Read this Human Resources leaders:
“The most important thing a CFO does is to quantify and contextualize a path, to myth-bust and to disrupt the status quo. You become relevant when you have intellectual curiosity and a capacity to understand the needs of your colleagues and businesses, and the courage to then have a point of view. This is not about being the bad cop, it’s about having the willingness to engage in a healthy debate over a strategic direction, to listen to others’ views, and then to help effect compromises to move the strategy forward.”
~Rose Marcario, COO and CFO of Patagonia Inc.
