Executive Skills

It’s not enough to be the technology expert anymore. You also need to be the kind of leader your fellow C-suite executives and the board of directors turn to for input on business strategy. The most effective leaders know how to present a case persuasively and influence decisions. This track will help you improve your ability to talk about technology in language that inspires action and reinforces the business value of IT. We’ll explore ways to craft a more compelling story, understand political dynamics, deliver board presentations that hit home, and build your personal brand.

Bold Leadership

The IT organization no longer owns all of IT. Today’s CIOs must develop cross-departmental teams of highly skilled individuals. You must find ways to attract scarce talent, build digital dexterity across the organization and overcome cultural resistance. It’s a task that’s part leadership, part inspiration, part organization. This track will help you reshape organizational structures and attitudes for greater agility, strengthen your teams with diversity and inclusion and create a culture that is nourished and emboldened (not intimidated or overwhelmed) by change and innovation.
