Recently a few of the Directors of Green Taylor Partners went to a Practice Management conference which focused heavily on leadership, personal development and also how technology was impacting the accounting industry.
I will admit whilst driving to the Airport my motivation levels were low due to the amount of work I had left behind in my office as well as the fact I was spending the next 5 days away from home, including a full weekend! By the end of the 5 days as we were flying back to Victoria on Sunday night, I can honestly say it was one of the better conferences I have been to and I believe it will have a major long-term impact on me.
Much of what I learned from the time away was non-business or “personal development”. When I say “personal development” I don’t mean we walked on hot coals, we didn’t hold hands and meditate and sing “Kumbaya” and I didn’t find an old God or a new God. I just realised a lot of things about myself and how I do things that I think I can really improve on – if I am serious about these improvements this should in turn have an impact on my ability in business as a team member, accountant, manager and leader.
Some of the things I realised I can improve about myself:
I am trying to use what I have learned to improve the quality of the impact I am making on my family, my friends, my fellow team members at GTP, my clients and the community in which I live. There is still so much to do!
