Synopsis: How much guidance are financial executives getting in developing their leadership talents? The authors of this new study interviewed financial executives and human resources executives at eight companies that have demonstrated progressive thinking in developing the "leverage competencies" of their finance staff. They define leverage competencies as those personal characteristics and sets of habits required to reach true finance leadership in an organization. This path-breaking study uncovers the collaborative efforts that companies are implementing–or struggling with–to help finance executives understand the new realities of leadership and the behavioral changes required of them. It is about effective leadership behavior and what it will take to ensure that finance executives can meet the lofty business challenges and shareholder initiatives with which they are increasingly confronted. This book will be invaluable reading for executives, human resource professionals, and students.
