Webinar 'YOUR STAKEHOLDERS ARE NOT IDIOTS'
25 October 2018
Two words that are used to describe finance leaders by the non-finance leadership community, captured in our recent research survey. Of course, this is not all a reflection of all in finance, but too common not to take notice.
Talita Ferreira, ex CFO of BMW UK & Ireland understands the shift in reputation well. Once a finance leader who often could overpower the business with intellect, deep knowledge of the numbers and a capacity to quickly find an answer, she soon realisedthat her business were allies, not competitors. Adopting a new approach in her role at BMW, her leadership thrived, as did her passion for the change she was able to deliver. This lead to her following this passion in a different way, launching Authentic Change Solutions.
In this webinar, they explored:
The risk finance leaders can fall into by assuming the business are ‘idiots’
The importance of empathy, and how to demonstrate this as a finance leader
Strategies for elevating personal leadership in a busy finance function.
