WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Many leading accounting and financial executives from Fortune 1000 firms convened at one of New York City's premier hotels, The Plaza, to partake in a unique event hosted by The Siegfried Group, LLP. The live event featured networking, refreshments, and a presentation from Hall of Fame Speaker, NY Times bestselling author and leading expert on the science of Fascination, Sally Hogshead.
Ms. Hogshead discussed the concept of how to be the absolute best version of yourself, in order to deliver optimal value in all aspects of your life. She captivated the audience with her interactive presentation that focused on results of the Fascination Assessment that all guests had taken prior to the event. Both Siegfried Professional Resources and guests of the event participated in interactive sessions on stage, where Ms. Hogshead analyzed and explained their individual Archetypes to the audience.
The audience's cumulative results showed how they ranked against other executives as well as the general population. The results showed that attendees ranked much higher on alert and power and much lower on innovation. This shows that the financial professionals who took the assessment are more likely to be at their best when they can focus on leadership tasks or detail oriented tasks. These findings gave tremendous insights into what differentiates financial and accounting executives from other professionals. Participants were given useful tools to help them be effective leaders and that will enable them to build the teams necessary for successful execution.
After the presentation, guests of the event socialized and networked at an after party in the historic Oak Room of The Plaza that featured exquisite food, cocktails and music. Sally held a signing where guests received a complimentary copy of her latest bestselling book "How the World Sees You."
"It was great to introduce the How to Fascinate methodology with executives from other organizations. At Siegfried we have truly incorporated the Fascination Assessment and Anthem tools into our everyday culture. It helps us identify our professional's unique abilities and better understand how they work best, both individually and as a team. Siegfried is dedicated to advising top financial executives on how to achieve their bigger futures through our MY Journey for Executives™ program. This event is just the start of many more initiatives we hope to bring to our clients and friends of the Firm in the future," explains Robert L. Siegfried, Jr., CPA, Founder and CEO.
