Master Learning Agility

An essential leadership quality is the willingness to remain open to new ways of thinking and intentionally learn new skills. The ability to derive meaning and continuously learn and adapt even during challenging situations, is an indicator of thriving leadership.

Studies on learning agility, identify five key qualities: innovating (willing to challenge the status quo), performing (calm during difficulty), reflecting (thoughtful to reflect on experiences), risking (consciously seeking out challenge), and defending (open to learning and feedback, over being defensive).
