Never before has the role of the CFO been more complex, multi faceted and rewardingExhibit 1 A winning CFO model
The CFO is now juggling more balls in the air than ever before, in front of an audience that is more demanding and knowledgeable. What makes the difference from average to good and from good to great CFO performance? I believe I have the answer. The model I have developed is based on countless years of bench marking CFO’s from all sectors and whose success varied from poor to great.
Once the foundation stones in place, you can now use them as a platform from which to juggle the areas of focus, see Exhibit 1, that make up being a winning CFO. Many of the focus areas have a soft skills component, an area which is often not on the CFOs radar screen. These have been marked with an ‘S’.
I have developed much material to help revolutionize the CFO performance:
- A serving leader white paper that will lift your leadership up
- A number of whitepapers on finance team topics
- Three books
- Numerous public workshops
- In-house, implementation focused, one and two day workshops
