Coaching for Financial Leaders
Every great team should have a strong financial leader who can confidently contribute to growth.
We teach controllers and accounting managers in midsized businesses how to think and lead like a CFO.
We believe that excellent financial leaders can:
Provide simple and actionable analysis of future opportunities
Create budgets and forecast that are understood by all
Present data to internal and external parties
Be advocates for growth
Contribute to a high performing leadership team
Becoming a Financial Leader
Great financial leaders are able to easily tell stories that make the financial statements and results relatable and clear to all. The financial statements are highly motivating tools in well led organizations.
The key differentiator for a strong financial leader or a CFO, is a focus on the future and the ability to communicate simply.
They are able to look at historical data, perform analysis and make recommendations to leadership that guide the company to its goals.
Can a Controller learn how to lead like a CFO?
CFO’s are not made purely by time on the job, advanced collegiate education, or fancy certifications.
We believe that the primary driver for a great CFO is actually seeing a CFO in practice.
Midsized businesses often grow into needing a CFO. They don’t have a hierarchy that paves the way. So the controller or accounting manager never sees the work of a CFO.
They just don’t know what they don’t know.
BauerHouse coaching fills this gap by introducing controllers to expert CFO practices over the course of 8 weeks.
