CIO Leadership – does it exist?

Are all CIOs leaders or followers? Does it matter where the CIO sits in an organisation to be a leader within that organisation?  Can you learn to be a CIO Leader?   These are questions that I have heard for a long time in my career.  As a seasoned CIO I ask myself them constantly – am I a leader or a follower?  The answer is not easy as it depends on your personal journey through the professional career you have chosen and within the context of the organisations you have worked for.  In some organisations I was a leader, in others I was a followers while in others I was both – schizophrenic or what!
