Becoming Resilient > Continuous Learning

Continuous Learning

The nature of resiliency asks that you acquire new skills and understanding and be able to apply them during times of change. Many managers resist learning new ways, holding on to old behaviors and skills even when changes make it obvious that they don’t work anymore. If you find yourself in that description, think about your resistance. It may be that you think your old ways are important to who you are and that changing might somehow affect your identity. Your old skills and behaviors might be deeply connected to your self-worth, your self-esteem; they might make you feel valuable when unfamiliar skills don’t. You may cling to your old habits because you don’t want to feel less competent during that clumsy learning stage when you take on new skills.

Take as much time as you can learning so that you don’t use your own experiences when they really don’t apply.”
