1 Diagnose Issues

Before any change can happen, you must first identify what you want to achieve, understand why making these changes is important and define how you will measure success. It is important to identify barriers and challenges that have interrupted your journey before and take time to identify your business and personal growth, profit and leadership goals.

2 Define Priorities

Once you know where you want to go, it is time to figure out how to get there. This involves not only establishing large goals, but also identifying the way you will reach them and the team members that will be responsible for each priority and step along the way. To lead others and drive successful change, you must be change ready to deliver process improvements and reach targeted goals.

3 Determine Step Changes

No journey is instantaneous, and you can’t tackle everything at once either. Additionally, radical changes are disruptive to your business and team members. Identify the smaller, step changes that you and others on your team can make to move toward your goals. Identify ways to improve your processes as you go, so you don’t fall back into old routines over time.

4 Deliver Results

Our in-person and virtual facilitation provides built-in accountability in achieving your goals and developing strategies for progress and measurement. By working together, we ensure that you are moving forward and adjusting as needed to deliver the results you need.

5 Demonstrate Sustainable Success

As you reach your goals – and identify other areas for improvement – it is important to celebrate your achievements. It is also vital to stay agile and get support when faced with day-to-day challenges or unexpected strategic matters. While you are never really “done,” it is valuable to regularly take stock of your successes – and correct missteps – to continue to make progress toward your growth, profit and leadership goals.

About Sue Groszkiewicz

As an audit manager of an Atlanta CPA firm, it was frustrating to write a letter of recommendations for a client and leave it to them to resolve their issues. We knew more about the companies we audited than any other advisor working with the client. As COO at a Top 10 Atlanta CPA firm, we incubated a Business Strategy Group to fill a gap in the market by providing meaningful, useful business advice. This was not financial advice, it was focused on working with business leaders to remove barriers, identify challenges, and to build better individuals and teams while driving change throughout their organizations. In 2015 following a large scale acquisition by a regional CPA firm, we rolled out into our own business to continue as Accountable For Change.

Testimonials

Sue facilitated a strategic planning workshop for my team. As part of the process, she worked with our team members in helping them identify strategies pertinent to their functional areas. By doing so, we created a cascaded strategic plan that aligned our people with the vision of the wealth department. To ensure success, Sue coached me in the areas of leadership, plan execution and accountability. Working with Sue provided the needed nudge to step up our game and created a successful team.

I cannot speak highly enough of Sue and this program. I use the communication and organizational skills I learned through her business coaching every day, and I have found purpose and value in my work beyond completing daily task lists. I highly recommend her and her program for anyone looking to grow their business and confidence, and anyone who could use a little more balance in their lives.
