My company doesn’t offer much in terms of formal training. How can I learn more?

  • Keep in mind the 70-20-10 rule of thumb.
  • Formal training accounts for only about 10 percent of development; 70 percent is from on-the-job experiences, and 20 percent is from other people, such as your boss.
  • Learning and development occur in first-time situations and difficult challenges.
  • Look for ways to stretch and grow by volunteering for new assignments and going outside your comfort zone. There’s nothing like a complex problem or a good crisis to accelerate your learning.

Based on: Advance by Burnison, Gary.

  • Learning determines your earnings for life—and learning can be as simple as following good old-fashioned curiosity.
  • Lifelong learning means failing fast (and learning faster).
  • Learning generally only happens when you’re outside your comfort zone.
  • Learning agility—applying past lessons and experiences to new and first-time challenges and situations—will help you handle ambiguity and complexity and find new and innovative solutions.
  • Purposefully surround yourself with people who are better than you.
