The Chief Financial Officer is always concerned about what their Chief Executive Officer thinks. And too often, they believe that their CEO does not take their input as seriously as they would like them to.
Well, CFO, here is some research that shows you should have more confidence in yourself.
According to recent research from American Express and CFO Research, “CEO-level executives in the survey tend to give more weight to their CFOs’ input than even their CFOs themselves recognize.”
To summarize, 92% of CEOs believe that you (the CFO) are either an influential or determining factor in helping them come to strategic and operational decisions, while only 77% of CFOs feel that they have that same impact on their CEOs.
You may be more successful than you think.
