Brush up your finance skills

Robyn Watts gave a presentation at Ascend in Brisbane on the 10 building blocks to successful leadership – and one of the key take home points that I’ve know attendees appreciated was her point regarding the critical importance of high financial literacy. Robyn  believes that for women wanting to lead and in particular to get on boards they have to understand how to read a balance sheet.  

But many managers aren’t fluent in reading balance sheets, aren’t comfortable with finance essentials or preparing a business plans. I found this CD-rom resource from the Harvard Business Review that I think would be really helpful for people who want a refresher (or crash) course on financials. They all include tips, self-tests, tools and interactive exercises.

Check them out here.
