"The CFO Survival Guide is a bold, insightful account of the subtle yet powerful interdependencies connecting human values, beliefs, and behaviors to the work performed by people and the wealth this work creates. The Guide's Declaration of Interdependence will challenge aspiring CFOs and corporate leaders to reexamine their understanding of how wealth is created, sustained, and managed in the twenty-first century, and what effect their roles have on wealth-creation and the evolution of the living organizations they lead."

"Not your usual CFO portrayal. The Stenzels create a compelling argument for why and how putting CFOs in touch with people is central to organizational success."
