Nurse manager learning agility and observed leadership ability: A case study

Kimberly S. Glassman, Jennifer Withall

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Successful nurse leaders produce the best outcomes. Identifying potential nurse leaders in existing nursing management teams becomes a critical task for the future growth and development of the organization. Learning agility (LA) is a concept that has been used to predict potential for leadership in several fields, but has not been explored in a nursing population. This pilot study and organization case example provide a baseline for how LA can be used in nursing to identify areas for development, performance improvement, and predict success in a leadership role. LA can be used as a vehicle for talent management or as a conceptual grounding for leadership development programs.
