Treasury系列之 - Annual Financial Officer Conference (II)

本文发表在 rolia.net 枫下论坛第二天的会议中,公司重金请来的guest speaker给大家做了一次精彩的演讲,on leadership。这位speaker (这里称呼他为"S")对leadership有自己独到的见解,他的一些观点我
很认同也很令人深思,在这里和大家分享一下。

- Many say that leaders are born, but S doesn't feel this to be true. He thinks people evolve into leaders as key leadership attributes (eg vision,
communication, empowerment) are developed and acquired in their unique journeys.


- "Individuals carry their success and their failure with them. It doesn't depend on outside conditions" S asked all the attendees/officers this question
"How many of you would find that that quote to be true in your life?". Some of the officers said they buy into that, and others said "maybe yes
and maybe no, depend on circumstances". I was one of the others. S then asked "how would you define success in your life?", everyone answered differently,
of course, but no one answered that money alone defines success. S told us a quite interesting story, twenty years ago, at a networking function,
he met a young lady and asked her the question "What do you do?", the lady's response was that she was a CFO for a small but on going business. S then
asked her to tell him more. She told S that she was a housewife and mother of five (CFO for a small but on going business - her family). She had achieved
her definition of success. Very interesting. Going back to the S's previous quote and as a little exercise for everyone on this forum, on a scale of
zero to one hundred, how much do you find this quote to be true for you?

- S thinks we should all recognize that life is too short to go through it in misery. It is imperative that we live to be happy. A true leader
searches for solutions and helps others find solutions to the challenges they encounter. Simply forget about our problems and focus on finding the
solutions and get over with.

    • Sofa! 守株待兔法得到实践。:-) Joyce: I really enjoy reading this part, seriously. Thank you.
    • 不给你精华了吧, 不太像会计论坛的文章, 更象manager论坛的, 不过要上导读, 让更多职场中人看到.//How much do you find this quote to be true for you? My answer is 50, yes and no.
      我想世界上有两种Leader, Born to be a leader, 和 Trained to be a leader. A true leader should be problem solver indeed!
      • "50%,yes & no" - 结论是你还不是个好的leader! (kidding...) 我们这帮officers的选择没有低于80%的。超过一半选了100% (totally buy into that), 这一半里包括了CFO, my boss Treasurer and few other Sr. VPs,
        可见职位越高的leadership能力也越强 (当然不排除这帮officers抄袭each other的可能性, haha!)
      • 偏心,会计论坛就不能谈leadership了,对做到会计部门管理层的同学们来说leadership的能力比会计知识更重要。//不过这篇是没必要加精,这次就放过你吧. :-)
        • Fine, your argument sounds reasonable, and in fact, may be true
