Over the years in executive search, I had the pleasure to meet extraordinarily talented tax professionals all over the world in corporations, public accounting firms, law firms, independent tax services firms, academia and government. During this time, I learned how highly educated tax professionals are and continue to be throughout their tax careers. What I also discovered is that many of the very finest tax technicians enjoyed looking through the tax code to “ figure out the tax problem and solve it like a puzzle”. These great tax technicians are masters at solving tax problems yet many are shy about promoting themselves. Four years ago, I decided to develop a platform that would bring tax professionals out from behind the scenes and make them visible to the people who are searching for them. In order to ensure the most success for tax professionals, we decided Read More

A while back Seth Godin did a blog post online titled, “On Behalf of Yes”

It struck a cord with me on how many times, inside public accounting firms, partners, managers and even team members lean towards thinking, “No, we can’t.”

While it comes to understanding complex tax laws and changing to comply with those demands and performing audit services with the utmost perfection, CPAs think – “Yes we can, this is our profession and we love this stuff.”

Yet when it comes to taking care of their own business, keeping pace with the times and what is going on in the management world, CPAs think, “No way, I like things just the way they are. It’s worked well for us all these years.”

What have the most successful firms embraced? They have embraced a YES attitude.

– Nearly 30 years ago, most CPAs did not believe an administrative person could plan CPE, select the right people to hire, lead the marketing efforts and help bring the newest technology into the firm. Then they discovered the power of hiring a firm administrator.
– We cannot advertise. It’s not professional and we don’t know how. Yes, we did.
– I remember one of my first “No, we can’t” situations. We can’t possibly do away with our legal size files and move to letter size. Yes, we did.
– No, we cannot let someone work a flexible schedule. Yes, we did.
– No, we simply cannot put a computer on everyone’s desk. Yes, we did.
– No, we cannot go paperless. Yes, we did.
– No, we cannot allow our people access to the internet. Yes, we did.
– No, we cannot get into all of this social media stuff. Yes, we did.

You might not even be aware you are displaying a “No” attitude and demeanor. Become aware! Stop thinking and saying “No” and identifying all the reasons why something cannot be done.

Think of the kid’s show “Bob the Builder“. His motto:

Can we fix it? Yes, we can!
