Five Characteristics of Successful IT Leaders

Dateline: August 28, 2015

Welcome to our Friday WRAP – one thought-provoking idea to think about over the weekend.

Let’s be right up front about this…most people quit because they can’t tolerate their boss any longer.  It’s not usually the task or the pay (although a job with more pay may accelerate the importance of issues one has with their boss).  Recently, Peter Diamond, coach, author and contributor to Entrepreneur magazine, posted a blog titled, Don’t be the Reason People Leave Your Company. In it he writes,

Why do people gravitate to certain managers or leaders? What do they possess that others don’t? Intellect. Drive. Esprit de corps. Humility. Humanity. These are personified in the five laws of attraction for leaders. They are surprisingly simple and baseline essentials for all managers and leaders.

The Five Laws are:

  • Having a Vision for Success
  • Being Decisive
  • Building a Cohesive and High Functioning Team
  • Being Self Aware
  • Listening

Are you the reason someone might potentially leave your IT team?

That’s a WRAP!  Have a great weekend!
