Success Follows Significance

with Shay Wheat, CEO, Grace & Ease Productions
and Joey Havens, Author of Leading with Significance

This week on Creating Powerful Impact author Joey Havens, joins Shay Wheat to share how “Leading with Significance” created a company culture at Horne, allowing them to scale to the top 25 CPA companies.

As Joey transitioned to managing partner, he wanted to understand why there was a higher rate of turnover. Instead of focusing on the client experience first, Horne switched to focusing on the company’s culture and creating a people first environment that transferred to a WOW experience for the clients.
