A NURTURER'S CODE TO LIVE BY FOR DEVELOPING IT LEADERS

Keynote Speaker: Brian Voss

With their hit song "Teach Your Children," Crosby, Stills and Nash, have a few pointers for today's IT leaders. We have all, at some point been fed on the dreams of others and benefited from the guidance by someone who helped us learn the ropes. The way in which benefits are imparted covers a vast and sometimes contradictory range of styles and techniques. Life consistently shows there is no single effective style of successful leadership - and thus there is no single successful style for mentoring or influencing the behaviors for becoming a leader. The two key ingredients in mentoring is the mentor and the recipient of the mentoring. Each pairing is as different as fingerprints and hence there is no single approach to rely upon to produce the desired results in all situations. With this understanding, we can examine an approach for developing leaders and hearing from one who was on the road with a nurturer's code to live by.
