You are probably familiar with the research that shows:
• 70% of development happens on the job by doing and practicing
• 20% of development happens through mentoring and coaching
• 10% through formal training which includes instructor led workshops and e-learning courses
This research is intuitive as we all grew up with teachers, parents and coaches telling us to practice our spelling words, practice taking the shot, or practice our piano. They did this because they know that people only become great soccer players or great piano players by practicing and practicing.
The same is true for professional skills and competencies. No one is great at giving constructive feedback or negotiating or any other skill or competency by going through an e-learning course. The person needs to practice and practice to get good and become great!
