Thank you in advance for the help! Since this job is particularly done by the Chief Information Officer therefore career opportunities for CIOs have dramatically increased all over the world.
This paper aims to discuss my aspirations for the next 3-5 years in which I want to develop as a Chief Information Officer. This job particularly deals with Information Technology and formulating organizational goals and objectives. Since CIO has a crucial role in developing strategies for company therefore he is also required to maintain higher level of emotional intelligence and significant leadership skills.
In order to be a successful Chief Information Officer I need to have good understanding of the modern technology while developing the habit of quickly analyzing information. This is important because one of the core job responsibilities of a CIO is to judge situations in the light of prior experience and knowledge. For instance, if I have experience of handling mass communication networks then it would be helpful for me to guide my subordinates whenever any problem arises. Emotions actually play a very significant role when it comes to supervision and leadership because both of these require operating in critical situations. If a person isn’t able to control his emotions then it is difficult for him to lead others. Currently, my performance strengths include emotional intelligence and ability to ponder over different issues. But on the other side I am highly vulnerable to make errors in judgment due to lack of experience in Information Technology. Today organizations are suggested to quickly, creatively and proactively adjust in the changing business environment (Ashkenas, 2002). Swiftly becoming accustomed to the modern corporate world will actually facilitate me in changing myself because only adapting to the new environment can transform me in to a good CIO.
