Straight Talk Book 7: Breathing Lessons

CFOs today find themselves scrambling in more directions than a good bartender on New Year’s Eve. And no wonder. Pressures for accountability and performance have never been higher.

The truth is, the job itself is getting out of hand. The disintegration of the chief operating officer role has left chief financial officers with a breathtaking range of new responsibilities, some of which come with the potential for jail terms.

Are there CFOs who still manage to “do it all"? You bet. They’re the ones who decide for themselves what “all” really means. And that’s what Breathing Lessons is about.

Our seventh book in the Straight Talk Series helps CFOs understand which activities and investments are truly worthwhile – and which ones are best left to someone else. It also offers practical advice to help you succeed at the things that really matter.
