20. How a Leaders Motive Impacts Team Dynamics

00:00 / 00:38:14


Tracey Dean is the Owner and Director of BTS Accounting Services on the Central Coast with over 25 years experience in the finance world. She is very passionate about the continual improvement of the accounting and finance functions in organisations and using this information for improving the strategic business decision making process.

Tracey started her corporate career with McDonald’s Australia where she worked for 12 years as a Corporate Accountant and Tax Manager. Before going back into her Accounting Consultancy which she has been involved in for 10 years, Tracey also spent 3 years as the Chief Financial Officer for a K-12 Independent School.

I often refer to Tracey as a ‘human centred accountant’. Why? Because she is one of the few accountants I know, or have met, that honestly put people first. With this focus, it is only natural that she builds strong and trusted professional relationships with her clients and is a fantastic leader of people. 

The focus of our conversation today is how a Leader’s motive impacts Team Dynamics…
