Your advantage during ENGAGE 2020:
Knowing what we excel at and what we are weaker in is not a failure -- that kind of honesty can be the make-or-break information that we use to find our best work as leaders. As CPAs, we understand the return of a tangible investment. But what about intangible investments -- emotional, leadership, energy investment? Communication skills, interaction skills, culture building skills? Soft skills are harder to track, but just as valuable to the success and profitability of your company. How can we know if the return on our energy (ROE, for short) is directly impacting our return on investment (ROI, that we know and love)? We take a look inside ourselves, and we look to the success of our people. This ROE (Return on Energy) is the secret ingredient in accomplishing your most important work. Reaching your professional goals while managing your personal life is a juggling act -- weighing what is needed in the moment and balancing the pull of work, family and self. This workshop will address the juggling act to accomplish your goals by managing your energy to attain more career impact and life fulfillment. You'll lean into your Return on Energy to accomplish your most important work.
Sarah Elliott, PCC, CPA
Did you know that only 1% of CPAs in the US are Black (according to 2019 data from the National Association of Black Accountants)? The CPA profession remains overwhelmingly white and male, particularly when you look at our leadership ranks. By now, most of us understand the importance of embracing diversity in the workplace. Not only are there countless business benefits (e.g., increased creativity, enhanced perspective, improved performance, global impact and more), it’s simply the right thing to do. Yet, we continue to struggle in making meaningful change when it comes to diversity, equity and inclusion.
During this introspective session, we’ll explore:
Trust is outlined as one of the most important characteristics in leadership today. When trust is present, our teams and culture thrive in creating a psychological safe space in order to drive change, to drive innovation, and build a winning organization. Trust is a foundational value that is defined from the smallest of interactions and individual moments we have whether in our relationships with managers, relationships within our teams, or even our relationships at home. We will dissect the anatomy of trust and build upon BRAVING our interactions to 3 individually applied concepts that help and build trust in ourselves and recognize trust in others.
