Finance Directors frequently progress from being a controller and a good accountant or treasurer into a new role where they are expected to participate in developing strategy, manage a group and exercise leadership as well as keeping on top of the numbers. The CFO Leadership Programme has been designed by a former Finance Director with global responsibility as well as considerable management development expertise for Finance Directors and aspiring Finance Directors to address those issues that move from technical expertise to the less structured issues of strategic development as well as leadership. A key aspect is the use of two professional psychometric tools which allow participants to understand their leadership style and how to understand the preferences of their teams and senior colleagues.
A range of strategic models are introduced, using a number of cases and then supported by debate using the real life experience of those on the course. You will understand how to choose performance measures and communicate them to non-financial colleagues to guide your organization in a transformation program that creates value through the alignment of finance capabilities with corporate strategy.
