Webinar (CPA Crossings): Delivering Bad News? Don’t Be the Messenger Who Gets Shot!

Description

The average CFO’s tenure is about three years, while the tenure for other financial positions may not be much better. One cause may be our responsibility to deliver BAD news. Sadly, sometimes the messenger gets shot. How can some people deliver the bad news and actually strengthen their position, while others find themselves without a job?

Many financial professionals believe that, “I just need to know the numbers really well to keep my job.” Every day proves this fallacy wrong. How you say it – is often more important than what you say. This session will teach you proven techniques to deliver bad news so that you actually strengthen your relationship with your CEO, Board, bank and management team.
