Finance Leaders are the drivers of business growth. 

 

A Finance Leader and their team are built around Leadership/Management, Operational, Management Control, Accounting, and Stakeholder Communications. Every single one of these departments requires clear and understanding communication to function correctly. 

A Finance Leader must sustain revenue growth and improve margins at the same time. Having a communication strategy aligned to your day-to-day operations in the finance department helps maximize your departments’ value and strengthten your team members.  

We provide an eight-part communication intelligence reporting tool system, communication strategy and unparalleled support, that you use to understand the different communication styles around the table. With our customized plans, we facilitate your needs and coach you and your team to communication excellence.

Our system helps you with your role of acquiring great talent, strategizing with the board, leading your finance team and creating a progressive culture.

Strong leadership and frequent communication are always important, but they are crucial during difficult times in order to even maintain employee engagement at current levels, let alone drive it higher – AON Hewitt Whitepaper on thought leadership

What is your CEO looking for?

The CEO of your organization is expecting as a finance leader you are a true partner to the business. The expectation is that you will devise, deliver and communicate a transformative talent strategy to help the organization achieve its strategic goals. 

The Forté system is designed to help create open communication and enable everyone to contribute irrespective of their style. Forté generates team-based data, allowing you to strategize and communicate accordingly.

Driving a Culture of Excellence

As a Finance Leader, you take a leading role in the creation and strengthing of the culture in your organization.

Culture is typically defined as “the way we do things around here”. The C-Suite sets the tone and people follow from the top down, so the emphasis is therefore on how management and leaders communicate their culture.

By using our system, you will understand the cultural descriptors and actionable insights into your leadership team and across the organization.

TERRY CLARK Former DIRECTOR OF SALES & TRAINING, PLY GEM INDUSTRIES

“We profiled our bottom third and our top performers (top 4%) to see if there was a trend line profile. There was. Once we identified that, we began recruiting. We found that when the Forté profile along with their background, product knowledge, and communication skills, all aligned, we were more successful with getting that person into the selling mode than other groups.”
