The Purpose of the Financial Leadership Workshop

The purpose of our financial leadership development program is to develop the financial skills of entrepreneurial companies and result in higher profits and cash flow. It will empower financial professionals to overcome challenges they commonly face. These challenges often prevent career paths from advancing rapidly —

  • It is not clear what a CEO wants from the CFO or organizational leader
  • There is no mentorship path for someone to advance to CFO
  • The Financial Leader may be in charge of finances but they are not considered a strategic leader in an organization

Who is the current financial leader in your company? Often, it is the entrepreneur or CEO. They are regularly the only one who is responsible for the profitability of the company. They need help! We solve the challenges preventing accelerated growth in your career, whether you’re the CFO, CEO, or aspiring to a similar position, by compacting years of experience into coaching workshops.

What’s In It for You?

The topics taught in our workshops for financial leadership development enable you to not only be a CFO (many of our participants are CFOs), but to also become the central financial leader in your company (regardless of title). With our workshops, we empower you to become an influencer and decision-maker. You’ll walk away prepared to do the following —

  • See your role from a different perspective and, in turn, present yourself as a valuable financial leader, not just a number-cruncher.
  • Adapt to changing technology and confidently continue to add value in an industry that is constantly being automated.
  • Break out of the Life Cycle of the CFO to become a tenured professional in your organization.
  • Rest easy knowing you have cash flow under control (no flying blind).
  • Be the person that keeps the business afloat – you’re the profit-protector.
  • Create relationships internally and externally with ease.
  • Be your CEO’s trusted advisor.

What to Expect in the Financial Leadership Program

The financial executive coaching workshop series consists of 4 days, spread over 4 months. Each day has specific content that allows the participant to immediately put the learning to use and return later to soak up new topics. We select our learning topics based on two pieces of criteria:

  • (1) what we know a financial leader wants and needs and
  • (2) lack of common awareness and understanding in the financial industry
