The Strategic CFO developed the Financial Leadership Training Program or the Financial Leadership Workshop to help those managing the numbers to become financial leaders. Is our Financial Leadership Training Program is the right program for you? Read below to find out.
The Strategic CFO's Financial Leadership Training
The Strategic CFO developed our financial leadership training to take those in charge of the numbers to where they are leading and making decisions with the numbers. The key is leadership. In our 4-day course, we go through a variety of topics that very financial leader needs to know about. Read about each day's curriculum below:
Day 1: Paradigm Shift
Many see the accounting and finance function as number crunchers or bean counters. But those numbers, when used in a leadership capacity, can generate so much business, profits, cash flow, etc. The 1st day of the series is all about making that paradigm shift. Participants also learn about the change in the accounting function and the life cycle of the financial leader. Finally, we give participants all the tools we use with ourselves and our consulting clients to improve profits and cash flow. These tools have unlocked millions of dollars of untapped profits and cash flow.
Day 2: Improving Profitability
If you asked a general accountant how to improve profitability, you will most likely hear to cut costs. But there is only so many costs that you can cut before you risk cutting the wrong corners. Day 2 is all about improving profitability and becoming a strategic leader. Participants learn how to analyze customers, provide incentive compensation, price for profit, and improve productivity.
Day 3: Financing and Cash Flow
We also know the phrase... Cash is King. So, we dedicated an entire day all to CASH. Participants evaluate their financing and cash flow needs. They also learn what the bank expects of them so when they need the bank's help, they already have the relationship.
Day 4: Leadership
This is many of our alumni's favorite day! We take everything participants have already learn and further develop financial leadership skills. Participants will go beyond the numbers. They will also be equipped with career guidance – how to go where you want to go.
