Nepal Patel, Principal, North America at CIOsynergy commented, ‘Leadership and Management skills are very different but equally important; we see many effective paths to attaining key management skills but find effective leadership skills take a more fine-tuned approach. The role of the CIO requires an effective leadership model that will incubate a team of forward thinking innovators who can effectively leverage technology to support the goals of the business and its many facets. Who else better to guide these aspiring leaders then world renowned CEOs to the likes of Steve Forbes, Jimmy Wales, Howard Putnam, and Jeff Ma all of whom have shared their recipes for effective leadership to 100’s of CIOs and IT leaders through CIOsynergy.
