Do You Need a CCO and CLO?

The Performance Improvement Blog

Should your organization have a CCO and CLO? Paul Hebert argues against organizations appointing a Chief Culture Officer.

I agree with Hebert and I have similar concerns with having a CLO (Chief Learning Officer). Leadership for culture and learning should come from CEOs.

Manager's Role in Learning and Performance Improvement

The Performance Improvement Blog

What should be a manager’s role in employee learning? Managers have control of their own learning, not corporate trainers, HR, or a CLO.
