With rapid changes and exponential growth of information, the command control style of management is gradually losing its steam.

The corporate board as one of the top leadership pillars must influence and exemplify progressive leadership and help to shape an ultra-modern digital organization effortlessly.

The “Future of CIO” blog has reached 10 million page views with about 10300+ blog postings in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the “hungry minds” and the “deep souls.” It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
