Learning Agility: The Five Dimensions of Leaders | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"Learning Agility is a key to unlocking our adaptation proficiency. It is 'knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do.' Research shows that Learning Agility is a reliable indicator of leadership potential because learning agile people 'excel at absorbing information from their experience and then extrapolating from those to navigate unfamiliar situations.' Learning Agility is a complex set of skills that allows us to learn something in one situation and apply it in a completely different situation. It is about gathering patterns from one context and then using those patterns in a completely new context. In short, Learning Agility is the ability to learn, adapt, and apply ourselves in constantly morphing conditions." | via Forbes
