Research for our joint report with Wharton Business Consulting found that in an environment of accelerated change, human skills were at the forefront for finance leadership success.

Compelling insights and perspectives gathered through in-depth interviews with finance leaders led to further understanding of what’s needed to successfully evolve their teams. This is especially true regarding the key attributes and mindsets needed to influence their organization’s future in crucial areas such as finance transformation.

Research for our joint report with Wharton Business Consulting found that in an environment of accelerated change, human skills were at the forefront for finance leadership success.

Compelling insights and perspectives gathered through in-depth interviews with finance leaders led to further understanding of what’s needed to successfully evolve their teams. This is especially true regarding the key attributes and mindsets needed to influence their organization’s future in crucial areas such as finance transformation.

Here’s what we discovered:

  • Leaders who successfully led their teams in this changing environment were shown to have four distinct but connected traits:

    • Connected Influencer

    • Authentic Disruptor

    • Inquisitive Storyteller

    • Rational Value Creator

  • Mindsets and attributes are emerging beyond technical skills.

  • Leaders face real challenges in developing these traits.

  • The finance function needs to evolve to facilitate and grow these attributes.

Explore the white paper to find out how these critical traits are defined, learn practical tips and get assessments on how they can support the learning and development of your team.
