Can you hear the shift change whistle? Because today the whistle is blowing for the accounting profession. The shift change is the transfer of the retiring baby boomers to the next generation of leaders that will be taking the helm in the next few years. Except this time it is not the same as the shipyard. This time the incoming shift will require a new set of skills and tools to continue the work of the prior shift. This time it is different.
The shift change starts with the five major changes in business being driven by the big three trends of technology, demographics, and globalization. These drivers are causing fundamental shifts in Leadership, Learning, Technology, Generations, and the Workplace itself.
The key to surviving the shift change is People and Passion. In this briefing, we cover the critical ways to engage your people and develop them in a strategic and systematic way with a conceptual learning framework we call the Bounce.
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.
Mapping your critical skills (from your strategic plan) to your career ladder allows you to create a curriculum approach that allows your talent to see how they will move up and what skills they need.
