Agree with the sentiment.  If you going to develop and improve it is important to work with people you can learn from.  This doesn't necessarily need to be you line manager, or those in senior roles, as much can be learned from the way other employees in the business conduct themselves and prioritise.

This emphasises that accounting is more than just the numbers

Interesting article.  It reinforces the need to network with peers and consider mentoring other members of the profession where appropiate.
