We offer advice to accounting faculty who have achieved a level of seniority at their school. Seniority is accompanied by increasing autonomy, and we encourage senior faculty to use that autonomy to focus their efforts on building up others. We discuss three facets where this can be done: research, service, and teaching. We also offer recommendations on avoiding the pitfalls of power that often accompany seniority. The downsides of power can be avoided if senior faculty members are introspective and ethical in their role as a leader at their school.
