About this course

This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to be a leader people want to follow. In this course, I’m sharing the best of the lessons I learned during my corporate career building teams and leading big projects as I worked my way up to the C-Suite. I’ll share my custom “HERO” method, to help you remember the key steps to be a great leader. You’ll learn how to build winning teams, how to have difficult conversations, and how to lead successful projects. I also have a whole chapter on Diversity – because you can’t build a great team without it! There will be learnings for you whether you’re a new manager for the first time, or an executive trying to cope with leading teams through the massive changes at work we’ve all experienced this last year. If you are an Executive or HR leader looking for practical Leadership resources for your company, you can use this course as a teaching tool.

Katya Forsyth / INSTRUCTOR
Experienced CFO / Corporate Coach / Keynote Speaker

I am an experienced CFO who has transformed the office of Finance across multiple companies and industries. I began my career as an auditor and transitioned into Industry where I found the systems at each business I worked in lacking. I learned how to build Finance teams, the right processes, and then implement the systems to match. I have built high-performing teams and financial models for every size and type of business, and successfully designed and implemented systems including SAP, Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Prophix. My specialty is I speak "business" not accounting, and can explain complex topics in a simple, interesting way. After doing the work for 25 years, I am now sharing my tools and best practices so that the next generation of Finance leaders have the resources they need at hand. I only teach what I have successfully done! In addition to Finance, I am passionate about building better businesses, with Diverse leadership, people-first practices to create healthy cultures that support ALL people equally. After years of putting work ahead of my health, I'm an avid Fitness enthusiast and work to inspire people to invest in their own health.
