If you’re like most CIOs, chances are you spent some time as an IT manager or in a related position prior to assuming your current role. And while there are certainly some similarities between the two roles, to be an effective leader, it’s crucial that CIOs add some new skills to their arsenal.

考虑到这一点,让我们来看看七个基本特征,将IT领导者与IT经理分开。

鼓舞人心的

A good IT leader must inspire colleagues and staff alike and position new technologies as exciting opportunities to bring positive change. The key to this skill is acquiring and nurturing strong emotional intelligence and communication capabilities. Part of what makes these skills so important is that IT leaders should also expect to frequently engage in open, honest, and transparent conversations about technology strategies and vision.

Collaborative

正如我们所在以前讨论过at the APEX of Innovation, IT must be viewed as a strategic business partner to accelerate digital transformation efforts. As such, it should come as no surprise that establishing collaborative relationships across other areas of the organization is an increasingly important skill for IT leaders to cultivate.

启蒙

采取关键信息并将其转化为有说服力的叙述,以帮助团队成员成为他们最成功的自我,这是另一个技能,帮助IT领导者与经理分开。因为CIO与各级员工和利益相关者的联系,同样重要的是,他们调整他们的沟通方式以适应观众。

Visionary

IT经理通常具有“保持灯”的观点。相比之下,IT领导者必须具有更广泛的视角,包括为为内部和外部客户带来价值的新策略,方法和途径。

善意

Empathy is another soft skill that is becoming increasingly critical for effective IT leadership. Taking the time to listen to employees and demonstrating that you understand their motivations and context inspires them to do their best work. In addition, this mentality is contagious and encourages others in the C-suite to be more empathetic leaders.

Flexible

IT环境复杂,更快地变化。因此,它遵循它领导者必须灵活,并显示推理和问题的能力 - 通过各种情况来解决它们的方式。

Compassionate

关心员工以及企业的使命是有效CIO的另一个特征。这种富有同情心的态度鼓励职业生长和员工幸福,同时奠定了持续学习的框架,这对整个团队的成功至关重要。
