Leadership Development

The CIO Connect team has significant experience in developing the leadership capability of both individuals and teams. Whether coaching individual CIOs and senior IT leaders or delivering tailored development programmes for teams or cohorts of IT leaders, CIO Connect makes a difference.

Our experience of the role across so many organisations gives us a deep insight into both what and how to develop the leadership capability that will enable leaders at all levels to perform now and into the future.

CIO Connect is unique in being able to provide such support. We are grounded in the worlds of technology and leadership development.


  • Act as an independent executive coach, helping you or members of your team to perform now and prepare and plan for the future.
  • Connect you with other CIOs who can provide real practical insight to stimulate your thinking and planning.
  • Advise you on development opportunities, building your portfolio and developing your leadership effectiveness.
  • Provide one to one development sessions on key skills needed for success in senior roles.

In many instances, we give such support in close partnership with your internal sponsor or line manager as part of a personal development plan.

We can also provide you with the opportunity to develop and demonstrate your skills and expertise by participating in our workshops and feature in or co-author articles in the various publications that CIO Connect produce.

Your Team are key to your success and we can help you to identify potential and grow the talent and effectiveness of your team.

Our highly regarded ‘Next Generation’ programme can be delivered as a traditional workshop based development programme or as a more tailored 1:1 development programme. When working with us as an individual, we would integrate your development with participation in the CIO Connect workshop programme. In this way the whole experience provides a unique mix of focused one to one development, whilst having the opportunity to debate key issues with likeminded technology leaders.
