Going Beyond.

how we're different

At Vision Beyond Advisory we believe every leader and business owner deserves facts they can do something with - instead of fumbling their way in the dark with spreadsheets and figures they don't understand or piles of reports that mean nothing to them.


Our superpower is taking numbers and translating them into an easy-to-understand visual format that you can use to build financial strategy AND create an implementation plan so future growth becomes a reality.


We'll then work with you to help you build a more agile and efficient business by managing your:


> accounts payable and receivable

> billing

> general ledger

> payroll, and

> month-end reporting


Together we'll shed light on what's been holding you back financially; from unpaid taxes to poor employment choices, so you can move forward. No judgement and no finger pointing.


When you work with us you don't need to spend hours considering all your options or consulting with dozens of other professionals, all you have to do is take the next step.

  • Strategic planning and mentoring sessions

  • Cash flow forecasting

  • Scenario modelling

  • Process mapping

  • Break-even analysis

OUTSOURCED FINANCE

Concentrate on running your business and leave the day-to-day management of your finances to us. Just like having your own in-house accounts department our team will manage all your financial obligations, without the overheads.

Here's what we'll help you with:

How to Get Your Team on the Same Financial Page 

April 14, 20243 min read

Achieving success requires more than just a visionary leader or innovative products. It demands a cohesive team working towards a common goal, and perhaps nowhere is this more critical than when it comes to your finances. Yet, getting your team on the same financial page can often feel like herding cats – challenging, but not impossible.

Here are some practical strategies that business owners can implement to work towards financial alignment among their teams. From setting clear expectations to promoting financial literacy, these actionable steps will help you create a culture of financial harmony within your organisation. 

 

Step 1. Communicate Clear Financial Goals: 

The first step in getting your team on the same financial page is to communicate clear and measurable financial goals. Whether it's increasing revenue, reducing expenses, or improving cash flow, everyone on your team should understand what you're working towards and why it matters. 

Actionable Step: Hold a team meeting to discuss your company's financial goals for the quarter or year. Encourage input from team members and brainstorm strategies for achieving these goals together. 

 

Step 2. Provide Financial Training and Education: 

Financial literacy is key to ensuring that your team understands the importance of sound financial management and how their individual roles contribute to the company's bottom line. Investing in financial training and education for your employees can pay dividends in the long run. 

Actionable Step: Offer workshops or online courses on topics such as budgeting, cash flow management, and financial analysis. Encourage team members to participate and apply their newfound knowledge to their day-to-day responsibilities. 

 

Step 3. Foster Open Communication: 

Effective communication is essential for fostering financial alignment within your team. Encourage open dialogue about financial matters and create a safe space where team members feel comfortable asking questions and sharing ideas. 

Actionable Step: Schedule regular check-ins or team meetings to discuss financial performance, upcoming projects, and any challenges or concerns. Encourage team members to share their insights and provide feedback on how financial goals can be achieved more effectively. 

 

Step 4. Set Clear Expectations: 

Clearly define each team member's role and responsibilities concerning financial matters. Whether it's budgeting, expense tracking, or financial reporting, everyone should understand their role in supporting the company's financial objectives. 

Actionable Step: Create job descriptions or task lists that outline each team member's financial responsibilities. Review these expectations regularly and provide support and guidance as needed to ensure everyone is on the same page. 

 

Step 5. Use Financial Tools and Technology: 

Take advantage of financial tools and technology to streamline processes and improve collaboration among team members. From accounting software to project management platforms, there are countless resources available to help you manage your finances more effectively. 

Actionable Step: Invest in accounting software that allows for real-time collaboration and reporting. Encourage team members to familiarise themselves with these tools and use them to track expenses, monitor cash flow, and generate financial reports. 

 

Step 6. Celebrate Financial Wins: 

Recognise and celebrate financial wins, both big and small, to motivate and inspire your team. Whether it's hitting a revenue target, reducing expenses, or securing a new client, acknowledging these achievements reinforces the importance of financial alignment and encourages continued success. 

Actionable Step: Implement a rewards program or recognition system to acknowledge team members who contribute to financial success. This could include bonuses, shout-outs in team meetings, or other forms of recognition that align with your company culture. 

 

Getting your team on the same financial page is essential for driving long-term success and sustainability in your business. By communicating clear financial goals, providing training and education, fostering open communication, setting clear expectations, leveraging financial tools and technology, and celebrating financial wins, you can create a culture of financial alignment that empowers your team to achieve greatness together.
