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.
