THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
C-Suite executives assume that their non-financial managers and sales teams understand the financial implications of their decisions. You may be surprised to learn that less than 40% of them are financially literate.
Knowing this, is it reasonable to expect your team to make financially sound decisions?

Does the buck stop with you? Shouldn't everyone in your organization be held financially accountable?
NOBODY WASHES A RENTED CAR
Imagine if everyone on your team would act like an owner? Your employees are an extension of the promise you made to the executive suite, and ultimately to your shareholders. You cannot do it alone.
