It’s Always Our Fault

by |

One of the BIGGEST headaches of running your own accounting practice is having to deal with HR issues.

From training to sick days to benefits to performance reviews

…it can all wear on you.

But I realized a long time ago that when something goes wrong there’s

always ONE person I can consistently point to that’s responsible for it ALL.

Get this figured it out and it will EMPOWER

you to manage your team at an amazing level.

    Love your perspective, Erik! If leaders/owners/managers first assumed a problem was their fault or if not, solvable through leadership, think about how productivity would be increased. Wow,

    p.s. still stalking you

      Thanks Jeff. You made me laugh out loud with the stalking comment….that was awesome 🙂

    Bonjour Erik,
    HR means to me “Hard Resolve”, because it’S hard to find staff, especially competent and available staff. Then when you find them, you have to deal with sickness, lateness and their personal issues, and in the busy tax season, I have no time or patience to deal with all this!
    Thanks for another good video.

      Yes, I’ve been there myself Burt. That’s why I changed my business model to not have a busy season. Gave us breathing space to be able to handle all those naturally occurring HR issues without stress 🙂

    Agree, I think it’s called taking responsibility Eric.
    Which is something that is sadly lacking in today’s litigious society.

      True that Wayne. Very much lacking.
