Why are we paying lip service to the topic Finance?
Why are we not ‘putting our money (energy)💸 where our mouths (words) 👄are❓’
I have spoken to so many finance professionals, leaders and CFO’s during and before the lockdown and they all echo the importance of developing themselves and their leadership approach.
They all talk about how important it is that the team functions effectively and is developed and engaged.
Perversely, I too didn’t believe I had time to invest in these activities when I started out. It was a very wise coach that suggested I focus on #leadership and #teamdynamics after issues in my team & multiple complaints from me about performance.
Why do we not prioritise better, if we know this? Is it:
❇️Because of the age-old time excuse❓
❇️Outside our comfort zone❓
❇️I don’t really know how and it would cost money or research time to find out❓
❇️I am convinced I need to get the work done first and when I am on top of it, I will change focus❓
Newsflash – the great leaders start with developing themselves and their teams and then everything else falls in place – high performance, career opportunities, better customer service etc.
