This report focuses on a person's learning agility, one of the most widely talked about and sought after competencies in 21st Century workplaces. It is especially important in the context of automation and job transformation, where the need to upskill and redeploy staff is essential to the survival and growth of many businesses.
Learning agility is multifaceted and includes a growth mindset, self-awareness, personal drive to progress and succeed, willingness to put new learning into action, and speed and flexibility of learning.
The Metacognitive Assessment Series (MAS) Learning Agility report identifies an individual’s learning style, and which facets of learning agility they can cultivate and strengthen to become more learning agile.
MAS LEARNING AGILITY REPORT
This report aligns a person to 1 of 4 learning styles, based on the interaction of their mental agility (speed and flexibility of thinking) and cognitive confidence (self-belief):
Experiential – These individuals learn best through active experimentation, approaching learning with enthusiasm and confidence. However, they may skim through some important details and may overestimate their understanding of new information.
Agile – These individuals identify and understand concepts, showing high speed of learning and high self-belief. With strong self-awareness, personal drive, curiosity and confidence, these people put new learning into action and will quickly bounce back from mistakes and failures.
Systematic – These individuals learn best by following procedures and rules. They concentrate on the steps involved in learning and develop confidence through practical hands-on experience. They may feel some frustration if instructions are ambiguous and difficult to follow.
Reflective – These individuals learn best by deep study of details and prefer small groups when learning new skills. They are hesitant to put new learning into action in first time situations, and their self-doubts can impact their resilience to bounce back.
Based on a person’s Learning Style, their strengths and development needs on the following 5 facets of learning agility are provided:
• speed and flexibility of learning
• willingness to put new learning into action
• personal drive to progress and succeed
• growth mindset
