Seth Godin is the author of over a dozen bestselling books, the founder of two successful internet companies, a popular speaker and one of the most popular business bloggers on the planet. In the video interview below, I talk to Seth about his new book The Icarus Deception, a provocative and personal exploration of leadership and doing work that matters (see my review here).
This discussion focuses in on how the lessons from this book apply to CIOs and IT Leaders. We talk about the role of the CIO and the trap that CIOs may have set for themselves, the need to move beyond our comfort zones and some thoughts on getting there, the value and limitations of “domain knowledge,” a revealing viewpoint on the our roles as individuals in the world of work, and what it takes to put forth an idea in a clear, concise, and compelling manner.
