Partner in Training Program
Wouch, Maloney offers a unique Partner-in-Training Program that provides a solid path to partnership for accounting professionals with partner aspirations, in conjunction with the firm’s succession needs. Our program provides you with training and mentoring in advanced technical and analytical skills, business development, as well as leadership and marketing skills. Partners-in-training work individually with equity partners and business consultants, receiving regular developmental feedback during the partner-in-training process.
Wouch Maloney’s Partnership Competency Model – A great partner understands the commitment and responsibility required to be a business owner. Successful CPA/partners have advanced technical knowledge, set examples for professional and ethical behavior, have and execute successful marketing plans, relate well to clients, possess excellent management and supervisory skills, manage work profitably, value of team work, and recognize the importance of recruiting, training and retaining a strong support staff. We provide you with a partner/mentor who will help you develop these skills. You will learn by example to develop the technical skills that will enable you to perform at a high level of competency so that you function with ease and confidence when working with clients in all areas of advisory services. We also develop your “soft” skills to enable you to communicate effectively with clients, potential clients, referral sources and staff, thus contributing to overall firm success.
Wouch Maloney’s Personal Marketing Plan – Well-conceived and productive marketing plans are the foundation of successful equity partners in today’s business world. Our Partner-in-Training Program places special emphasis on the development and follow through of your personal marketing plan and related activities. Marketing plans are built on developing strong relationships with business community peers rather than having a “selling services” attitude. You will learn that successful business development creates increased name recognition and sustainability for the firm. Not all marketing plan activities will yield the results you desire, but nevertheless, are an added value in building strong relationships with people. Through mentoring with partners and professionals, you will develop a sustainable marketing plan that will work for you throughout your partnership career.
The goal of our Partner-in-Training Program is to develop you into the leader, entrepreneur and individual you want to become, while contributing to sustaining Wouch, Maloney into the future.
