Seminar 01F - CIO 101: Successfully Navigating Your First Year as a CIO
PLEASE NOTE: Separate registration and fee is required to attend this seminar.
Tuesday, October 28 | 9:30AM–5:30PM | Room W340D
Moving to your first CIO position presents both exciting opportunities and serious risks. This session will address the crucial first year of a successful transition, the time when the senior manager's leadership style is asserted, new relationships are formed, and reputation is established. This session will address a set of key questions facing the new senior leader. What should my first actions be? How should I begin to build productive relationships with my new colleagues? How can I balance the expectations placed on me and my own sense of timing? How will I communicate my plans and vision? We will address the different challenges facing those moving up within their own institution and those moving to a leadership role in a new institution. This session is of particular interest to new or aspiring CIOs and CTOs, as well as department heads, directors, and librarians moving to leadership positions.
