This is a spot-on post, Alexandra. Because business processes and products are constantly changing, and because of a firm's need to maintain competitive advantage, learning has become the sine qua non for both organizations and individuals. As a result there's a great deal new research on the subject.

The reason smart people get promoted faster is that they acquire knowledge more rapidly and acquire more of it. But one of the most fascinating research conclusions is that the more you learn, the faster you can learn. Learning skills follow the same rules for learning as interpersonal or leadership skills. Although I have a number of blogs on learning, this might be the most relevant: http://bit.ly/25HaHX

@Dan E: A helpful contribution as usual. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your expertise.
