Career Boost Coaching

Every career has peaks and plateaux. Corporate technology progresses in cycles fuelled by technical breakthroughs and new ways of working that emerge first in the most agile and tech dependent environments. In contrast, most corporate careers are playing catch-up through successive cycles of business change and transformation.

As a result corporate technology leaders (CIOs/CDOs and their top teams) tend to move roles far more frequently than their peers on the Exco. This is good news for a technology headhunter, of course. They are constantly meeting technology leaders who are strategic visionaries who can influence boards, deliver digital business enablement to connect to customers in new ways and even create new business revenue streams. Why then is it so hard for most CIOs to drive change or even to be heard in the change debate?
