5 online courses to make you a better leader at your tax practice

become a better tax leader

Teams of tax practitioners all over Australia have been put to the test this year – and so have the people leading them. Whether you’re a small practice owner managing your whole business, or a team leader in a bigger corporation, good leadership can make or break a professional team.

If one of your 2021 goals is to make your team more effective, taking a look at your own leadership style and skills is often the first step. But how do you do that? Often, we’re promoted into leadership positions because of our technical excellence and not necessarily taught how to be an effective leader to a team of different people, with different needs, skills and personalities.

To help you get started honing your leadership skills, we’ve collected a list of 5 top online courses from our Go for Growth platform.
