Leadership as Craft

The craft of leadership requires a broad range of abilities, particularly at the executive level. Executives must be both strategic and tactical — able to see the big picture and attend to details where appropriate. They must be assertive but humble — able to deliver bold ideas but hold them lightly. And they must be strategic and relational — able to make tough decisions while attending to the human side of the people they lead. There is perhaps no role where these requirements are more evident than that of the chief technology officer. While CTOs have existed at some companies since the 1980s, the scope and scale of the role have grown alongside technology’s importance. Charged with leading organizations’ long-term technology strategies, CTOs are critical players in keeping both legacy and digital-native companies ready for the road ahead.
