“Today’s trailblazing leaders recognize that in order to credibly transform their organizations, they must credibly transform themselves and their teams.”
That’s the conclusion of The 2020 Future of Leadership Global Executive Study and Research Report, published by MIT Sloan Management Review and Cognizant, which uncovered some stark gaps that “serve as a warning” to today’s leaders:

A recent Deloitte study finds that CEOs are looking for CIOs to step up as strategic business partners and shepherd the organization through accelerating cycles of transformation and disruption. In fact, 40% of CEOs in that survey named their tech leader as their top partner in business strategy — more than the CFO, CDO, COO, or CMO combined.
The harsh reality is that technology executives who continue to ignore the need to transform themselves and their teams eventually become organizational casualties.
O&A’s Dan Roberts recently spoke with one tech leader who’s ahead of the curve in this area, Danielle Brown, Vice President and CIO at Brunswick Corporation. In his latest CIO Whisperers column, Dani shares her insights and advice as a strategic champion of change.
“It’s so important for IT leaders to recognize that this is their role,” she stresses. “You have to have a seat at that table and, more importantly, a voice at that table, because your voice is based on a vantage point that others don’t have.”
As Dan mentions in the column, to start down the path of becoming an effective leader of change, you have to understand the components, or 4 Cs, of change: commitment, community, and clarity, along with the glue that binds them all together, communication.
Though IT leaders understand what it takes to manage people, leading an organization through significant change requires a different set of skills.
Our Leading Change Across the Enterprise workshop will enable you to build change leaders and champions throughout your entire IT organization, equipping your team with the skills, tools, clarity, and framework to lead successful change initiatives.
Get in touch for a one-on-one walkthrough of the workshop and to discuss your specific IT leadership development needs.
