IT leadership is not a one-person show. It takes committed staffers to be able to run an impactful IT department. To secure this commitment from staff, IT leaders must earn credibility during their early days on the job.
Info-Tech Research Group interviewed IT leaders, ranging from IT managers to CIOs, on their experiences transitioning into new leadership positions. In these interviews, Info-Tech asked what worked and what didn’t as they tried to earn the confidence and respect of their teams.
Topics covered in this note include:
- Earning respect on a technical level.
- Fostering passion and creativity within the team.
- Breeding the loyalty of your team.
Earning the respect of your team is not easy, but once you do, you will be able to influence it in a strategic direction.
