Amplify Your Job SearchThe tables are turned once again and the host becomes the guest! Senior vice president of Marketing at InterVision, Alica Gaba, interviews me about my new book Amplify Your Job Search – Strategies for Finding Your Dream Job.  We cover a lot of ground in the conversation, including some specific strategies for IT professionals in this aftermath of COVID related layoffs.

We get personal, as I share my own story of transition and dig into the mental and emotional side of being in transition. I also share a few thoughts on what NOT to do in a job search!

IT Visionaries

Host Ian Faison and I have a great time philosophizing about the role of CIO…what it was and what it has become. In this episode of IT Visionaries, I share my own story of the moment that launched my career in IT, the purchase of a Commodore 64!

As the conversation unfolds, we cover three of the keys to success for the CIO of today: embed yourself in the business; diversify your talent; and, have a plan, but be open and flexible to change!

Moments to MomentumMoments to Momentum is the brand new podcast from Scott Abbott and Fabian Rodriquez. Part talk show, part podcast, Scott and Fabian have created a fun and entertaining format. The focus of the conversation is that moment in time that propelled you forward in your career.

Our conversation covered a LOT of ground, including Batman (old school Batman, as my grandson calls the 1960’s TV show with Adam West and Burt Ward), my crush on Jennifer Aniston, hip-hop music and my alter ego Papa Real, and, of course, my moment…the moment that changed my life and changed my career. Hey, you have to listen to the show to know the moment!

Status Go "What's Next? | Leadership & Career CoachingStatus Go – Episode 93

One of the most valuable things I did in my career was to hire an executive coach. Careers are complicated. Many times we are caught up in the currents and could use some guidance for finding the way forward. If you have read my book Amplify Your Job Search, you know I recommend hiring a coach multiple times. It is a career amplifier (see how I did that?)! 

Enter Brad Finkeldei, president of Career Confidence. Brad is a recovering IT professional turned career coach. Not surprising, his focus is on the IT pro. In our conversation, we discuss the importance of clarity, something important to any professional regardless of their industry. As we dig deeper, he talks about the most common roadblocks to career success: fear and false narratives. If you are stagnated in your career, you will want to listen to this episode!

Status Go "What's Next? ! Reimagining Work" Now what? What’s next? Where do we go from here? If you have not asked those questions yourself this year, you’ve been asked those questions…dozens of times. As a technology leader, do you have answers? Have you taken the time to reimagine your world of work? Work was changing long before the events of this year, they merely accelerated. Today’s guest has been reimagining work for over ten years as the CEO of Formstack. Chris Byers and Formstack have changed the way work gets done.

Chris and I tackle some of the tough questions imposed upon leaders by the shelter-in-place, remote work necessities brought about by the COVID pandemic. Through the Formstack story, Chris talks about the challenges, lessons learned, and solutions they worked through over the last eight years. We discuss the differences between in-office collaboration and virtual collaboration, communication issues, and launching new initiatives. 

If you are in the process of reimagining work in our new reality you won’t want to miss this episode.

Status GoStatus Go – Episode 89

Otto Sanchez is back on Status Go. When Otto and I met to discuss this episode, we got on the topic of Kari’s Law and the life and death risks some companies may be taking with their phone systems. We thought that was so important, we created an entire episode out of it. If you have not listened to it, you should! Listen to it here: Kari’s Law

In this episode, we dig into the customer experience and the importance of collaboration and collaboration tools is to CX. We discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of customer experience and the impact that has on customer retention and customer spend. Far from a technology conversation, we do talk about the collaboration stack and the role each layer plays in fostering communication, internally and externally.
