How to Become a CDO
Frank Kalman - 11/13/11
This article by Frank Kalman impacted me with my Colorado Christian University - Masters of Organizational Leadership studies while serving with Samaritan’s Purse in Juba, South Sudan. Initially I was thinking CDO is just another “C” level title for corporate ladder climbers to attain. It may very well be that to many but to me I see a value in its implementation. Our current class is LED511 Organizational Leadership: Theory and Practice. It has been rather stimulating with studies of an Organizational Behavior (OB) approach for initiating, managing, and measuring manager/leadership principles. We have focused on Organizational Behavioral problems and look to different solutions for leading an organization through the mine field of hazards. Having a CDO integrating diversity within subunits of the organization would help combat “group think” and various other collective social ills in the our workplaces. In the end, I am happy that CDO’s have grown out of the traditional HR roles and “are leveraging their roles to impact business”. I will continue to watch their continued positional growth in organizations and I look forward to serving with a few of them. Loren
