The capacity to learn is a gift
The ability to learn is a skill
The willingness to learn is a choice

In the tech lead role, the learning format also changes compared to the developer stage.
Change the content to learn (code and best practices, frameworks vs. leadership, soft skills), change the time you can dedicate to it (with StackOverflow or pair programming, learning is an inherent part of the task, now not so much), change the format in which you can find the content (StackOverflow vs. books ).
