In addition, many accountants aspire to finance leadership roles, such as chief financial officer (CFO). As a result, they must fulfill their traditional responsibilities, while increasing their support of strategic and operational decision-making. Through education, life-long learning, and development, they must acquire the right mixture of skills, experiences, and attitudes, including leadership, strategy, business, management, and interpersonal skills.
