A Transformational Leadership and Staff Development Program

Wednesday, May 29 | 4:45PM–5:30PM | Grand Ballroom B
Session Type: Professional Development

Clemson Computing and Information Technology (CCIT) has a leadership story that may surprise you. This presentation will outline the CCIT Leadership Summit that emerged in a collaborative, self-organized, and innovative way. CIO Jim Bottum wanted to extend a developmental opportunity to all his employees. His goal was to break down silos, align strengths with opportunities, and empower individuals to lead. CCIT champions collaborated with Clemson's Center for Corporate Learning to make the program a reality. Learning outcomes are focused on increased self-awareness, emotional intelligence, creativity, and coaching. The course design is a model other universities may find inspirational and useful.
