Program Description:

Words like nimble, adaptable, and insatiably curious are just some of the attributes that have been associated with what it takes to make it as a successful CEO.

You on the other hand, have made it to the highest level in finance because of your stability and dependability to keep your team within the bounds and following the rules.

To be a successful CEO, according to the experts, you need to go from rule follower to rule maker (and sometimes breaker!) – how do you make this metamorphosis from CFO to CEO– do you have what it takes?

Find out what measures it takes to go from the finance function to ultimately landing in the role as CEO.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn specific actions the CFO can take today to help secure a CEO role in the future
  • Understand the personal attributes and skills needed to become an effective CEO
  • Learn the differentiators of successful CFO’s and successful CEO’s and understand the importance of making the necessary changes
