New Talent Mandata For CFOs: Advice from Tatum's Monica Foster

This article was authored by Monica Foster, National Managing Partner of Talent Management, Tatum Associates, a proud national sponsor of The CFO Leadership Council. Many CFOs agree that finding qualified talent to join their team is their biggest constraint on growth, so investing in human capital is more important now than ever.

A first wave of automation, to a large extent oriented toward physical work in highly structured and predictable environments, has already swept through and dramatically changed industries like manufacturing, hospitality, food service and retail. But plenty of traditional white-collar work was significantly reorganized by that first wave, too, particularly jobs involving relatively straightforward data collection and processing. Think of the

Tentativeness

  An excerpt from the book The Transition Game, written by CFOLC member Greg Olney. For more information on Olney, scroll down. Tentativeness When someone is tentative about a commitment, the tentative person hasn’t fully worked out their commitment. The tentative person is uncertain and hesitant about which way to proceed (Certainty is the 2nd “C” in Commitment to Change [5]). When a running back in football is tentative and doesn’t hit the hole with intensity, he, most likely, will fail. The defense will look for any slowness and drive that ball-carrier back away from his destination. This world smells
