As an accountant you may spend most of your time in the detail – transactions, reports, analysis and so on.
It’s easy to get our minds stuck in the detail – I know it happens to me. But to be an effective manager, and to develop your career, you need to be able to come out of the wood and see the trees and the wider landscape.
This course – the creative accountant – is about just that: developing your personal and professional skills to be a more creative, more capable problem-solver so that you can improve your effectiveness as a manager, expand your horizons and develop your career.
To progress and grow as a professional you need more than just technical accounting skills. You need to be a creative accountant.
But the term “creative accountant” has become something of a joke! It’s time to take the phrase back; to stop people thinking about cooking the books and to start to make them realise that accountants are creative thinkers and valuable members of any improvement team.
If you think you’ve become slightly too obsessive about the detail and need a bigger picture view to think through issues and solve problems from a broader perspective, then this is the course for you.
