  9. 11. Deliberate Practice
  10. 12. “ Truly great people in any field devote many hours to deliberate practice . Deliberate practice is an activity that goes beyond repetition. It is consistent practice where the goal is to continually improve performance , reaching beyond your current capabilities, and seeking feedback on results .” Dr. K. Anders Ericsson Florida State University Professor 1993 Research on ‘Expert Performance’
  11. 13. <ul><li>Approach each critical task with an explicit goal of getting much better at it. Set goals that are just beyond your level of competency. </li></ul><ul><li>2. As you do the task, focus on what’s happening and why you’re doing it the way you are. </li></ul><ul><li>3. After the task, get feedback on your performance from multiple sources. Don’t get emotional about it, and make changes in your behavior as necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Continually build mental models of your situation – of your industry, Praxis, your career. Expand the models to encompass more factors. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Do those steps regularly, not sporadically. Occasional practice does not work. Consistency is the key . </li></ul>
