The Northeast Indiana Chief Information Officer Leadership Learning Forum

Fort Wayne Area CIO ForumWhat is the NE IN CIO Leadership Learning Forum?
Simply put the NE IN CIO Leadership Learning Forum is a facilitated peer group learning opportunity. Instead of a “sage on the stage” approach, each participant is expected to share what they have learned from the course material. This method provides a more inclusive view of the material which will enrich the learning.

The participants work as a small cohort over 9 months. All participants will be expected to read several books, articles, and research papers; they will listen to podcasts and watch videos. The program will feature interesting guest speakers. Each participant is expected to give and receive feedback from the group on their presentations.  The training will take place in various local venues specifically integrated into the program.  

What are the benefits of the NE IN CIO Leadership Learning Forum?
The NE IN CIO Leadership Learning Forum will cover common developmental themes such as: 

  • Self-assessment
  • Trend Watch
  • Time Management
  • Decision Making / Judgement
  • Communications
  • Change Management
  • Resource and Talent Management
  • Process Methodologies
  • Negotiations
  • Strategic Planning

Participants can expect a different approach to the material that is designed to aid in the growth of the IT professional. The key benefits will include, but are not limited to:

• Regular performance feedback from your peers
• Unique views of the course materials with special consideration for information technology
• Exposure to course material that the participant may not have self-selected, and
• Creation of a peer network

Participants will grow as a leader not just as a technologist. 

Who is the audience?
The intended audience is senior leaders and emerging information technology staff. It is widely reported that IT professionals are seen as lacking many soft skills and leadership traits. Information Technology leaders are often described as an order taker instead of a contributor or challenger. The IT professional often lacks strong vision, communication skills, and business acumen.
