Can you please provide a little introduction about yourself
What has your journey to your position been like? What path have you taken?
Has it always been your vision to reach the position you’re at? Was your current role part of your vision to become a tech leader?
Have you had a role model or mentor that has helped you on your journey?
How do you see the role of the technology leader evolving over the next 5 years?
What skills do you think leaders of the future will need in order to thrive?
How do you keep current with new skills, technologies and personal development?
What do you see as the next leap in technology that will impact your business or industry in particular?
If you were mentoring a leader of the future, what advice or guidance would you give to help them on their way?
Is there anything in particular that you would still like to achieve in your career or what is the next step on your journey?
If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
We can iterate our way to the future and success. Let’s start with one step, take that step, ask if that step worked and, if it did, take another step. If that step did not work, we revise our approach. We can accomplish amazing things but do not need to wait until we know everything or have it all perfectly defined before we start. Let’s move and revise along the way.
