Course description

FD Development – achieving the CEO mind-set

Why should shareholders appoint you as their CEO and what will motivate them to keep you in post?
This two-day course is about you, your personal journey and your personal development. It focuses on the areas in which you need to change in order to bridge the gap between being a senior financial professional and being the CEO: your behaviour towards the organisation, your interaction with the Board and your leadership mind-set.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course throws you a challenge to test your readiness for working at the CEO level. It is for you if you are a:

  • senior finance executive who is preparing to move into a CEO role or wanting to develop a broader based skill set to offer your organisation
  • senior finance executive aiming to move to a CEO role and looking for insights into how you can achieve your goal
  • qualified finance individual aspiring to be a future CEO
  • senior finance individual planning to grow on a personal and business level through learning non-finance techniques and perspectives
  • current CEO wanting to reflect on your practice.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

  • developing your interpersonal skills by analysing and working on your behaviours, your mind-set and your experience: whether you need to enable your transition from FD to CEO or to maximise your potential in your existing CEO role, the key components of success are your outward behaviour to the whole organisation, your personal mind-set and your ability to gain insights from valuable experience. In this course you will develop tools and a skill set to analyse your impact and perceptions within your organisation.
  • getting to grips with sales and operations: for any finance professional, moving into a new role as CEO will involve working alongside executives in the key strategic areas of sales and operations and supporting their management of their teams. The skill sets and personalities involved in these business areas are significantly different from those of a finance professional. This course gives you the knowledge of how good sales processes operate, how to observe and monitor operational processes and how to identify and understand the challenges they face. Armed with these skills you are prepared for an informed dialogue with your fellow management team executives.
  • benefitting from peer to peer learning and networking: this course provides an excellent opportunity to interact and network with a professional peer group. Share experience, learn from each other’s different perspectives and take time out for personal development. The more senior you become the greater the value of external relationships in growing both your own skills and your organisation.
