The new driver of competitive advantage is the speed in which an individual or organization can learn. Learning equals the ability to adapt and adaptability in today's business environment equals competitive advantage. Now more than ever, hiring someone for their willingness and capacity to learn may be more important than knowledge and experience. For us "more seasoned" professionals that can sting a little, but when we have knowledge, experience AND willingness to learn we have the strongest combination. My friend Mike Jones of Discover Leadership encourages us all to "play like a rookie" and that truly is great advice! A natural thirst to learn is the key to staying relevant. By the way, if you are going to the Collision Industry Conference or NACE/Automechanika, let me know, I would love to say hello.
