“Becoming an effective leader in tech requires reaching across widely separated capabilities, concepts, skills and expertise. A good leader unites the coders at the micro level with the visionaries at the macro level, meaning that, to paraphrase a common adage, a CTO is a, ‘jack of all trades, master of most.’

You simply can’t ‘fake it till you make it’ and be a great leader in the technology industry.

Additionally, leaders today have the challenges of unifying teams across regions, time zones and skill levels to get the job done. The ability to communicate precisely and respond quickly is critical to building successful teams, as is having the vision to run teams efficiently around the world.

Lastly, it’s really important for leaders to actively be mentors of junior people in the organization. Formal mentoring relationships can offer wisdom and experience for the junior employee, and insight and education for the leader.

There’s value in both directions, for mentee and mentor, as well as for the organization. Mentoring is something all leaders should be offering to their team members.”
