Most football-loving and commercial-loving Americans are getting ready to watch Super Bowl LVI this Sunday where the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will face off in L.A. As the country prepares for the big game, we decided to take a look at some business lessons that can be taken from the Super Bowl. Here are 3 things your business can learn from the Super Bowl.
It’s important for every professional in all fields to remain open-minded to adjustments. Like in football, the plan you make to prepare for the big game might need to be changed in the second half depending on how the first half went. For example, when you first start working with a client, you also develop a game plan to help them achieve their goals. Even though starting out with a plan is a great idea, it’s important not to follow the original plan too strictly. Try to keep an open mind and be ready to adjust the original plan as new challenges arise. Don't get too caught up in the planning/adjusting stage—take the time to celebrate each touchdown! Each touchdown is another step closer to your firm's overall goals.
It’s important to know your opponent in football, and similarly, it’s important to know your competition in business. As the accounting industry continues to change and innovate with technology, it’s crucial for your firm to remain competitive in the market. Another industry shift experts are predicting now, is the change to value-based pricing vs. billing for your time. Many accounting professionals are also expanding the scope of their firm by offering advisory services to their clients. Making sure you are aware of the latest industry trends will help you stay ahead of your competition and stand out as the best option to potential clients. Don't fumble the opportunity to intercept your competition! 🏈
This one is an obvious lesson that can be learned from watching pretty much any team sport, but it’s still a valuable one to spotlight nonetheless. Encouraging teamwork at your office can increase morale, bring in new ideas, and improve efficiency. Teamwork helps raise employee morale since workers feel heard and a part of something bigger than just their individual role. Hosting group team building sessions can lead to brainstorming new ideas which in turn improves processes at your firm. Incorporating teamwork into your firm’s management strategy will inevitably improve your overall performance—no one person has all the answers and teamwork evens out the workload.

Canopy takes the headaches out of client management by offering a way to keep client info organized.
I love how easy it is to setup a new client in this software. Once set up, it's one click to get IRS transcripts downloaded for my review. This saves me at least an hour each week in comparison to the software I used to use.
This makes workflow for tax resolution manageable. This business is a bunch of hurry up and wait. This system helps to refresh my memory while transitioning to different clients.
The ability to securely share documents with clients as well as complete POAs from client contact data already in Canopy. The ability to route workflow between team members with color coded statuses allows us to work efficiently.
