The Largest Gathering of Midmarket CIOs and Senior IT Executives

The 360-Degree IT Leader

A great IT leader can motivate their team to achieve the highest levels of performance, but the best know how to lead by exerting their influence throughout the organization. This means mastering the art of leading themselves, superiors, business executives, peers, team members and tech-focused employees. Only then can an IT leader truly break down the boundaries that prevent organizations from outperforming the competition. They must be ubiquitous ─ connected deep inside the business to help others discover how to reach their potential. This IT leader also must take ownership of the technologies senior executives need to succeed, including AI, Security, Analytics, Cloud and Blockchain, among others. The true 360-degree IT leader comes to understand their influence is greater than they know, allowing them to make a lasting impact on everyone they encounter.
