"Trust is the foundation of real teamwork. And so the first dysfunction is a failure on the part of team members to understand and open up to one another. And if that sounds touchy-feely, let me explain, because there is nothing soft about it. It is an absolutely critical part of building a team. In fact, it’s probably the most critical." - Patrick Lencioni

Adjuvi – High Performance Organization » Blog Archive » The Role of the CIO in Digital and Social Business Transformation | Digital Leadership & C- Suite | Scoop.it

Research continues to show that one of the single most important activities that senior leaders can engage in — to drive real change and realize results with digital and social business — is to lead from the front. Of course, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to most business leaders. Yet we find it still needs to be emphasized, despite the growing shift away from hierarchies and towards communities to get work done in new and better ways. In fact, the value of executive leadership for digital/social has been confirmed again just recently by the Community Roundtable’s excellent 2014 report (slide 15).

Brian Fanzo's insight:

Today’s CIO is living in an age of unprecedented change, but that also means there’s tremendous opportunity as well Unfortunately, IT leaders are sometimes unwilling to be as revolutionary as required by the times.
