The Context for IT Leadership Today

Dr Keri Pearlson presents to the IT Senior Management Forum on the role of the CIO and IT Leadership today. As technology becomes critical for building communities and managing business processes, IT leaders must not only respond quickly to organizational demands, but play a pivotal role in driving business strategy. The CIO is in the middle of a very complex set of relationships.

Celebrating Your Strengths

In this presentation to the IT Senior Management Forum, Dr Keri Pearlson explains how it’s often difficult for leaders to identify their core competencies. The ‘over-achiever mentality’ will always find areas of weakness that need improving. Keri explains how to avoid that trap and instead focus on identifying and maximizing your strengths.

“Dr. Pearlson delivered an engaging session on critical competencies for next generation IT Leaders to our IT Senior Management Forum. She ably covered a wide range of issues from technical and personal competency to business savvy and social skills. Her session was both informative and motivating; she created a unique learning experience for the IT leaders in the room.”
