Customer Intimacy: the journey to creating long-lasting, trusted partnerships wtih your clientsCOURSE ID: CUSTINTM

Being technically proficient is a given in accounting, but nowadays it is simply not enough: you must be able to differentiate yourself as an individual and as an organization, by becoming an invaluable trusted advisor to your clients. This course takes an innovative approach to building long-lasting, authentic relationships with clients based on the principle that it starts with self-awareness and self-control. We believe that developing a clear consciousness of self, through the practice of mindfulness, understanding and managing trust, and applying the basics of conscious communications, services providers can achieve stronger, more dynamic and holistic client relationships.
