Course Description

With quotes like, "transform or die" and "disruption is king" it is pertinent that changes, especially those from technology, staffing and compliance, be embraced by accounting professionals. The ability to apply a disruption-friendly mindset to industry shifts will be necessary to serve organizations, grow revenue and retain personnel. Equipping CPAs with the skill set to move through transitions while continuing to produce is imperative in the next decade.
Road blocks and unforeseen adversity, both personal and professional, stretch us every day. In this powerful session Kathy will share how devastating news led her on a journey to discovering the keys to thriving in the face of challenging circumstances.
While sharing her 3-R method for resilient behaviors (React, Reframe, Re-energize), Ms. Parry will give participants the toolkit needed to implement the R-3 method.
