leadership agility

By July 18, 2011Leadership

In their book, “The Truth About Leadership,” authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Pozner write about leadership agility.  They define leadership agility as the ability to learn and adapt on the fly.  Leaders who lack agility are rigid, locked-in to methods that may not work any more.  Or they may hold values that are detrimental rather than helpful.

As you lead, you will encounter challenges, difficulties, and setbacks.  Agile leaders are learners as well.  They learn from what they experiences, in order to improve the next time.

Do you have leadership agility?
