Political candidates aren’t the only ones that have a bad reputation. After years of cost cutting and turmoil, IT teams often view their management as untrustworthy, self-serving, and short-sighted. So how do you lead a team when starting from an atmosphere of institutional mistrust? http://bit.ly/2lMyl5P
