The psychology of a CFO and how to become one

The role of a CFO is one of the most important in any business. As the head of accounting and finance, you are responsible for overseeing the financial operations of your company. This includes everything from ensuring that all money gets accounted for correctly to keeping track of expenses and expenses incurred by departments within your organization. If you're looking to advance your career in finance or need some help understanding how your current position works, this guide will give you all the information you need!

The keys to advancing in finance

There are several keys to advancing in finance. 

  • The first is understanding the business, so you can make better decisions that align with your company's goals and strategies. 
  • The second key is understanding the financials of your company's operations, so you can see where you can make improvements.
  • The third key is understanding industry trends and opportunities by researching potential competitors or suppliers.

Understanding the role of a CFO

A CFO manages the financial health of a company. The job of a CFO includes:

  • Maintaining accurate accounting records and reporting on them to management.
  • Operating cash flow and expenses, including paying bills on time and keeping track of costs.
  • Ensuring that all financial transactions get recorded accurately so that an outside auditor can audit them to ensure compliance with all laws, regulations, contracts, etc., including tax laws if applicable.

How to become a CFO?

CFOs operate at some of the highest levels of business, making it a career goal for many finance and accounting professionals. However, becoming a CFO requires more than just being good with numbers; they must make executive decisions and lead a company's finances. 

Because of the seniority of this position, graduates must rely on years of experience in addition to their qualifications to obtain this position. You must have extensive industry experience to meet the requirements for the position of chief financial officer. Many CFOs start at an organization's bottom and work their way up, such as with an accounting position.

You can become a CFO in three ways:

  • As the CEO, who leads the company and its finances.
  • As an independent consultant to CEOs and boards of directors on financial matters.
  • As an employee of a more prominent firm.
