Adapting to change offers one an edge in career advancement
According to a new survey by staffing firm Accountemps, 31 per cent of Canadian CFOs polled said the ability to adapt easily to change is the most necessary characteristic for getting ahead, followed by having a motivation to learn (29 per cent) and strong interpersonal skills (23 per cent).
