Thanks, Karen! I appreciate it. These are hard roads to walk. It’s always a little easier to describe the challenge than to actually love it. It wasn’t very pretty. And I owe a lot to a really good therapist!

Jennifer Sparrow
01:42:12
LL #1: If you’re going to be an internal candidate, you need to be fully comfortable with whatever the outcome is.
Tracy Mendolia-Moore
01:42:25
I'd like to know a little about the degrees and schooling each panelist has, and whether they view these degrees as a pertinent to their career success. I’m contemplating a PhD, but I am not sure if as a single mother and professional, I the ROI is worth the time away from my children.
Kara McKinn
01:42:37
Thank you panelists for your vulnerability and honesty. Your hard-won lessons and advice are wonderful.
Jennifer Sparrow
01:42:39
LL#2: Words Matter—what you say can profoundly impact people

LL #3: You should have in place institutional practices that help to give clear pathways for career progression
Jennifer Sparrow
01:43:34
LL#4: You can do all the research you want for a new position, but sometimes there are things you’re simply not going to know until you get there
Jennifer Sparrow
01:43:54
LL#5: If it’s not a good fit, you should pull the band aid off and make a change
Jennifer Sparrow
01:44:07
LL#6: Nurture your network
Jennifer Sparrow
01:44:30
LL#7: Ask for help: it doesn’t show weakness, it shows strength
Jennifer Sparrow
01:45:16
LL#8: Even in the darkest of times, what you learn will shape ho you lead in the future. Sometimes it hurts and sometimes those lessons suck, but they are all a part of the leader I am today.
Amanda Jones
01:46:05

Don’t hesitate to reach out to women in IT you meet - including people on these panels
Sherri Braxton
01:47:55
They are willing to mentor and share - just be deliberate in defining what type of support you need from them
Jennifer Sparrow
01:48:53
@crystal…it gets different…

I believe that MaggiementionedLeadership Coaching. Can you all talk more about this? How did you decide to look for a leadership coach and where do you begin looking?
Sherri Braxton
01:51:04
@Timmie…if you can manage, I say try to pursue them both, but find a balance that allows that.
Sherri Braxton
01:51:26
I teach online for other institutions while maintaining my current position
Sherri Braxton
01:51:52
I have always enjoyed teaching - doing it as an adjunct allows me to vary the level of commitment required
Liv Gjestvang
01:52:04
@Leslie In terms of mentoring and growth, I found Educause Learning Technology Leadership Institute a really powerful program when I attended in 2008.
Sherri Braxton
01:53:04
@Robin: go to conferences and professional development events. Connect with them via linked in, exchange emails...
Liv Gjestvang
01:53:41

Liv Gjestvang
01:55:37
@Robert great question about how to get noticed without a terminal degree and a degree in English. For me it has been all about relationships and record of work. If you are able to do work that has an impact and showcase what you have achieved, and then find people in your field who can vouch for you - this will go far. There are some doors that won’t open without degrees, I certainly recognize that, but there may be less than we think.
Liv Gjestvang
01:56:29
@Dave you asked what books/leaders inspired you?
Crystal Bedley
01:58:24
During these disruptions, what aspects of your work or life did you outsource? Another way to think about this question is what kinds of professional support did you seek to get through the transition?
Tracy Mendolia-Moore
01:59:08
Do any of the panelists consider themselves an introvert? If so, how do you come out of your comfort-zone when it comes to networking.
Liv Gjestvang
01:59:43
I loved Bryan Stephenson’s book Just Mercy. He spoke on campus several years ago and I was really moved by his passion. I also love Brene Brown’s audio recording “the power of vulnerability” - very inspiring for me.
Liv Gjestvang
02:02:25
Thank you. And YES - I am an introvert!
Jennifer SMith
02:02:29
Thank you very much! Thank you to Marcia for arranging this session!
Stacy Morrone
02:02:41
Thanks everyone!
Tracy Mendolia-Moore
02:02:42
This was a wonderful session!! Thank you!!
Liv Gjestvang
02:03:11
I can perform well as an extrovert, but I’ve had to learn to honor the introvert part of myself or things don’t go well.
Crystal Ramsay
02:04:40
Marcia - How can watch party participants get a copy of the chat transcript?
Liv Gjestvang
02:05:03
@Sarah and @Tracy, I have learned (still learning) what kind of down time I need and how to stand up and take it even when others are going strong. At conferences I sometimes don’t meet for drinks with a group, but catch up with a smaller group at dinner, or just take an evening off for myself. Reading Susan Cain’s book, Quiet really helped me understand the introvert part of me.
Brenda Spychalla
02:06:18
Hi Lois - Marcia doesn’t see your connection. I think we can use this time to test.
Liv Gjestvang
02:06:45
@Ankita, yes - I will share the mentor template and a few other mentor resources.
Liv Gjestvang
02:08:01
OK, last thing. I mentioned this Harvard Business Review Article, “The Seasoned Executive’s Decision Making Styles” - it’s a great read for anyone transitioning from doing to managing to leading.

Brenda Spychalla
02:08:38
Lois are you able to connect in via video?
Liv Gjestvang
02:08:41
Make sure you click the section called “Charting Decision Styles” - it’s the best part.
Marcia Dority Baker
02:08:51
Yes, we are recoding the virtual conference. The video and transcript will be available next week.
Stephanie Klein
02:10:19
@Tracy - I'm not a panelist but wanted to respond on being an introvert... introverts can have a very wide range of comfort or skill networking or being in large groups, but what we all have in common is how we recharge. Extroverts find social contact energizing (and even an extrovert can be very shy!) Introverts don't - we need quiet time, usually alone time, to recharge. Like Liz mentioned - take time for yourself. If you want to do group drinks or dinner, find an hour in the afternoon, skip the sessions and chill in your room.
Tracy Mendolia-Moore
02:12:11
@Liv thanks for the book recommendation. I have that book, but I haven't cracked it open yet. I'll bump it up on my reading list!
Liv Gjestvang
02:12:54
HI Tracy - I had the book for a year and didn’t crack it either. Finally listened to the audio book - it was a great listen!
Liv Gjestvang
02:13:39
In response to question about how to manage professional growth and networking as an introvert, I recommended Quiet, by Susan Cain.
Liv Gjestvang
02:14:05
@Sherry In response to question about how to manage professional growth and networking as an introvert, I recommended Quiet, by Susan Cain.
Tracy Mendolia-Moore
02:14:54
@Stephanie; thanks, that's a great way to look at it. The networking sessions are always overwhelming for me, but I always go because I don't want to miss out. At my next conference I'll try to carve out time for me to rechange as to not become overwhelmed.
Anh-Thu Nguyen
02:15:01
Thanks @Liv for the recommendation

We cannot, you may swap the views by clicking the icon in the upper right of your video window
Liv Gjestvang
02:22:29
@Michelle I love that you are pointing out that calmness and quiet, in some ways, are your strength, even when these aren’t always framed as a traditional leadership strength. I think this is really powerful. And it’s a great way to model for others that “non-traditional” leadership styles can be very successful - more successful often - than traditional, big personality leadership.

Not sure if you’re taking questions - but I have one. I’ve heard Lois talk about how great it is to be at the table for the most exciting decisions made at the university. But from the outside, CIO looks like a really demanding job. How much do you have to sacrifice your life outside of work to be successful at work?
Dara Foias
02:32:24
Thank you so much for sharing the skills you'd like to have. They resonated very strongly with me.
Liv Gjestvang
02:43:46
@Lois, thank you for your honest answer. That actually is a relief to hear.
