Succession Institute

Succession Institute (SI) (SI is an Affiliate of the Center for Leadership Studies (CLS) -- the developers of the Situational Leadership® material) has customized this workshop for CPAs in public accounting and industry. SI is one of the few organizations authorized by CLS to customize this workshop. In doing so, SI has added elements to meet the unique needs of supervisory personnel in both industry and public accounting. For example, they created role play case studies to help program participants understand how to approach developmental opportunities with their staff as well as how intervene and turn around declining performance.
