We’ve had a Leadership Training program at our CPA firm for several years, and until this summer it didn’t strike me: The phrase is an oxymoron.  No, it’s not that I don’t believe leadership skills can be learned, or that leaders are born and not made.  Here’s the deal: Leadership development is about learning, not training.  Your firm’s future leaders, like mine, must be given the opportunities, tools, and motivation to develop their leadership.
