Great post worth a read and fitting as we prepare for our 4th class of Leadership Academy next week in Timonium.

 

This quote sume up our leadership philosophy perfectly, “I cannot tell you what to do. I can only inspire you what to do.”

 

And the four essential skills are all part of our program as well:

 

1) Observe and respond - we call this being self-aware in the moment and understanding the context surrounding you as leader and the situations you find yourself in;

 

2) Know your stand - for us this is knowing your strengths and values and those of your organization. We agree that your "personal values are your anchor" and we help our young profesisonals connect to their values using the latest research form the growing field of "positive psycholgy";

 

3) Leading Virtual Teams - we call this skill network leadership and revolves around both physical and virtual teams as well as up, down, inside and out;

 

4) Promote Collaboration - this is the core of our program, how to facilitate and promote collaborative work, build consensus and allow peoplke to "weigh in in order to buy-in". See our post The # 1 Skill You Need Today http://cpa.tc/2j0 ;

 

Finally, I agree that "Millennial leaders are uniquely positioned to show us Gen Xers, Boomers, and even a smattering of employees from the Silent Generation how work gets done in the 21st century."

 Here is a whitepaper on leadership from our first class of our Leadership Academy titled, What Got You Here, Won't get You There http://cpa.tc/2j1 ;

Rebekah Brown, CPA's curator insight, April 17, 2013 9:51 AM

The typical career path isn't a nice, well-lit, straight, flat street. It's more like Lombard Street in San Francisco -- in the dark. A couple of things happen along the way: You make valuable contacts (even if they don't seem that valuable at the time), you learn new skills, and perhaps most importantly, you learn more about yourself.

Social Media and Millennials | The Nimble Blog | Accounting Students | Scoop.it
College students don’t seem to know the basic fundamentals of social media marketing.
Rebekah Brown, CPA's insight:

In this world of hyper connectivity, you have access to leaders at your fingertips through social media. Are you using social media to build your personal brand and business network or to follow the Kardashians? Take advantage of the tools available to you, the ones you are probably already using, to learn and connect with thought leaders.

For accounting students I suggest:
