Getting your Practice Advisory Ready
Square One provides Accountants with a clear plan to become Advisory ready.
Square One is NOT a course on HOW to do advisory. Instead, it aims to address the key areas that need to be in place before starting an Advisory Division.
Square One can be used by firms who are wanting to forge their own road with Advisory, or can form part of being a SuperFirm Joint Venture partner.
Month 1 – The Centered Practice – don’t just add to the chaos
To avoid advisory becoming an unwanted distraction, and as a result, failing to fire, you need to first have your house in order.
SuperCoach will conduct our detailed “Centred Practice” review, highlighting key practice areas requiring attention prior to rolling out your advisory plan.
Once strategies are put in place to resolve any issues discovered as part of the review, you will be clear to commence planning for advisory success.
Month 2 – Mindset and Conversations
Prior to coaching or advising your clients, it is critical that you have your own headspace right. Executive coaching has been proven to increase effectiveness of not only the individual but also that of the team they lead. You will receive a Mindset Executive coaching session for each partner (or senior/manager if applicable).
In addition, you will receive guidance on how to conduct Higher Level conversations with clients. the ability to have these conversations is essential to capturing advisory opportunities.
