The Accountant’s Leadership Development Organization (ALDO) is for high potential Accountants who, with a little help, have great potential to become leaders within the business. Members consider themselves life long learners open to
personal growth, development and change. ALDO provides the missing professional development opportunity many have been seeking their entire career. Deep inside, they know they are more than just bean counters. They recognize the tremendous value of
what they see in the numbers, but struggle to articulate what it means and why it’s important to the business.
Accountants by nature are detailed, analytical, technical experts that are well educated and trained in debits and credits, but not so much in the soft skills of real world leadership and interpersonal communication.
ALDO stimulates and encourages members to go beyond the numbers to help their businesses navigate the future. Counting and reporting the numbers are important, but they only provide a rear view of what’s already happened. Utilizing their comprehensive
understanding of the numbers to articulate the potential impact on the future of the business is where an Accountant provides real value and exemplifies true leadership. Members convene monthly in half-day learning and problem solving meetings facilitated
by an experienced CFO coach. Meetings provide a trusted, confidential environment for members to learn, solve real world problems and seek various perspectives into their own leadership development and interpersonal communication skills.
