Unveiling the hidden traits of an outstanding CFO

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is often perceived as the guardian of a company's finances, primarily focusing on numbers, budgets, and driving shareholder value. While these are fundamental aspects of their role, there are other critical traits that define an outstanding CFO, traits that go beyond financial acumen. These lesser-known characteristics are pivotal in navigating today's complex business landscape and contribute to the success and resilience of a company, its senior team, and its employees.

Emotional Intelligence
An outstanding CFO doesn't just understand numbers; they understand people. Emotional intelligence, the ability to perceive, evaluate, and respond to one's own emotions and the emotions of others, is vital in leadership. A CFO with high emotional intelligence can effectively manage team dynamics, creating a work environment that fosters productivity, creativity, and satisfaction. Their empathy allows for better investor and lender relations, as they communicate not just facts, but also confidence and company vision.

Picture a sprawling Midwestern farm, where the earth is as generous as the people tending to it - this is where the story of DeAnn McClain, Heartland Dental's COO, begins.

She applies the same care and attention to detail in leading her team and helping Heartland Dental’s supported doctors in her role as the company’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
