Wednesday, October 01 | 10:10am - 11:00am ET | Meeting Room W304B-D
Session Type: Professional Development

How does an IT professional learn to be a successful director, CIO, or leader in our educational environments? There are tremendous resources in our community that foster and enable success. Leadership development is an interactive process: the more you give, the more you receive in return. Leadership depends on inspiration, and the encouragement of career growth in those around us is both inspiring to others and to leaders. Join Joanne Kossuth and Theresa Rowe as they share their perspectives on leadership development and the role of our community in developing tomorrow's IT leaders.

OUTCOMES: Gain multiple perspectives and practical examples of successful models of leadership * Further understand why it takes a community to develop successful leaders in both IT and higher education * Develop a personal context for leadership development today and tomorrow
