2. Listen to them
CIOs should spend a considerable amount of time listening to their teams.
Offering support and having an open door policy can ensure team member’s voices are heard. What’s more, it can help CIOs establish a relationship, build trust and add crediabilty to their role.
British Car Auctions CIO Duncan Gray says: “I operate at the coalface…and I dislike being in my office. I prefer to be out motivating my team across all markets and all divisions.
“I like listening to people to learn what is really going on, whether they are the CEO, the developer or the support team. That might be on weekly, monthly or quarterly basis in all areas of the business, in any one of our countries. Engaging with the business and people is why I come to work. I believe IT is 50% platforms and 50% people.”
