The BIGGEST problem I see with Partners is 1st the feeling they have no time and 2nd no clear boundaries on how they allocate their time. In an accounting firm, especially for a Partner, it is Death By 1000 Cuts. All those little things here there and everywhere compound up quickly and eat away at the hours in the day.
Many Partners tell me they want to grow, some top line some bottom line, and the key to make this happen is to optimise for time. When we can get your TIME right, we can then work on the numbers.
