One of the common questions I get asked relates to meeting resistance in the business.
For instance, I was explaining in a webinar recently that Finance and the CFO are like coaches to the business. We provide the performance management framework.
And someone said, “what if colleagues in the business don’t want to be coached?”
It’s a really good point.
And it’s worth knowing how to address the issue, because if you think about it, great CFOs don’t seem to have this problem.
So, if you want to progress in your career you need to develop those kind of CFO skills that will give you influence within the business.
It also affects your job satisfaction as a Finance professional. Because it’s disheartening when you can see that you really can make a difference and add value, but no-one seems interested in what you have to say.
Here's a little video clip of my answer to that question.
