Effective collaboration amongst the C-suite and with external partners is key to successful innovation and growth, ACCA (the
Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) claims in a new guide.
CFOs and the C-Suite – focusing on effective collaboration explores what lies at the heart of successful collaboration and suggests that those working within the finance function have an opportunity to take a key leadership role in developing collaboration within organisations.
ACCA senior manager Omid Tissier said: “CFOs need to become collaborative leaders and this requires honing their ‘softer’ skills, from effective conflict management to an entrepreneurial mind-set and advanced emotional intelligence. These are particular focus areas that will allow leaders to collaborate more effectively.”
