From the Server Room to the Board Room

More coverage from the Rocky Mountain Information Security Conference (RMISC) conference a couple weeks ago! Michael Wright, of Nelnet, delivered his presentation From the Server Room to the Board Room where he shared various career paths of doers to the C-Suite. He discussed how you can Lead Yourself, Lead Others and Lead the Business with the following 3 axioms:

1. You aren't a leader if you don't have followers.

2. You don't have to be a manager to be a leader.

3. Your followers don't need to report to you.

He also reminded us to exhibit Executive Level Decision Making:

- Your team is not always first

- Be Visible

- Speak the Language

And to establish relationships with Senior Leaders:

* Find common ground

* Be a mentor/mentee

* And show vulnerability without deference

Thank you to Michael Wright of Nelnet!
