Client Spotlight - Bridging the Gap Award Winner Adam Odom of LSL CPAs and Advisors

Posted By Heather Robinson, Wednesday, August 31, 2016

For Adam Odom of LSL CPAs, it all comes down to passion and people. As a math major at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, California, Odom questioned the career opportunities available post-college. Figuring accounting would be the “next best thing”, Odom fell in love with accounting in his very first class. He went to work at a public accounting firm after graduating in 2006 and stayed there until he joined LSL seven years later.

At LSL, Odom is known for engaging younger staff and working with them to enhance their career goals and opportunities, although he never had a formal mentor himself. The first firm he worked for did not have a formal mentorship program, but he still credits them with providing excellent support in the form of other audit staff and seniors who were always willing to help answer any questions he had. Today, Odom loves every minute of working at LSL. “It is such a great firm to work for. I feel like everyone is treated with respect and I feel very appreciated at our firm. Everyone is great to work for, and the partners are above and beyond anything I ever would have expected.”

Known for his hard work and positive attitude, Odom may not have had a formal mentor earlier in his career, but it is clear that he benefitted from having some very influential positive role models, including people from his church, school and family. Odom credits his father for passing along a strong work ethic. His father worked in construction and despite having a tough job, Odom never heard him complain. When Odom went to work for his father during the summer, he was advised to “walk from A to B as fast as you can and work as hard as you can. Don’t ever slack off.” Odom still carries that mindset with him, whether he is mentoring younger staff at LSL, helping a friend move, or working with a client to grow their business.

Get to know Adam

Odom met his wife LuAnna on their first day of college at Vanguard University. They married in 2006 and just celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary. They have two children, Liliana (6) and Elijah (3) as well as a beagle named Bruiser. Outside of work, Odom loves soccer and plays every Thursday night.

At the 2016 Boomer Technology Circles Summit, Odom received the Bridging the Gap as an Emerging Leader Award in recognition of his commitment to mentorship, his positive attitude and constant focus on finding improvements and efficiencies in any project he takes on.

Adaptive Expertise at Work

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 10, 2016
Updated: Thursday, February 18, 2016

Part 10 of 10. Dr. Wesch concludes his presentation with a moving tribute to the unique ability of humans to excel in the realm of adaptive expertise. 5 minutes.

Computers armed with big data and complex algorithms are quickly enveloping areas of expertise that were once the sole domain of human experts; writing articles, trading stocks, making music, making complex medical diagnoses, and of course, doing our taxes.

In this new environment we must not just provide our clients with conventional routine expertise, but also with our creative and adaptive expertise - the capacities we have developed to address novel, messy, complex problems that are frequently encountered in the real world.

As a keynote speaker at the 2015 Boomer Technology Circles™ Summit in Kansas City, Dr. Michael Wesch describes the key elements that will allow us to make our way toward adaptive expertise, and how to bring this expertise to clients.  Following are ten excerpts that can be accessed by our members in the “Videos for All Circle Members” group blog (you must be signed in).  Titles below will be hyperlinked as they are released to a public area during the upcoming months.

  1. You Need to Stop. Dr. Wesch outlines his presentation and warns the audience that they're about to lose their jobs to Algorithms. 3 minutes.

  2. A Great Way to Learn About Technology. Dr. Wesch starts a humorous narrative explaining how living in a land that has no technology taught him about technology. 5 minutes.

  3. Feeling Safe to Fail. Dr. Wesch tells a touching story to introduce the concept of Adaptive Expertise. 3 minutes.

  4. Nurture or Keep in the Box. Dr. Wesch recounts the inspirational story of former BBC broadcaster Peter White to demonstrate how nurturing and learning environments influence whether we excel at routine or adaptive expertise. 5 minutes.

  5. Introduction to Algorithms. Dr. Wesch gives some historical perspective to the use of algorithms by companies such as Google and Facebook. 6 minutes.

  6. How Algorithms Are Used, Pt. 1. Dr. Wesch provides fascinating examples from sciences and arts to prove that algorithms are already outperforming humans in many tasks that require routine expertise. 6 minutes.

  7. How Algorithms Are Used, Pt. 2. Dr. Wesch provides additional examples from sciences and arts to prove that algorithms are already outperforming humans in many tasks that require routine expertise. 6 minutes.

  8. The Future of Accounting. Dr. Wesch summarizes what many experts in the profession are predicting and warns that disruption is on the way. 4 minutes.

  9. Fostering an Adaptive Expertise Environment. Dr. Wesch offers his prescription to make meaningful change. 3 minutes.

  10. Adaptive Expertise at Work. Dr. Wesch concludes his presentation with a moving tribute to the unique ability of humans to excel in the realm of adaptive expertise. 5 minutes.
