Break Through the Tech Ceiling with CIO Bench Coach!

There has never been a greater opportunity for IT organizations to truly add business value. The new Digital age has created the opportunity for companies of all sizes to compete on an equal technology playing field. Capabilities such as Cloud Computing, Mobile Apps, Social Media, Big Data, and Software as a Service are allowing companies to directly engage with the consumers of their products and services in a deeper and more meaningful way than ever before. In this new totally connected world technology is the very fabric of how we conduct every aspect of our businesses.

The need for companies to have an effective technology capability is more critical than ever before. However many IT Executives and their organizations are struggling with the new set of expectations that come along with this digital transformation. This new digital age requires IT executives to consistently and effectively exhibit a whole new set of competencies which aren’t taught in business school and don’t always come naturally. These competencies include:

  • Leveraging information and technology to drive bottom line results
  • Leading major change initiatives
  • Attracting, Retaining and Developing key leaders
  • Turning talented individuals into high performing teams
  • Changing the culture and brand of the technology organization
  • Leveraging cultural and generational diversity as a strategic asset
  • Building effective Board and C-Level relationships
  • Effectively communicating and marketing the value of the IT investment
  • Building strategic partnership with key vendors

While these are critical capabilities required for success, many times these important areas of focus wind up on the “back burner” while IT Executives deal with the complex issues and ongoing responsibilities of managing a technology organization.

How valuable would it be for you to have a trusted partner who can help you address these key issues? How much more valuable would it be if that person had over 35 years of experience leading and managing complex technology organizations himself? I’ve held executive leadership positions over the past 35 years in the Financial, Pharmaceutical, Not for Profit, Consulting, and Sports and Entertainment industries and have received numerous industry accolades including being nominated for the CIO Hall of Fame, being named as one of CIO Magazine’s CIO 100 and one of Computerworld’s Premier 100 IT Leaders. I’ve served as a strategic partner, mentor, and executive coach to more than 100 IT leaders at some of the most successful companies in the world.
