The 3 Financial Styles of Very Successful Leaders
IN THIS SUMMARY
Leaders have widely different approaches in how they deal with money and how they approach the building of value. These personal financial traits can be linked to a company’s performance and market value.
In The 3 Financial Styles of Very Successful Leaders, leadership expert and executive coach, Ted Prince, introduces the concept of the “financial signature,” a set of financial traits that characterize every leader’s decision making. Prince draws upon his research into the leadership styles of more than 130 CEOs to show how leaders’ financial signatures influence every aspect of a company’s financial and valuation performance. It is an influence, Prince believes, that is as important as all other key internal and external factors including product, market, strategy, and technology. Once a leader’s financial signature is understood, it can become a tool for sharpening core leadership skills that will drive a company to record profits and growth.
