Mentoring Introverted Leaders since 2010.
Welcome to my blog. I’m Ben Woelk and I’m the Program Manager for the Information Security Office at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I’m a past co-chair of the Awareness and Training Working Group of the EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council and former Director and the Chair of the Community Affairs Committee of the Society for Technical Communication. I’m a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and I’m also ITIL v3. Foundations certified. I hold an Advanced Certificate in Technical Information Design and a couple of Masters Degrees in liberal arts. I’ve been working in technical communications since 1992, Information Security since 2004.
I’m changing the focus of this blog. I’ll be writing about what’s always been an interest, but has recently become a new-found passion–providing leadership coaching and mentoring to introverted leaders, especially those who are new leaders or who want to become leaders. I can provide keynote and conference presentations and workshops. I will also speak and advocate for introverts in the workplace. Contact me if you’re interested!
Previously, this blog has been devoted to my thoughts on improving the state of information security awareness through social media and on technical communication and the Society for Technical Communication in the forefront. I will still write about these areas occasionally, and they’re the foci of my professional life.
You can follow my postings on Twitter (@benwoelk, @RIT_infosec, @Stc_rochester), Google+, or check out my LinkedIn profile. I’ve also created a Slack channel to foster introverted leadership discussions.
Oh, and one last thing: the opinions expressed in this blog are mine alone and are not representative of current or past employers.
Thanks for visiting!
