The Outsourced CFO as Superhero
A fractional or outsourced CFO has a particularly challenging job. They are often tasked with saving a company from financial horrors (instantaneously) while simultaneously creating trusted relationships with company leaders and employees. In short, they are asked to do one thing: become a superhero.
Superheros have special qualities. They can see what’s wrong and fix it. They can quickly identify who is an ally, fan, or enemy. And they use those powers to create miracles and long-lasting influence.
To help you be a successful outsourced CFO superhero, you’ll need to find your allies starting the first day on the job. Here’s who you should meet, find common ground, and partner with to solve strategic problems.
