How would you describe your growth and development over the last decade? Have you amassed 10 years of experience or one year experience 10 times over?
If you’re ready for a promotion or have your line of sight on the C-suite, it’s time to take charge of your learning. And the best way to do that is to use the 70-20-10 rule. See the image below. In the first category: are you advancing your knowledge and skills on the job through meaningful experiences? The second category is learning from others. Do you have a mentor? Is it time for a coach, or to read some of those books and magazines on your shelf? Are you stretching yourself and are you willing to admit to your peers, boss, and direct reports that there are still things you can learn? Finally, the third category is formal classroom/workshop learning – away from your desk.
So, which category needs immediate attention? Which categories are you happy with?
On the job learning-experimental,observations,etc.
Learning from others-mentoring/coaching etc.
Formal learning-workshops, conferences
