Growing the Next Generation of Leaders
Gould, Rebecca; Unger, Elizabeth; Bacon, Annie
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v31 n3 p58-61 2008
Most CIOs and IT leaders agree that the community must work deliberately to develop talent among the IT staff, not wait for it to appear. However, responsibility for professional development also lies with the individual. There is no one right way for would-be leaders to hone their skills, but rather a multitude of strategies that will support a transition to leadership roles. This article offers suggestions for aspiring IT leaders to develop their skills and help their colleagues grow. These include formulating a personal vision for the future of IT, mastering the concepts of technology transfer and developing powerful communication skills. (Contains 6 resources and 6 endnotes.)
