Ascend PVD

Ascend PVD

Through the seven decades HBK has provided financial management and business advisory services to owner-operator-entrepreneurs, we have recognized that the best performing companies have strong leadership and organizational cultures that empower employees to achieve the company mission. In 2019, HBK developed High Performance to help our entrepreneurial clients improve their leadership skills and foster organizational cultural values that lead to improved company performance.

While helping organizations navigate leadership and culture issues, we discovered that many young accountants lacked critical skills that could benefit their firms and their personal careers as well. As a Top 50 accounting firm, we understand the value of leadership training for our young accounting colleagues and years ago developed Ascend PVD to address this need. Now, we are making Ascend PVD available to accounting firms across the country with a series of two-hour quarterly workshops using the framework of Purpose, Vision, and Disciplines to create exceptional leaders. Workshops are online in a group setting.

Issues we cover include:

  • Leadership principles
  • Decision making
  • Crisis management
  • Goal setting
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Traits of effective leaders
  • How to affect organizational culture in a positive way
  • Work/life balance
  • The power of intentionality
  • Clear and effective communication¬†

Ascend PVD gives accounting firms an efficient and sustainable onboarding program to help their young professionals become exceptional leaders by harnessing the power of Purpose, Vision, and Disciplines.  Through Ascend PVD, each attendee will learn how to clearly define who they are, where they want to go, and how to get where they want to go as a young professional.
