The #1 reason clients leave their CPAS is that they did not get proactive advice, only reactive (historical) services.
“Everyone keeps telling accountants that they need to change their focus from the historic and the backward-looking, and to start being proactive and offering future-focused advice – but no one tells them how.
The beauty of the Anticipatory Organization program is that it actually gives you a set of tools to harness the hard trends that are shaping the future, and use them to create new value for your firm and your clients.” Daniel Hood, Editor-in-Chief, Accounting Today
Research by CPA.COM defines ‘future ready’ as the ability to be aware, predictive and adaptive to future trends and emerging technologies. In other words to be anticipatory - to identify opportunities before the competition, customer needs before they have them, disruptions before they disrupt and problems before you have them.
In this session, Tom Hood will be moderating a panel of firms that have implemented Daniel Burrus's work to build a culture of innovation and consulting. Learn more about how these firms are leveraging the Anticipatory Organization concepts to help their firms take the lead! Featured are Joey Havens, Horne, LLP, Jeff Wald, K-Coe Isom, and Rich Stang of DeLeon & Stang.
The top executives of these four organizations recently led the implementation of this learning with support by learning and/or administrative team members. All four said the biggest impact was on the mindset of their teams. Changing their teams’ mindset to be more proactive and future-focused, combined with the new language of the “anticipatory organization,” changed the conversations among their team members. Conversation and communication with this new mindset lead to a culture shift that they all experienced. If you can change your team’s mindset and language, you can change results and, ultimately, your culture.
