Success is about hard work, as a partner or manager in an accountancy practice you know this.
You have worked hard to get to where you are today… and you have built a successful accountancy firm.
What if you worked hard in a different way… could your firm be more successful?
Dan Coyle in his inspiring book ‘The Talent Code’ visited hotbeds of talent production and learned that there is a common thread to success.
He stated ‘When you operate on the edge of your ability, when you are reaching, failing, reaching again, learning velocity goes way up. It goes way up!’
A baby learns to walk quickly because they are reaching for the next level of toddling, they fall a lot, they get up and they don’t let this deter them. They receive lots of positive coaching and encouragement. They keep stretching themselves till they have mastered walking. Then they reach again and start learning to run, skip, jump!
When you struggle, you get smarter, faster, better...
Embrace the struggle and you will build your firm smarter, faster and better.
You can adopt this approach for you and your firm when you:
- Ruthlessly eliminate passive learning
- Embrace the struggle
- Embrace repetition
- Provide constructive coaching support
