In the current business environment agility is a necessity, and many traditional opportunities for competitive advantage have disappeared, organisations are expecting more from their finance teams than ever before. In order to meet the challenges presented by this dynamic business environment, finance professionals must rapidly evolve their skill-sets, pursue a renewed focus on performance and value creation and have a firm grasp on what it means to be a true business partner. Leadership skills are pivotal in making this transformation a reality.
Finance leaders must possess the ability to drive strategic change, communicate and influence at a top level and inspire transformation across the enterprise – from the shop floor to the boardroom. In order to progress and break through to the next level finance professionals need shift their focus to ensure leadership and people management skills are on their development radar. Refining these skills will ultimately increase the opportunities to acquire higher level roles.
