Problem-solving Abilities: A CFO needs to make small and big decisions every day that will affect the future of the company. A good CFO looks for “win-win” solutions rather than just trying to get a “good deal” to solve a quandary. He must also be knowledgeable of the company, its resources, and data so that he can create a plan that will ensure the company’s growth and success.
Leadership Skills and Strategic Vision: A good CFO must always look at a problem objectively so that he can formulate a strategic solution. He must also be proactive in creating and executing plans to demonstrate his leadership skills. A CFO can’t totally be just a “numbers guy”—he must also go out once in a while to have experience in the field.
A Good CFO Must be Reliable: There’s a lot of pressure on a CFO and one of the skills he must possess is how to work under pressure reliably. He must produce timely and correct information and should be willing to do the necessary steps to bring out valuable results. An effective CFO is open-minded and is willing to accept change, but at the same time, knows how to get the ball rolling.
