Learning Agility Factors
Learning agility is the ability and willingness to learn from experience and then apply that learning to perform successfully in new situations.
People who are learning agile:
- Seek out experiences to learn from
- Enjoy complex problems and challenges associated with new experiences.
- Get more out of those experiences because they have an interest in making sense of them.
- Perform better because they incorporate new skills into their repertoire. A person who is learning agile has more lessons, more tools, and more solutions to draw on when faced with new business challenges.
