Most aspiring CFOs fail to develop the required combination of knowledge, characteristics, skills and experience prior to landing their first CFO role. They struggle to identify which responsibilities will best prepare them for their first CFO role and often under-invest in the necessary learning and development activities. Many CFO candidates don’t know what they don’t know and are unable to convincingly portray their biggest strengths and skills gaps during a recruitment process.

Nearly all first-time CFOs suffer from the same challenges during their first few years of delivering the role. Most people regularly feel overwhelmed with tasks, 85% lack confidence due to Imposter Syndrome, particularly during board meetings, and many are undervalued by their leadership team. Other common challenges include struggling to influence others, making insufficient contributions towards strategy, being seen as a barrier, and lacking overall impact.

The CFO role is constantly evolving and placing new demands on even the most experienced CFO. There are always new challenges to address and skills to learn.
