CIO Leadership Role Workshop – Go beyond the stated!

No Comments

Digital is the new foundation of business. And the CIO must lead.

CIO has a big opportunity to lead the business in the digital age. But for doing that, the CIO may need to embark upon a journey of self development. Being bogged down with day to day technology issues is not going to allow her to grab the career defining opportunity.

A good start is always half the battle won.

Start your success journey with our half-day CIO Leadership Role Workshop, which can catalyze your career upwards. The workshop shall provide valuable tailor made inputs for your personal development and career growth towards leading the business with digital.

Role Workshop is based upon the CIO Roles and Competencies Inventory (CIO LRCI) Framework and Instrument. The workshop is designed to kick start the process of self development, where you take the responsibility of personal growth in your own hands.

At the end of the workshop, you shall obtain insights about your current style of functioning, focus and priorities, value orientation, social manifestations, and competencies to focus upon.

The instrument has emanated directly from the doctoral work by Dr. Kapil Dev Singh at MDI, Gurgaon, who shall personally take the workshop. It shall be co-facilitated by Mr. Koushik Chatterjee, a certified leadership development coach of high repute.

The workshop shall be created in a very comforting and positive environment for enhanced learning.

About CIO LRCI Framework

CIO LRCI Framework delineates 4 Role Domains, 8 Roles, 24 Role Activities and 24 Competencies specific to a CIO’s role. The Framework shall help you map your current role onto it and identify the competencies that you need. The self assessment is done in reference to the organizational context in which you are operating.

CIO LRCI is based upon a role matrix with four role quadrants- CIO as People Manager, CIO as Operations Manager, CIO as Business Manager and CIO as a Change Leader. More often than not, the CIO focuses on one or two of these competing role domains, thus compromising on the other role domains. And mostly it is the people and operations management which get more focus at the cost of business and change leadership.  With time they get into the groove of comfort and loses the alignment with the fast changing business context. An awareness of this phenomenon is a starting point of any meaningful and relevant development.

It shall help you become aware of the areas of development of specific competencies, which is akin to embarking upon a journey of self development and ensuring success. This self assessment can be very valuable in guiding your energies towards the right learning initiatives and developing yourself as a future business leader.
