This book addresses leadership issues in the IT industry to help IT practitioners lead from the lowest level. Unlike other leadership books that provide a one-size-fits-all approach to leadership, this book focuses on the unique challenges that IT practitioners face.
IT project managers may manage processes and technologies, but people must be led. The IT industry attracts people who think in logical ways - analytical types who have a propensity to place more emphasis on tasks and technology than on people. This has led to leadership challenges such as poor communication, poor relationship management, and poor stakeholder engagement. Critical IT projects and programs have failed because IT leaders neglect the people component of "people, process, and technology."
Communications skills are key to leadership. This book features an in-depth discussion of the communications cycle and emotional intelligence, providing geek leaders with tools to improve their understanding of others and to help others understand them. To transform a geek into a geek leader, this book also discusses:
- Self-leadership skills so geek leaders know how to lead others by leading themselves first
- Followership and how to cultivate it among team members
- How a geek leader's ability to navigate disparate social styles leads to greater credibility and influence
- Integrating leadership into project management processes
The book concludes with a case study to show how to put leadership principles and practices into action and how an IT geek can transform into an effective IT geek leader.
