Learn from your own experiences to enhance Learning Agility

Becoming an Agile Leader: A Guide to Learning From Your Experiences explores two key pillars of exceptional leadership: the right experiences and the ability to learn from those experiences. The right experiences provide a challenge for you to grow personally and professionally. But having those experiences is only part of the equation. What you learn from those experiences is what prepares you for your next big challenge.

Agile leaders seek out new and challenging experiences from which they draw insightful lessons that will serve them in future endeavors. This is also known as Learning Agility – a proven success differentiator for leaders. The qualities of learning agile people take shape in five particular ways: Self-Awareness, Mental Agility, People Agility, Change Agility, and Results Agility.

This book highlights exceptional leaders from around the world, including those profiled in the book Becoming an Agile Leader, who are archetypes of Learning Agility. A close look at their key life experiences and lessons learned illustrates how each one became so adept at an aspect of Learning Agility. After illustrating how formative events shape leaders’ agility, a series of exercises and questions guide your reflection on key events in your own life.

  • Harvest lessons from your past experiences – it’s never too late to reflect on and learn from your experiences.
  • Extract lessons from current experiences – the things that are the most stressful are often the experiences you can learn the most from.
  • Thoughtfully plan for future experiences – finding the right challenge and knowing what you want to get out of it will help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Becoming an Agile Leader: A Guide to Learning From Your Experiences illustrates how to seek out and learn from experiences that will enrich your life, build your leadership skills, and make you more effective in what you do. It helps you harness the power of your own experiences to enhance your Learning Agility.
