Thanks for the nod. It was great to see you today.
IRT your question I have maintained for some time that it is the CHCO/CLO leadership connection which will drive the cultural shift. I have had some significant pushback on this, mostly from CHCOs and CLOs who say it starts with even higher-level management to establish that paradigm and I do not disagree at all. MY point is that whatever culture/tone/organizational climate is set by Secretaries and Under Secretaries, it will be up to those Executives who are chiefly responsible for the PEOPLE to carry out the necessary activity to make that direction actually turn into reality – the CHCOs and CLOs. Certainly, the CHCOs and CLOs are also in the key position of knowing what their people are asking for in order to inform higher management, but I have found that it’s been very difficult for CHCOs and CLOs to get out of the “brushfire” routine in order to really be the visionaries AND implementers of creating a continuous learning culture.
Just a few thoughts.
