The Story

"Machines are learning faster and smarter. What about human beings?"

This question led me to return to school to find new answers to old questions. I spent four years researching lifelong learning in my doctoral studies. I interviewed career switchers, conducted quantitative analyses to distill the significant factors, and examined what top, average, and bottom learners did differently. Little did I know that this research journey would parallel my learning and transformation as an entrepreneur and researcher. I am grateful for this journey.

How Is This Book Organized?

In this book, I talk about the what and why of learning agility. The bulk of the book goes into the how of learning agility:
The pivotal factor sustaining lifelong learning and how to maximize its impact.

Essential learning attitudes beyond the Growth Mindset to improve learning productivity.

How to design your own accelerated learning process to gain mastery faster with less effort.

How to shape your workplace into your learning playground, propelling your personal and professional growth.

Strategies to foster a culture of learning in your team, amplifying collective results.

This book is an output from a question, “When machines are learning faster and smarter, what about human beings? How are we learning?
