CFO Notes: Emotional Intelligence - Thoughts From Guita Sharifi, CFO Of AIDS Services Foundation

Posted by Beth McCullough on Fri, Apr 07, 2017 @ 04:39 PM

Why are some CFOs more successful than others in their career?  The answer: Emotional intelligence, as exhibited through self awareness, self regulation, internal motivation, and empathy.  With 15 years of experience as a CFO, I am the right hand to my CEO and, without these qualities, I would not be able to flourish.   My advice to you: Managing internal emotions, empathy, and social skills are critical to enhance your ability to support your CEO.   Stay aware and follow your passion!
