Choose An Effective Learning Leader
Unfortunately, the learning function in too many companies has either become a revolving door of well-intentioned leaders who lack clear support and direction from the business or is led by someone better suited to run human resources.
Learning Should Directly Improve People and Business Performance
There is a clear and compelling business case for companies to become learning organizations and to enhance their capabilities to adapt, grow, and thrive (or just keep pace) in these uncertain times.
Unfortunately, Learning Function Misalignment is Rampant
Without a clear alignment to strategic business priorities and a learning road map to address the most pressing organizational opportunities and challenges, the training and development function is doomed to fail. It is, and should be, impossible to keep the attention of the CEO and leadership team if learning investments and initiatives are not directly linked to what matters most to employees, customers, managers, leaders, and the business as a whole.
Without relevance and alignment, executive teams become disillusioned with progress and decide to pay attention to other areas that matter more.
Helping Learning Leaders to Make an Impact
Effective learning leaders and Chief Learning Offices (CLO) are purpose-driven, weave learning into the fabric of important business decisions, and focus on creating a competitive advantage through people. In fact, no other leadership role seems better positioned to foster a strong learning culture to attract, develop, engage, and retain top talent.
