The Center for Creative Leadership tells us that leaders develop and learn to lead through experience. The 70/20/10 rule:
In typical development plans there is insufficient time spent on experiential learning or there is a lack of structure to support the learning that occurs in real work situations.
- 70% time spent action learning through fieldwork: small tests of change, reflecting, testing assumptions, deconstructing conversations
- 20% time spent in coaching relationship, thinking partners, group reflection exercises
- 10% time spent on introduction of concept, best practice, and cognitive tools to support action learning
