In a world of constant change and increasing complexity, the winners will be those who can keep their rate of learning faster than the rate of change, both as individuals and as organizations. Tom will explain why Business Learning Institute developed the “bounce” as an organizing framework to help develop a strategic and systematic approach to sustain increased and collective rate of learning. The Bounce is all about trajectory (direction), alignment & acceleration. Make sure you’re in the ballgame to win.

There is a fundamental path to success for every CPA, we call the bounce. It is the shift from mentor to mentee, from technician to leader that happens at the manager job level. It shifts the focus from task specific work to managing people and projects. This critical turning point is where BLI makes a difference. From our Leadership Academy (now being offered at the AICPA for a fifth year and in several State CPA Societies and custom Firm and Corporate programs to our portfolio of programs that develop the critical leadership competencies identified by the AICPA in their CPA Horizons 2025 Project.

The Bounce covers the career trajectory of professionals as they move from technical proficiency to managing people and projects and ultimately organizations. The bounce speaks to the change in direction from technical mastery to acquiring competencies to lead others and leading organizations. It is about velocity and trajectory as you shift direction to the need for more “success skills” as you move up n your career. The Bounce includes the latest research on competencies from the AICPA through the CPA Horizons 2025 Project and the CGMA Competency framework.

This presentation also includes survey results of the top issues facing young professionals and Tom's top tools for personal development.
