    CIOSkillBuilder – IT Leader Coaching

    The CIO and CTO roles are evolving. Many organizations do not have an executive who understands how technology can transform their business and industry.

    If they have a CIO who does, they often lack a succession plan for their CIO.  VIE can help develop these skills with current technology leaders and potential successors.

    VIE will help:

    • Develop internal skills to execute and support your digital transformation
    • Turn technical leaders into business leaders
    • Create savvy, value generating technology executives at your company

    If you are a technology leader, consider these questions:

    • Are you a CIO or CTO in search of personal growth to become a more effective leader?
    • Are you a Director or Manager who aspires to a C-Suite role in a mid-size or large business?
    • Do you want to become more effective in communicating with diverse audiences?
    • Would you like to develop an intuitive feel for aligning business and technology?
    • Do you want to be more confident having a strategic business conversation with the C-suite?
    • Do you want to know what steps to take to grow and develop in your job or career?
    • Would you like to become a trusted business partner and guide in your organization?

    If you answer yes to any of these, then read on.
