WorkMinusHost Neil Miller and I go deep on why IT departments can no longer be known as the department of “No”.  Technology is now at the center of most businesses. In face, very few industries can survive without technology. IT leaders must be seeking ways to drive the business forward, create new revenue streams, interact with the customer…and the customer’s customer. IT is core to the future of work! Listen to the episode here!

WorkMinus is an organization founded on the future of work. The focus on six key workplace concepts for the future: Leadership, Productivity, Diversity & Inclusion, Workspaces, Technology and Culture.

Humans Now and ThenHost Rebecca Scott and I get real about the changing face of IT. What skills does the IT leader of today and tomorrow need to be successful and drive their businesses forward? The answer may surprise you…it has little to do with technology. Our businesses are demanding more of us in this digital age. While our focus was on the future, we also look to the past and talk about the importance of journal writing and a couple of guys named Lewis & Clark. List to our conversation here!

Humans, Now and Then explores how our rapidly changing world impacts our human experience, now and in the future. If you like the show, please share with others to help get them involved in the conversation about the future.

#AmplifyYourLeadershipStatus Go – Episode 64

Nurse to health care informatics to life coach and enneagram guide, our guest in this episode, Rachel Pritz, has taken an unusual path. The meat of this episode is about the enneagram, what it is, what it does, and what it means for your leadership, however we do spend time on her career journey. I think it is an important part of understanding the insights Rachel shares. 

After taking us on this journey, Rachel digs into the enneagram using her own growth as an example. One of the insights she shares, that may be a surprise to many, is IT professionals are hungry for personal growth, sharing their stories and developing as leaders. In short, building their soft skills. 

Discover the “why” behind your behaviors. Her call to action is a challenge we all should take!

Status Go – Episode 62

Ask any CIO what keeps them up at night and they are likely to respond with security. Even if it is not the first answer, it will undoubtedly be in the top three or four of their priorities. In fact, once the dramatic rush to a remote, work from home, workforce was over, attention turned to, you guessed it, security. Today, In this episode I sat down with one of the top thought leaders in the cyber security space, J.R. Tietsort, chief information security officer for DarkTrace, a company pioneering the use of AI in cyber security.

JR’s approach to cyber security is very pragmatic: it is a balancing act between security and revenue; between security and productivity. He covers his perspective of the cyber security stack and the role that AI can play in each layer of the stack. He also provides insights into the application of AI and the maturity progression many companies follow in their implementations of the technology.

Future of WorkOur world changed dramatically. Our work changed dramatically. 2020 and COVID-19 will be remembered by history as the year that everything changed…again. Remote work has been thrust upon us, ready or not, like it or not. The future of work is now! Our guest in this episode, best selling author, Charlie Araujo has been writing and more importantly thinking about the future of technology and the future of work for years. When we spoke to Charlie on this program last year, we discussed Humanness in this Digital Era. His blog post a couple weeks ago really jumped out at me. The post was titled “Why your WFH choices you make now will determine your digital era future”. The post was powerful, like all of Charlie’s writing. 

Charlie and I cover several aspects of this new WFH (work from home) world and what it means for the technology professional today and tomorrow. Charlie challenges us all to do a better job of connecting the dots of the physical and digital worlds.

Status Go – Episode 57

In a recent newsletter, I highlighted a couple of LinkedIn posts from Dave Linn the Gratitude Dude. I was delighted to have Dave as a guest on Status Go. Our world has changed in the blink of an eye. It is easy to get lost in the panic and uncertainty. Dave’s posts encouraged all of us to show each other grace and compassion and to look for ways to help others (after ensuring we, ourselves, are safe). 

Our conversation was inspirational. Dave is involved in many different endeavors…all of them in the vein of giving back. His challenge to all of us is to show a little gratitude every day, especially in these uncertain times. I would love to hear your thoughts after listening to this episode.

Status Go – Episode 56

As 2020 dawned, Jared Nichols of The New Futurist and I sat down to discuss the future. The conversation was so insightful, we decided to sit down again and dive deeper. We also wanted to do a progress check as we reach the end of the first quarter – to challenge you to think about how you viewed the first quarter three months ago and how you view things today.  A lot has changed in those three months. 

You may recall from the first episode that we also talked about scenario development as a part of strategic foresight. In this conversation, Jared explains his three step process for spotting early signs of change. These episodes are guaranteed to change the way you think about the future!

As I mention in my intro to this episode, Pete Williams – CIO of Butler University – is a CIO who has “done it”. He has taken his department on a journey. They have become a profit generator, able to create revenue that feeds back into the IT department.
