Technical skills are a given for finance professionals, whether you work in an accounting or financial services firm, or in industry. It is essential for finance professionals to communicate effectively, drive greater operational efficiency and build critical management. Developing leadership skills to help you, your team and the organisation grow is the need of the hour.

For example:

  • As finance professionals you need to engage with your investor clients by communicating the financial information related to investments, in a structured, professional manner using jargon-free language. This enables clients to make informed decisions.
  • Newly qualified accounting and tax professionals and graduates who work directly with clients play a key part in managing client relationships and expectations.
  • New managers may have a number of years’ professional, technical experience but may not necessarily possess robust management experience. 
  • As people with technical expertise grow professionally and become managers, they should be able to delegate and influence; empower and engage with their teams; manage conflicts and difficult conversations; be responsive to change and be resilient in today’s testing times.

How do you create stand out teams, when budgets are tight, time is short and managers need to strike balance between empathy and productivity?
