Consequently, a successful leader in this area needs to be armed with a variety of additional skills, including:  Awareness of organisational and personal psychology  Ability to manage a variety of stakeholders  Knowledge of economic and social changes  Strong and effective communication skills  Political astuteness and emotional intelligence This course is designed to develop and fortify the CFO’s skills and acts as a primer for the attendee to become a more visionary and charismatic finance leader.
