  • Executive, Managerial, and Supervisory Selection

Latest Research on Learning Agility

Building Learning Agile Leaders and Organizations

The Age of Agility: Building Learning Agile Leaders and Organizations focuses on learning agility, one of the most important trends in the business world during the past decade. Surveys have found that learning agility is the most frequently used criterion to measure leadership potential. Yet despite this popularity there is a need to more systematically examine the construct. This volume brings together more than 50 authors with backgrounds in both academic research and talent management practice to address crucial questions such as: What specifically is learning agility? How many facets or dimensions does it have? How do we measure it? And how can it be developed in leaders and organizations? This book enhances our knowledge of learning agility, distilling and synthesizing scientific evidence with best practices and examining the construct through both practical and scientific lenses.

“Each chapter in this incredible collection of essays is a masterpiece replete with theories and ideas, research and evidence, and numerous tools and action items. Each chapter couples academic rigor with real world relevance.”

– Dr. David Ulrich

TALENTx7 Testimonials

Ken De Meuse and his colleagues have cracked the code on talent. With exceptional research and broad experience, they have created incredible and relevant insights on upgrading talent. Their TALENTx7 tool helps companies transform talent aspirations into actions.

The TALENTx7 Learning Agility represents the most leading edge assessment in the field. It has helped me add science to talent reviews with my Fortune 500 clients that no other tool has been able to provide. It provides a clear roadmap for the growth oriented professional or leader to know exactly where to focus in their development journey to be the best they can be. For the practitioner or coach, it is easy to learn and it is a powerful arsenal in the development toolbox. I have used a lot of assessments over the last two decades and if there is only one to use with identifying and developing high potentials, this would be my choice. I only wish I had this tool when I was designing the first global Succession Planning program with The Coca-Cola Company, since it works in any culture and would have made the whole talent process a lot easier (and objective)!

It’s great to have a tool that is multi-faceted, but not so complex that it confuses managers. The use of four accuracy scales gives me great confidence that the profiles are robust indications of managers’ learning agility. My clients have found the report easy to understand, and they can relate to the visual depiction of their strengths and derailers. I’m especially pleased to have access to a tool developed by Ken De Meuse, known and respected for his long-time work with Korn Ferry tools.

The TALENTx7 assessment offers powerful insights to High Potential individuals though its user-friendly representation of their learning agility data in simple dial formats. This helps individuals to quickly recognize their strengths and potential derailers in relation to their career aspirations. As their coach, the assessment provides me with an easily accessible language and tools to explore with them the two or three facets which will be most important for them to “dial up or dial down” to enable them to realize their potential and step up as leaders. An essential tool for those organizations serious about supporting the growth of their talent and understanding the strength of their leadership talent pools.
