Your Top Talent Needs Recognition

Recognition is a huge motivator.

Accountants are often type-cast as critical, finding-fault, looking for errors. It’s that auditor behavior... finding out what is wrong. It’s that manager behavior.... telling people what they did wrong.

As kids grow up, especially the millennials, they get lots of applause, encouraging words and recognition. Your job as a CPA firm leader is to keep it coming.

"I praise loudly, I blame softly."
