Leadership qualities of CIOs who do big things
From Jan. 20
: CIO Jim Whalen has been a people pleaser for as long as he can remember. More often associated with the female gender — and frequently called out as a trait that needs fixing — it can be assumed that people pleasing rarely tops the list of the leadership qualities of powerful business executives. That doesn't seem to have slowed down Whalen, who oversees IT strategy at Boston Properties Inc. that was founded by mogul Mortimer Zuckerman and specializes in the kind of marquee office buildings that ooze machismo.
