Most of my blogs are directed to CFOs.This blog is written for people that benefit from having a great CFO working with them.
Let us count the ways why you should show your CFO some love this Valentine’s Day
1) They make sure you get paid. This is the person ultimately responsible to ensure the company has the cash it needs when it needs it. This person loses sleep over the company’s cash flow so that you don’t have to lose sleep over yours.
2) They care. CFOs are sometimes demonized as Mr. or Ms. “No”. In fact, CFOs spend time agonizing over decisions that need to be made so that you can benefit. You will never know when a proposal crosses the CFOs desk that might have a negative impact on you, and they say “No” to it. But they do.
3) They are loveable people. Really. They are. I speak to a lot of them and they are really good, honest, decent people. If you feel that they’re not, maybe by showing them some love you will benefit too.
Why will you be showing your CFO some Love today?
