Welcome to the Personal Effectiveness module in your GrowCFO Finance Team Development Programme.
Personal effectiveness is the ability to achieve your goals and objectives to a high standard in a timely and efficient manner. Recent studies show that finance team members with high levels of personal effectiveness earn significantly more than their less-effective counterparts and progress far quicker through their careers.

This involves setting priorities, organizing your time and resources, and staying focused on achieving your goals to a high standard. This will help you to stand out as a high performer and be trusted to take on exciting new opportunities.
