Welcome Finance Executives!

Welcome to CFO Thought Leader

Where your passion and our mission UNITE!

Below are 3-steps to help propel you on your thought leader’s journey!

Step 1: Master Your Narrative

For finance executives, who find their leadership roles broadening, a professional narrative has never been more important as finance leaders reach out to build relationships with other internal departments and with external stakeholders.

It seems that just as every good salesman is armed with a potent elevator pitch, finance executives these days must wield a finely distilled narrative boiled down to individual, bite-size portions.

This is not to say that many CFOs don’t quickly serve up an engaging and lively response. Quite a few have done just that on our CFO Thought Leader Podcast, but it’s the stark differences between those finance leaders who quickly engage us and those who take us down the Amazon that exposes how powerful a polished professional narrative can be in the hands of a seasoned finance leader.

Interestingly, it seems while we’re asking finance leaders to look back, the best answer frequently points to the future.  

Step 2: Take a Leadership Leap (Reveal Your Passion)

By venturing outside the finance function, finance chiefs are today seeking to learn firsthand how finance can better partner with sales executives, marketing executives, and general managers. At the same time, finance chiefs have never been more introspective as they assess the qualities they possess that can best empower them to lead beyond the traditional finance realm.

To broaden their span of influence beyond finance, and advance down the thought leader path, finance leaders must take a leadership leap and adopt a new set of tools that can help them engage and inspire managers and other employees.

While driving change is the goal of every thought leader’s journey, passion is what fuels every leader’s stride and how that passion is transmitted to others is what ultimately determines the success of your journey.
