In some organisations, managers and leaders fall into the trap of believing that financial management is something that the accounts team are fully responsible for.

The truth is that if you are an expert in your area of the business, you can excel in financial management. So what are my key tips?
Working as a team leader can be challenging. There are so many pieces that need to come together in order to create an efficient work environment.
