10 ways to be an authentic IT leader

Rich Hein | July 16, 2013
Getting all your people onboard and moving in the same direction is paramount to success in the fast-paced environment of IT.

9. Share Your Successes
No man is an island unto himself. You need to find ways to compliment your peers and your teams for a job well done. "If your group collaborated with another team to bring about a full-scale enterprise transformation, broadcast the collaboration. Highlight the value of teams working together for the greater good. Look for ways to shower praise on those who deserve it, and to encourage those that are struggling but still contributing," says Rucker.

10. The Road Less Traveled
In our world full of superficial exchanges, we as part of our nature are drawn to authentic people. Being an authentic leader is a tough road, however. "It's all about having the courage to do the right thing for the customers, employees and shareholders", says Ajay Waghray, CIO and senior vice president for Verizon Enterprise Solutions.

Results are normally the bottom-line in today's IT, but how you get there can be just as important to your long-term success.
