Learning Agility provides an organisation and its workforce with the ability to adapt and respond positively to change.
Being a Learning Agile focused organisation according to studies carried out by Korn Ferry (2012) has proven to be highly beneficial and directly linked to organisational success.
Agility refers to how one thinks, problem solves and how people relate with each other on a day to day basis in the workplace. This may be likened to the recent performance by Australia’s very own Socceroos, indicative of how Learning Agility has been adopted into team and game strategies.
After a long drought of heavy losses experienced by the Socceroos pre-2010, the team’s evolution and Learning Agility has seen them playing better than ever with more consistent wins and competing in this year’s World Cup 2018 tournament even recently drawing with Denmark!
This steady path of improvement for the Australian Soccer team may be attributed to the adoption of a Learning Agile approach through, adaptation, problem solving and applying themselves to the changing conditions. Having truly agile individuals who can easily adapt to unpredictable working situations will enable an organisation to respond swiftly and positively to change.
Cultivating a culture of Learning Agility may be adopted in the following ways:
1. Establish an ongoing forum for all employees to understand about Learning Agility and how it will benefit them and their organisation for the future
2. Build Learning Agility into day to day working to increase buy-in, enhance knowledge, understanding and acceptance of the concept
3. Develop communications around Learning Agility to really drive it across the organisation and encourage continuous conversations about Learning Agility and its benefit
It was recently announced that James Packer had resigned from the Board of Crown Resorts due to mental health.
With key personalities now publicly disclosing that they are unwell due to mental health, “ the times they are a-changin,” as famously sung by Bob Dylan. Personalities such as: Buddy Franklin, Jessica Rowe, Daniel Kowalski and today James Packer are enabling others within our community to realise that mental health is something that can and does effect anyone; regardless of who you are!
With mental health again in the spotlight, this provides another opportunity for workplaces to increase awareness about Mental Health and support staff whom may be experiencing mental health issues.
With this in mind, I’d encourage all leaders to:
- Communicate the relevance and impact of mental health to the workplace
- Provide education to leaders and employees on how to identify and support mental health concerns
- Actively support individuals with mental health in returning to the workplace
- Drive a diverse and open culture in the workplace where mental health is openly spoken about
- Minimise stigma and stereotypes about mental health
- Be available and responsive to assist employees with mental health concerns when they are identified
- Tap into resources from organisations such as Beyond Blue, the Black Dog Institute & Headspace
As consultants we are often asked to develop change programs and or assist with major change initiatives, however often we see that some organisations aren’t ready for change.
Please refer to the below to determine if your organisation is ready for change:
If your organisation is committed to the above, your organisation is ready for change.

International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world, where women are recognised for achievements today and throughout history; regardless of ethnic, cultural, economic or political divisions.
I congratulate those women who have taken on an industry or profession that was / still is predominately male dominated. These women have pushed back, achieved their goals and paved a way for others to achieve their dreams no matter what obstacles they were faced with!
What can we learn from these high achieving women?
No matter who you are regardless of gender; if you are committed, resilient and focused you can:
- cut through barriers
- achieve your goals and
- inspire others to achieve their dreams!
As we say goodbye to the Winter Olympics we can reflect on those elite sports men and women who performed in such awe-inspiring events. In our lifetime most of us will only dream about being able to attempt such mind-blowing activities.
In our own lives though, many of us know the benefits of exercise and sport. Those benefits can not only be incredible in our day to day living but, in the workplace; – increasing productivity, boosting morale, driving engagement and enhancing the working relationships for individuals and teams.
So how can employers encourage a movement for employees to encourage them to become more active without seeming overzealous! Please refer to below for some ideas on how to facilitate a healthy workforce:
