Learning Agility & Leadership Agility

Increase Your Long-Term Potential With Learning Agility

Leading with agility is about learning from experience and applying it in new ways.

In times of change, leaders need to be more agile than ever. Adapting to new business strategies, working across cultures, dealing with virtual teams, and taking on new assignments all demand that leaders be flexible and agile.

To be a high performer and increase your long-term potential, you need a way to deal with the unknown — and fast. Fortunately, it’s never too soon (or too late) to increase your learning agility.

Learning agility is about knowing how to learn — knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do. It’s about learning from experience and applying it in new ways, adapting to new circumstances and opportunities.

Experience is vital to your success, but merely having an experience (such as a challenging new job or a stretch assignment) isn’t enough. Savvy learners know how to apply the essential lessons within each experience to future situations.

With improved learning agility, you can make the most out of your experiences. As you build the habits that help you figure things out as you go, you’ll improve how you navigate new and difficult situations and increase your contribution to your organization.

Ultimately, your ability to continuously learn and adapt will determine the extent to which you thrive in today’s turbulent times — and succeed in the future.

“We came upon the Learning Agility Workshop and thought it could be a great way to connect with our leaders and give them some very easy to use, applicable tools that they can apply right away on the job. We got raving reviews and a very, very positive response from the leaders. We’ve also since embedded the workshop into our core manager development program for senior leaders, so it will be a regular offering that we make available.”
