can utilize coaching skills, we need to challenge our mindset. In this interactive session, Brian will explore:

  • What coaching is (and isn’t) and how it is different from other developmental methods.
  • What the coaching mindset is, and how can it help you see the world in a way that empowers your relationships and everyone you serve!

May 28, 2020 – Sarah is presenting Authentic Leadership: Creating a New Dimension of Possible at Morison KSi’s North America Conference in Austin, TX!

The world is changing, fast. So is the accounting profession. Many of us are hyper-focused on being future ready – trying to keep up with change and embracing new technology. And that is critical! But let’s not forget about the other vital half of being future ready: being HUMAN ready.

We are in the midst of a massive shift in human consciousness. Humanity is evolving at an accelerated pace. We are waking up, and we want more – more meaning, purpose, fulfillment and authentic connection. Each one of us has an opportunity to accelerate this shift by awakening the more conscious, evolved leader within.

By cultivating a more conscious form of leadership, you can unlock the latent potential of your people and inspire them to reach new heights! You will create new possibilities for your organization, the people in it and everyone you serve!

During this insightful and interactive session, Sarah will:

  • Provide an overview of where we are in the accounting profession, including what got us here and where we’re headed.
  • Explore how a more conscious, authentic style of leadership can help you navigate an ambiguous future.
  • Generate some practical ideas for how you can elevate your leadership style and create new possibilities in your organization.

June 3-4, 2020 – Brian is leading a 1-day workshop on personal development and presenting on Naked Leadership at CPAmerica’s 2020 Next Generation Conference in Nashville, TN!

  • Empowering Intentional Leadership – We will explore what it means to be an intentional leader and how living your life on purpose can create new possibilities for you. Learn how to unlock your leadership potential by tapping into your Why, and what makes you uniquely you.  You will uncover strategies for attracting others to your causes in a way that feels inspiring instead of manipulative.
  • Crafting Your Vision – It’s easy to lose sight of what matters most of us when we’re just trying to keep up with the day-to-day demands of work and life. We’re so busy, we don’t often pause to think about why we’re doing what we’re doing, or whether if it’s even leading us where we really want to go. In order to create the level of success and fulfillment you’re seeking in your career and life, you first need to define what success means to you. In this fun, hands-on workshop, you’ll begin to craft your personal definition of success and create a vision board to bring it to life! You’ll also walk away with an intentional plan to help you move towards your vision, one day at a time.

In order to be a high performer in any field, you must increase your capacity to bring energy and full engagement to the things you value most. In this workshop, we will explore how well-being and mindfulness contribute to your performance and leadership capacity, and you’ll create your own personal peak performance plan!
  • Intentional Influence – Explore the concept of influence and how it furthers your career goals. Learn how to maximize your effectiveness during an influencing opportunity and how your personal presence impacts your influence on others.

  • Sarah is presenting Break the Dependence on June 9.

As accountants, we like to be known as the Chief Problem Solver (CPS). But, when it comes to developing our teams, we must stop being the CPS and instead empower our people to become more resourceful on their own. During this fun, interactive session, we will explore how you can empower and influence your team using some professional coaching techniques, instead of finding fault or prescribing solutions.

  • Amber is presenting I Dare You to Dream on June 9.

The work of an accountant often lives in the space of concrete reality. Measurable facts, reasonableness, and expertise all feel safer and more valuable than exploring the unknown. Yet, the unknown is the space of pure potential; it is where all possibilities exist.

When we allow ourselves to not know, we can become curious. And in this magical space, we can discover greater value to deliver, new possibilities for overcoming the complex challenges we face, and a moment to slow down and (re)connect to purpose.

  • Brian is presenting The #1 Thing Holding You Back on June 10.

The #1 thing holding you back from whatever it is you want is you…your beliefs. When you begin noticing your self-limiting beliefs, you can begin replacing them with more empowering beliefs that help you reach more of your potential as a leader. We will share four common archetypes in the accounting profession – the Perfectionist, the Busy Bee, the Chief Problem Solver, and the People Pleaser – uncover the thoughts behind each and explore strategies to deal with their negative impacts on your life.

  • Susan is presenting Overcoming Overwhelm on June 11.

Time is the only asset we have that is not renewable. It is valuable, and at the end of the day, we spent our time on what was most important. We must be intentional in how we use our time, or we will lose it. Many of us are overwhelmed with the magnitude of what we need to accomplish every day. Susan will help you understand how you are currently using your time, evaluate that against what your ideal work day/week looks like, and implement strategies to create the change you desire. You will walk away with tangible action items to address your overwhelm!

June 18, 2020 – Sarah is presenting Unleash Your Peak Performance for TXCPA Houston’s CPE by the Sea in Galveston, TX!

Let’s face it – this profession can feel demanding at times! Many of us focus all our energy on serving those around us – our clients, teams, colleagues, family and friends – oftentimes at the expense of our own well-being. Not only is this not sustainable, it’s negatively impacting our ability to help those around us.

In order to be a high performer, you must increase your capacity to bring energy and full engagement to the things you value most. Explore how well-being and mindfulness contribute to your performance and leadership capacity, and create your own personal peak performance plan!
