“Global organisational consulting firm Korn Ferry says three decades of research has shown that “learning agility” is a reliable indicator of whether people have the aptitude to become business leaders. In a research paper, it showed agile learners absorb information from experiences and use them to navigate unfamiliar situations. “They are often described as flexible, resourceful, adaptable and thoughtful – in short, an ideal fit for mission-critical roles,” it said.
