What It Is
Leading accounting firms are facing a common daunting challenge. As their leadership continues to age, qualified partner candidates are becoming scarce. The next generation of leaders lacks the qualifications of high performing partners. Their partner pipeline is empty.
That’s where Partner-Pipeline can help. Partner-Pipeline is a systematic program that develops four frequently overlooked contributions of high performing partners. While most training programs focus on technical competence, the Partner-Pipeline is the first comprehensive program dedicated to developing qualified, well-rounded partner candidates.
Professional Development Map Program
What It Is
Begin the New Year with a Professional Development Map that will enable you to accomplish what is truly important. For the equivalent of billing a couple of extra hours, you get a map that keeps you focused and motivated. The professional coaching you receive leverages the science of human behavior and integrates it into your own behavioral style, ensuring successful execution of your plan.
Who It Is For
While just about everyone would gain from this program, it is specifically designed for professional service providers who want to:
- Advance in their career
- Pursue a promotion
- Establish or expand a niche area of practice
- Manage a team, department or firm to a higher level of functioning
- Improve your individual effectiveness and personal satisfaction as a professional
How It Works
The Professional Development Map is produced after you take a 20-minute online Personal Style Profile, submit answers to a handful of questions and participate in two 45-minute coaching calls. The information is then analyzed, organized and assembled on a one-page Professional Development Map that is tailored to you and your goals and how to best achieve them using your personal style.
What You Get
In addition to the Professional Development Map, you will receive an 8-page Personal Profile Report that describes your style related to productivity, quality of work, imitative, teamwork, problem solving and adapting to change, with specific suggestions to enhance your strong areas and to neutralize your deficit areas. The report will also explain how you behave under stress, frustration and conflict and how to increase your effectiveness in these areas. Finally, you will learn about your natural motivational energy and how to manage and organize your environment to extract the most from your energy resource.
How You Benefit
If you’ve never participated in a program like this, you will be surprised by what you learn about yourself and how to cooperate with your natural style to get the highest results. If you have experienced this before, you know of the personal and professional benefits you receive and you will learn the finer points of tailoring and achieving your goals within your style and motivations.
The benefits you receive include:
- An awareness and understanding of yourself and how you work and relate to others
- A success map that guides you to maximize your efforts and achievements
- A personal-style profile that describes your characteristics and how to use them to your advantage
- 2 professional coaching calls to guide and direct your thinking and planning to ensure you can realistically execute your Professional Development Map.
All of this is offered to you for $1,500. If you bill a few extra hours, you’ve paid for the entire Program and you will have the essential information about yourself and how to effectively set goals that you can achieve.
The Service Guarantee
If you’re not satisfied, neither am I. All of the Partners Coach programs are fully guaranteed to meet or exceed your expectations. If you are not fully satisfied with the Professional Development Map Program, let me know and I will make it right. If I am unable to do so, you may pay whatever you deem is appropriate for the value you received, no questions asked.

– Craig Springer, CPA
“There are many people in the service industry, but what separates Guy is his experiences working within a CPA firm. I’ve recommended Guy to many other firms. Firms that emphasize the skills Guy teaches, differentiate themselves. That’s the bottom line and an important issue. Guy not only comes with a program but has lived it, practiced it, and can speak from experience. He will make individuals and firms stretch to make them better individually and collectively,”
– Mark Topel, CPA, CFP
“Guy understands the opportunities and problems in an organization and is able to be involved in the decision making and problem solving steps. It is a tremendous asset for Guy to have the experience of working inside a firm. I would definitely recommend Guy to others. He has a really good understanding of what makes people tick. His educational background in counseling prior to coaching is a strong asset that mixes well with his firm experiences,”
