Executive Coaching for accountants

Accounting Partners: Executive Coaching

12 weeks via Zoom/Skype | Instructor Kimberley J. Richardson

Course description

You've been a Partner now for several years now and you've achieved great success. You've built your team, landed new clients and won the respect of your colleagues. With that success, however, has come new career challenges that require you to take your leadership skills to a new level.

What would it be worth to you to have a personal and confidential executive coach who can help you do that?

What if that coach had such a deep understanding of your profession and the demands that are placed on you, that she was able to give you the tools that will help you become a genuine leader?

And what if that coach could get you there faster than anyone else, because she has the road map that has helped so many other Partners just like you?

Why work with me?

It's hard to believe that it's been 22 years since our business was created. During that time I've had the privilege of coaching and training hundreds of accountants, the majority of whom are now Partners. My primary goal has always been to help them take their personal and professional lives to an entirely new level. It's what has given me the greatest amount of joy and personal satisfaction.

How does an Executive Coaching Program Work?

The way I coach you is specific to your needs. When you choose to work with me, we will start by identifying your priorities, areas of development and exploring your core values. Then through a series of conversations, I will give you the tools, tips and strategies that will help you set realistic goals so you can take your life to a whole new level.

What are the benefits of Executive Coaching?

We are living in a 24/7 world and managing our personal and professional priorities has become a real challenge. We help you determine what's immportant and map out a strategy that will best meet your needs.

What subjects will we coach on?

The subjects we coach on range from core value clarification and life balance to personal accountability and the attributes of a genuine leader.  

Our short questionnaire will give us a snapshot of where you are in your life and what your areas of development are. Following that, we will customize a program for you, that will best address your needs.

Getting Started:

Step 1: Self-Evaluation Questionnaire:
Prior to our initial meeting, we will send you a self-evaluation questionnaire. The results of this questionnaire will be reviewed and a customized coaching program will be created to see what is really important to you now and then help you map out a life and career strategy that will help you integrate your values into your life. My goal is to give you the tools that will help you focus, get results and live a happy, fulfilling and rewarding life.

Step 2: 
Schedule Coaching Sessions via Zoom

1.5 hour in length x 12 sessions = 18 hours

Format: Zoom/Skype, telephone calls and email.

Here's what some of our clients have to say:


"I just wanted to thank you for your help last week and again on Monday. At some level I probably had a lot of the pieces figured out, but putting it all together has been a huge help for me. I admire your ability to empower others to take control of their lives and to have courage to achieve their potential. I can tell you love your job...and yourself" ~Private client & Partner

"Its official - the announcement regarding my promotion came out yesterday. Thanks for all you support and assistance during the year. You were amazing!!! ~Private client & Partner

"As usual, I enjoyed our discussion yesterday immensely. My husband and I had our own interesting and delightful discussion last night which was interspersed with your pearls of wisdom. Thank you for that. ~Private client & Partner 

"I very much enjoyed our meeting today. I hope you realize that you have a gift, and although I'm sure you are capable of accomplishing anything you sent your mind to, I can't imagine you be in any other field.  I'm sure you will accomplish anything you set your mind to."  Cynthia MacIntyre - Partner Ernst & Young

“Kimberley has uncovered what lies beneath the surface and has challenged me to think about many aspects of career and life balance, including developing a greater appreciation of my core values, through to designing a legacy." In short, over the period that Kimberley has been coaching me, I have felt that I have developed as a better professional advisor and career counsellor and have become a more well-balanced person. Many friends and colleagues have remarked on how the personal change has inspired and motivated them to achieve their own personal and professional goals. I can only thank you once again for providing me with this opportunity and I hope that others in a similar position can also benefit from the same rewarding experience.” ~Private client & Partner

"Kimberley, you have been an amazing mentor, a truly inspirational leader and a great friend. Your continued guidance has helped me unlock the simple yet complex truth of the art of true greatness. It has allowed me to discover the things in life that make me feel whole, innovative and motivated. It has also allowed me to focus on the exquisite yet rare leadership balance by connecting the head to manage and the heart to lead." ~Private client & Partner

“There are some you remember in life that really "touched" or had an impact on you. And let me tell you, you are one of them. You are indeed - genuine.” `Joanne VanStrien, Partner, Ernst and Young

“Kimberley changed my life. I've been coached and coached all my career, but Kimberley was the first person that took the time to actually listen. Her ability to understand situations and provide constructive and creative solutions is special. The model of respect that she coaches will allow anyone to improve their success personally and professionally.” Keith MacDougall,  Senior Manager PWC
