While listening to a podcast a while back, I was struck by the mention of an issue that is demoralizing workplaces and limiting big results in companies. The issue is ego in the workplace. As I began looking into the research and the thinking behind this, I found Cy Wakeman’s book, No Ego.

 

The driver behind the research and theory of this book is workplace drama and entitlement – or “emotional waste” as the author calls it. This could be further defined as “mentally wasteful thought processes or unproductive behaviors.” The research shows that the average worker is spending approximately 2.5 hours per day in workplace drama. According to the research, ego influences activities such as: Read more

I’m excited to be speaking at this year’s QB Connect conference in San Jose, CA. It’s November 15 – 17, 2017, and you’ll want to register soon (seats are filling up fast)! Come hang out with me!

 

I wanted to give a brief overview of what I’ll be sharing at QB Connect. My partner and I have tried a lot of marketing ideas, and we’ve learned a lot of things that do and do not work. I’ll tell you more at QB Connect, but there are some things I can share with you briefly here in this article.

I led with a provocative title. I hope I got your attention! I’m not just trying to trick you into reading this article; I actually believe the title is true. But I know it takes a while to get to a place where accounting firm owners can give up performing accounting. The whole reason I bring this up is because I’ve been interested in what it takes to scale an accounting firm lately (I actually wrote a free guide to help you do just that). I’ve been interested in this topic because Jeff Phillips, CEO of Accountingfly.com and myself will be teaching on how to scale your accounting firm at this year’s Deeper Weekend conference (see more details below).

For many entrepreneurial leaders, it feels odd asking for help, or relying on others. After all, entrepreneurs are people with passion and grit to do amazing things. But that passion and grit can get you only so far as your firm starts to scale larger. It often becomes surprising that the passion begins to drain out of the Founder of an entrepreneurial company that is growing larger.

 

At that point, the firm leaders/founders need help to continue to scale a company in a healthy way, and the job of the firm CEO becomes more tightly focused on leadership and vision. I can tell you from experience that to maintain a healthy focus on leadership and vision means the CEO/Founder must remain personally healthy. Things can fall apart quickly if the firm founder is being drained, not sleeping well, not eating well, or failing to exercise. Again, it’s hard for the entrepreneurial leaders themselves to request this help because they are the types of people that don’t typically seek help.

Like any other company owner, firm owners face growth issues too. But many firm owners don’t view their firms as businesses to be grown and managed. Thriveal wants to teach firm owners to look at their firms like entrepreneurial businesses. For any entrepreneurial company, there needs to be a leader leading the firm through the vision. Deeper Weekend is a place where entrepreneurial firm owners can be together, discuss their paths of growth, and challenge each other with their own personal learnings on their entrepreneurial journey.
