St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 28, 2011
iShade.com, the free online professional network & community for accountants, has launched a sister website, iShadeLearning.com. This new site focuses on the non-technical CPE training and development needs for leading accountants and their firms, offered through the iShade Learning program.
The iShade Learning curriculum was created to address the growing need for non-technical CPE training tailored to the accounting profession. Known as ‘EQ’ (Emotional Quotient) or soft-skills training, the classes are designed with individual team members in mind. Because of the recurring training schedule firm employees can attend classes at the appropriate stage of their career. Delivered in local markets, the courses are led by seasoned facilitators who understand the accounting profession.
“We know through studies that the development of ‘EQ’ skills can provide a firm with an exponential return on their investment. In fact, a recent study found that partners with highly developed ‘EQ’ skills generate 390% more incremental profit than the baseline partner in a typical accounting firm. This, coupled with the high quality of the instructors, explains why we have had a 100% renewal rate in annual subscriptions in the first market where we introduced iShade Learning,” said iShade CEO Jeffrey S. Pawlow.
The website iShadeLearning.com, features a listing of courses, faculty and testimonials from firm leaders with participants currently enrolled. Also on the site is a calculator to show the subscription investment requirements for a firms’ participation. Individual city schedules and a whitepaper further explaining ‘EQ’ are available for download.
