Join me on May 23, 2013 as I present a Webinar on the following topic:
CFO Succession: The Right Way to Grow your Company’s next CFO
This session is graciously hosted by Proformative, and there is no charge for attending this seminar. To sign up, please click on this link.
Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) know that they will not stay in their current role with their current company forever. The CFO needs to ensure that his or her team has the right talent that can be called upon to replace them when they eventually leave the company (or the role of CFO). Strong CFOs also know that they are only as strong as the weakest leader on their team. This session will discuss the right way for the CFO to attract, retain and develop financial leadership talent for their team, while ensuring that they are setting the stage and preparing for their own eventual succession.
After attending this webinar you will be able to:
- Understand why your success depends on having the best possible leadership talent in your finance team
- Learn how to identify which areas to develop your finance leaders for future success
- Become aware of the key components necessary to attract, retain and develop your company’s next CFO and other future finance leaders
CPE Credits are available for this session. For further information, please see details in the “CPE Info” tab on the sign up page.
I attended the webinar and was quite intriguing..)) lots of open questions and comments ..))
I was interested the most by your answers during the Q& A period. You mentioned “soft skills” required for a CFO ( like presenting, negotiating and I think “inviting someone to lunch”..)) My question to you is how do you assess this kind of skills ? Also how do you define or assess someone’s management skills during an interview? What do you look to see and what you don’t like to see/hear ?
