Leadership Essentials: Learning

Learning can be defined as a measurable and relatively permanent change in behaviour through experience, instruction, study, or being taught. There are many ways of learning at work, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. People can use almost any kind of relevant experience as a learning opportunity to gain knowledge or learn new skills or new behaviours. Opportunities vary from formal to informal, structured to self-directed, and on-the-job to off-the-job experiences.

‘Leadership Essentials: Learning’ provides an overview of why learning is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how learning can help you become a better leader.

The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at learning in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:

  • Growth Mindset
  • Personal Development Planning
  • Formal and Informal Learning


Please note: You can only unlock Leadership Essentials and Spotlights if you are a member.
