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. Explore how well-being and mindfulness contribute to your performance and leadership capacity, and create your own personal peak performance plan!
December 19, 2019 – Join Brian for a free webinar for CPA Academy, The #1 Thing Holding You Back, from 10-11am CST!
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. In this webinar we will share four common archetypes in the accounting profession: The Perfectionist, the Busy Bee, the Chief Problem Solver, and the People Pleaser; and uncover the thoughts behind each and explore strategies to deal with their negative impacts on your life.

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.

- 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.

- 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!
July 31, 2020 – Brian will be presenting Disrupting a Broken Feedback Culture at CPAmerica’s 2020 Northeast/Midwest Regional Meeting in Boston, MA!
Deep down, we know feedback matters, yet many accountants get the feedback challenge wrong when it comes to professional development. We will explore how we can change our mindset and methods in a way that makes feedback easier. You will also learn what your organization can do to create a stronger feedback culture for everyone.
