    6. The Benefits of Women in Leadership w/ Lydia Adams

    6. The Benefits of Women in Leadership w/ Lydia Adams

    Women in leadership often create better, more profitable workplaces. 
    Yet, as late as 2018, women held just one out of every 20 CEO spots. And in middle management, women sat in only 40% of managers' chairs despite accouting for 50% of the workforce. Yet there are clear reasons why companies should eagerly look to promote women and ensure they're engaged.
    What are the benefits of women in leadership?
    On this episode of the CFO Weekly podcast, Lydia Adams, vice president, marketing & communications at Personiv, discusses the benefits of having women in leadership roles.
    What we talked about with Lydia:
    -Facts and figures about women in leadership positions
    -Why more women in leadership improves a group's problem-solving abilities
    -Why female leaders are more trusted
    -The changes Millennial and Gen Z women could bring to the workplace
    -...And the dollar benefits a company can realize by expanding the number of women in leadership roles!

    4. Earning a Seat at the Strategic Table w/ Steven Nutt, CPA

    You’ve seen the stereotypes. 
    CFOs are nerds. 
    They’re calculator jockeys, sitting in the corner with their pencils and spreadsheets, holed up away from people, making the numbers work. 
    And while a CFO does need to be an accounting expert, they’re so much more than that. 
    On a recent episode of CFO Weekly, got to talk with Steven Nutt, CPA about the ever-evolving role of the CFO. We talked all about: 
    -The ever changing role of the CFO
    -Why the CFO should be the ultimate data champion
    -Why data is more important than ever before

    If you do outsource, what hours will your international team be available? And how many people in another country actually want to work overnight to support U.S. hours, anyway?

    -Rule #1 — Decide your office hours in advance and stick to them.
    -Rule #2 — Separate work from sanctuary. (Or … why you'll never be able to eat a meal in peace at that table again.)
    -Rule #3 — Use your commute time wisely. How you spend the time between when you wake up and when you start work forms your mindset for the rest of the day.
    -...And Ali's seven other rules for success!
