Are you a stereotypical IT Leader?

Although the typical aspects of the stereotypical IT leader are extremely valuable, they are often regarded as incompatible, not only with the board, but also with modern business strategy, which now tends to emerge through a process of ongoing dialogue in response to ill-defined, dynamic and often unpredictable market conditions.

Master soft skills

In order to break into the board’s confidence and help to lead their organisation, CIOs must now become masters of the soft skills, and deal with imperfectly seizing the unknown, rather than working to perfect the known.

Strike a balance – bring innovation and success

Incorporating the latest business thinking, this book explains how the IT leader can strike this balance, evolve into the CTO – Chief Transformation Officer – and really contribute to the development and success of business enterprises.

Read this book and learn how to:

  • Successfully balance transactional and transformational Leadership
    By becoming flexible in your approach to leadership, you will be able to simultaneously deliver business as usual, whilst enabling change and innovation.
  • Understand the IT leader stereotype and how to alter its perception
    People have developed through evolution to automatically stereotype, and, as part of the IT professional crowd, there is a certain stigma attached to your perception which can often make you seen to be an outsider. This book will show you not only how to understand others’ perceptions, but also how to work with them to become a trusted and leading member of your organisation.
  • Utilise tools like action learning and co-creation
    In a leading role, you will have to deal with a multiplicity of situations and varying reactions from the individuals of your team. To help understand them and align their ability to assess, the book will show you how to use key tools such as action learning and co-creation to inspire innovation and increase your future prospects.

By employing key steps and reflective points, this book provides useful tools and sound advice to help you get to grips with balancing soft skills with hard techniques, letting you break out of the IT stereotype and bring innovation into the inner sanctum of your organisation.
