Social Media Roundup: Clips for Thought

ASAE 2013 presenters and attendees share their video recommendations, including the key to inspirational leadership and what CIOs need to do to keep conversations productive.

Video recommendations from ASAE 2013 include author Simon Sinek’s take on the importance of finding answers to the question “Why?” Also  in today’s Social Media Roundup, why IT officers need to reignite dialogue with clients.

Start With Why

First principles matter to leadership. ASAE 2013 attendee and association professional Nathan Victoria recommended author Simon Sinek’s video from TED Talks on how great leaders inspire action. Sinek suggests that inspirational leadership stems from answering the question “Why?” (ht @NathanVictoria)

Conversation Changer

CIOs need to change the conversation to get better results. Thad Lurie, managing director of technology consulting services for Old Town IT, told conference-goers to check out a panel discussion on how chief information officers need to have a “dramatic new conversation with their C-suite colleagues.” Lurie told the audience that he intended to watch the clip on Harvard Business Review casually, but said that he was glued to the screen. The panel includes business author Gary Hamel; Jim Stikeleather, author and chief innovation officer for Dell Services; Leni Kaufman, CIO of Newport News Shipbuilding; and Tim Theriault, CIO of Walgreens.
