Q: Who is this for?

A: CIOIC Peer Groups are for Chief Information Officers of Enterprise level companies who are ambitious, friendly, and helpful.

CIOIC Members want to level up their capabilities for different reasons:

  • They need answers to hard questions.
  • They feel alone with a lot of responsibility on their shoulders. It would be nice to have a trusted peer or advisor to talk to.
  • They are bored or under-utilized.
  • They are over-stressed or over-worked.
  • They want more money.
  • They want more experience.
  • They want more challenges.
  • They want a better culture fit.
  • They want better staff.
  • They want a larger project.

The CIOIC directly strategizes each of these.

Q: How Does It Work?

A: Each CIOIC peer group meets virtually on a video call each month. There is no travel.

The groups are small discussion groups, comprised of the same 4 to 10 Enterprise-level CIO members, each of whom sit in a Hot Seat and share the career challenge they are currently working on.

Members then share their direct experience with a similar challenge, the solutions that worked, the “gotchas” to avoid, and provide an action plan of steps the member needs to take before the next meeting, to solve their challenge.

Members hold each other accountable, so that at every meeting, members complete their action plan, achieve concrete results, and make progress.

Each meeting is run by a professional Facilitator with Enterprise-Level CIO experience, so that meetings are run on time, each member is heard, their challenge is discussed, and they leave with an action plan.

Members gain the added benefit of communication channels to talk to their peer members in between meetings, so that their progress continues throughout the month.

Q: What's My Time Commitment?

A: Members spend 2 to 4 hours per month on one virtual video call.

Members can also contact each other in between meetings with additional questions or ideas.
