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 - The Shifting Healthcare ModelStatus Go – Episode 87

Being a CIO in healthcare, in Seattle, meant being at the epicenter of the first breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic. For Curt Kwak, CIO of Proliance Surgeons, this meant ensuring his team provided the best support possible in the face of uncertainly in the community around them. He and his team quickly moved to a hybrid model of work-from-home, in-office support, and accelerating into telemedicine. 

Curt takes us through his team’s journey, the challenges they faced, the successes they had, and yes, somethings he would do differently. Throughout 2020 Curt and his team have maintained positive attitudes, knowing they are serving their community through their individual talents.

Status Go - Kari's LawStatus Go – Episode 86

It is not often CIOs are faced with life or death decisions. However, decisions about something as benign as your phone system can have life-threatening impacts. In 2013, Kari Hunt was being attacked by her estranged husband. Her daughter tried to call 911 four times, not knowing she had to dial 9 to get an outside line at the hotel where they were staying. This led to federal legislation known as Kari’s Law requiring phone systems to be configured to eliminate the need to dial 9 before dialing 911. 

Whether you are a CIO, CEO, COO, or an employee, does the phone system you use at the office require dialing 9? Do you know for sure? You may be in violation of federal law and it may cost someone their life. 

Listen to this episode of Status Go with Otto Sanchez, director of professional services – collaboration at InterVision to learn the details of this requirement and Ray Baum’s Act which requires detailed location information to be embedded in your caller id record. Otto provides insights into this problem, what can be done to alleviate it, and what actions you should take today!
