Become a Better Learner

Staying within your comfort zone is a good way to prepare for today but a terrible way to prepare for tomorrow.

To sustain success, you must develop the capacity for rapid, continuous learning. Enlisting a coach can be an invaluable way to do it. But if you don’t have a coach, ask some colleagues for feedback on how you performed on a recent task. Don’t get defensive when you hear their answers — remind yourself that you’re trying to learn new things. Then make time for reflection. Get into the habit of asking yourself questions like “What have I learned from this experience?” and “What turned out differently than I expected?”

Leaders who demonstrate and encourage reflection both learn more themselves and lay the foundation for higher levels of learning agility in their teams and organizations.
