As a talent development professional at a business, law firm, government agency or not-for profit organization, are your staff:
- commercially aware
- communicating effectively between departments
- making optimal decisions
- understanding and meeting financial goals
- clear about how their role impacts profitability
- blindly copying last year's budget
- scared by financial information?
Why Color Accounting®
Color Accounting is a revolutionary new way of quickly and easily understanding financial information in one day. It uses diagrams and logical colors to show graphically how accounting works. It builds a potent model of how business works. The result is your employees will use a common language, understand where they fit in, and know how they impact profitability. In the end... they will make better business decisions.
We fully engage the participants with story-telling, hands-on materials, and model-building. It all happens on their desks and in a vivid diagram on the whiteboard. It's wonderful. No boring slides, no power failures, no same old same old.
Right from the start we want our participants to be thinking:
"Hmmm, this seems a little different to what I was expecting. It could even be enjoyable."
"Sure beats the tired old Finance For Non-financial Managers course I sat through before."
The many ways our clients benefit
Where do we start? You can achieve better results because your employees will know how their job impacts the bottom line. They talk with colleagues about finance matters. They even put together budgets. And they act to improve cash flow and meet goals. In short - they become engaged in the results. Oh, and as a little well-being bonus, they get to see their own personal finances in a new light. Basically they're set free when it comes to accounting literacy.
"Word got out about Color Accounting and we have a long waiting list for the workshop. Our facilitators are now running two seminars a month for staff members."
- Louis Biggie
Talent Management and Organization Development,
Johns Hopkins University
"The Color Accounting hands-on approach created energetic, interactive sessions that extended well beyond the classroom. Buckets, boards and business acumen all made their way back to the offices of participants and led to smarter decisions that we can see having an impact on our bottom line."
- Rick Zaporowski
L&D Manager, NMC Caterpillar
"We included the Color Accounting workshop in our annual management conference. We wanted to empower our managers to read and interpret financial statements. When they are accounting literate they are in fact business literate and able to make more-informed decisions, which in turn has an impact on customer service, and ultimately drives profits and shareholder value."
- Ian Leyenaar, CEO Namibia,
First National Bank
