What are the characteristics of a bold transformational leader?

“The whole notion of a bold transformational leader is an interesting one. I think there are different dynamics to it. A leader can only be bold if they operate from a strong foundation. Building that strong foundation takes a lot of hard work, things you wouldn't typically consider bold. A bold leader is not afraid to do what’s right, they synthesize information from lots of people instead of simply assuming that they know everything. Synthesizing information helps unravel those key things which we have to keep up with in terms of what's going on in the world.”

What are the biggest challenges a CIO faces today?

“A CIO faces a multitude of challenges when operating in a large global organization. Diversity of approach is so important - we have businesses in New York, but also in Pakistan and Mongolia. The needs of each of these locations are very distinct and must be paid attention to.

“Further, a bold leader surrounds themselves with individuals who are able to execute and bring new ideas to the table. This way, they are never the only bold person in the room.”
