Don’t let the CFO make operational decisions


Don’t let the CFO make operational decisions. In this episode Judith Germain speaks to Kurt Uhlir, a serial and parallel entrepreneur. They discuss his experience with disruptive technologies, including his involvement in a company that grew from $85 million to $1.44 billion in annual revenue in just 10 years. He emphasises the need to embrace uncertainty and find value in unconventional places, highlighting the shift from car navigation systems to tracking runs on smartwatches as an example of disruptive technology.

They also emphasise the need for a growth catalyst to help companies identify hidden beliefs and overcome obstacles in order to achieve significant growth.

In this conversation, Judith and Kurt discuss the importance of considering risk when making decisions about disruptive technology. They also highlight the need for expertise and unbiased opinions in decision-making processes to avoid unbound risks.

Kurt Uhlir is a 10x Marketer and Operational Leader.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It’s about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn’t just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It’s also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.
