Technology has turned business into a do-it-yourself platform. With a small amount of research, you can find just about anything you’re looking for. A new client management system, a data storage application, marketing tools, data security software … in no time at all you can piece together an elaborate system for your business.
Perhaps no department has undergone more change in the past few years than IT.
And change is far from slowing down. Every day new technologies fall into place, allowing businesses to work faster, better, and far more efficiently than ever before. But with change comes both opportunity and threat.
This was the year you made the switch. With a lot of effort, you switched your entire structure to a cloud based system. And things are running smooth.
You are happy with a cloud based business model. The benefits are many. No longer do you have to worry about servers being in your office.
Leadership has its benefits.
It can also become one of the most difficult jobs to have, especially when faced with some of the toughest decisions of your life.
Things like firing someone, downsizing an office, or even canceling a project can increase a leader’s stress tenfold.
