Enjoy! And thanks to Jim Willson from MSU for partnering with us on this write up.
I attended the MOR IT Leaders conference in late May. As an ITLP graduate who stepped into a CIO role two years ago, I was asked to share how I employ the elements of the MOR toolkit in my leadership role. I’ve invested in relationships and focused on changing culture. I’ve taken uncomfortable risks. But, reflecting on my talk, I recognized that I took the safe route in sharing those experiences. I didn’t share the boldest initiatives. I didn’t lean in.
This week’s Tuesday Reading comes via Jim Hall’s blog <http://blog.lib.umn.edu/jhall/blog/>. Jim is an ITLP alumnus and is currently campus IT Director at the University of Minnesota Morris.
The Chronicle of Higher Education ran an article a few weeks ago, How to Run a Meeting
Today's Tuesday Reading is "Making Decisions Outside Your Repertoire" by Ronald Heifetz (you remember him from the first session of the Leadership Program), Marty Linsky, and Alexander Grashow.
Somehow, Tuesday came and I was completely oblivious to my commitment to send out something for everyone to reflect on. Don't know where my thoughts were that morning! In spite of my forgetfulness, we do have a very good piece for this week from ITLP IX’s Vision Team – Tom Lewis (University of Washington), Todd Rheinfrank (Carnegie Mellon University), Randy Standridge (University of Texas), Beth-Anne Sullivan (Northeastern University), Terry Tatum (University of Texas), and Elease Welch (New York University).
Today’s Tuesday Reading, “Keeping Pace with Technology” comes from ITLP IX’s Vision Team – Beth-Anne Sullivan (Northeastern University), Terry Tatum (University of Texas), Elease Welch (New York University), Randy Standridge (University of Texas), Todd Rheinfrank (Carnegie Mellon University), and Tom Lewis (University of Washington). Their graduation was last summer and since then they have continued to write, challenging their colleagues in the next stages of their leadership journey.
