Freedom To Fail
Would you believe that some CPA’s feel that if they make mistakes, it’ll be held against them? You probably do. Have you thought about what effect that has on the functioning of your team and your organization as a whole?

In this session Kristen will explore the concept of failure, and research behind the traits that contribute to the highest levels of team effectiveness. Walk away with ideas on how you can measure and create an environment that fosters peak team performance and healthy communication.

Speaker – Kristen Rampe, CPA, Owner Kristen Rampe Consulting

Kristen got into accounting the way many people did: She liked math. She joined the Big 4 out of college and held on for three enlightening years in audit. After finding the long-hours-lifestyle to be more than she was after, Kristen quit public accounting for the first time and ended up in industry at one of her clients.

18 months later, she jumped back into public at a regional firm in San Francisco. This time she eased out of audit to help form a SOX compliance team from the ground up, and led a variety of intriguing and unique consulting projects.

Fast-forward seven years, she realized her strongest technical talents were those in the areas that were not considered "technical" as a public accountant; you know the ones: communication, client service, building great teams, etc. Kristen decided to use her strengths to bring these essential skills back to the industry she's known from the inside.

Her work now enables deeper client relationships, stronger team collaboration, and increased efficiency; all leading to higher profitability for CPA and professional services firms. She loves what she does and welcomes the opportunity to work with people who value relationships and communication as a component of success.
