Women in Finance Fast-Tracking to CEO

They say the CFO is the fastest ‘fast track’ to being a CEO.

So if we look at CEO’s today..

CEO’s today talk about how 20% of executive committees are women. 23% of women are on boards, but only 6% are in CEO roles in the financial institutions.

CFO is the fastest ‘fast track’ to being a CEO.

So if you’re a CFO and you are looking to fast track into being CEO..

What are the things that hold you back?

The main thing that holds you back is your Belief in yourself and Belief in what you are capable of.

We live into what we believe. If we believe becoming a CEO is possible, then we will be able to become a CEO.

If we believe that:
We don’t have the certainty,
We don’t have the confidence to become a CEO,

That belief will hold us back.

So I’m asking you today..

Are you in your own way?

What will it take for you to believe in yourself, step out of your own way and move into the next role that you know is there?
