John Hagel is a business writer, so we shouldn't expect his analysis of learning to be deep, and it isn't. But he does capture an important concept: that as you drill down through the levels of learning effectiveness, beyond skills, knowlege and capabilities, you get non-cognitive factors such as passion. "I've written about herehere and here," he writes. "This form of passion has three components – (1) a long-term commitment to achieving an increasing impact in a particular domain, (2) a questing disposition that seeks out and is excited by new challenges and (3) a connecting disposition that actively seeks to connect with others who might be helpful in addressing these new challenges."
