How does mentoring differ from coaching?

Mentoring is very different from coaching. And both are different from knowledge sharing

Information Leadership

The CIO has primary accountability for Information Leadership.

Should an Executive be required to mentor direct reports?

A mentor should not be a mentee's boss or in his/her direct reporting line.

There’s no ‘T’ in ‘CIO’

Not even in the full form ‘Chief Information Officer’. No ‘T’ and no ‘Technology’ either. The job title is not ‘Chief Information Technology Officer’.

So why is there so much focus in CIO media channels on technology?

What are the ideal CIO characteristics?

Context is everything.

What's the ideal IT spend relative to revenue?

This question does not make sense but unfortunately, too many senior non-IT executives still ask it and (perhaps masochistically) many CIOs inflict the question and answer upon themselves.
