In this chapter, we focus on individual characteristics that affect individual con­ tinuous learning. Despite the fact that we argue that humans are by nature learn­ ers, many individuals are not active continuous learners at work. Beyond adapt­ ing, people often seem to prefer to stay with the behaviors that have made them successful, even when the conditions change and past behaviors do not work as well or may not even be appropriate. Most people leam easily within their comfort zone but find it difficult to leam when the circumstances change. That is, most people do not actively pursue learning at work and require considerable support for their learning to occur (Bunker & Webb, 1992).
