Practicing tasks and skills isn’t commonplace in most workplaces, but it should be, says Doug Lemov, a managing director of Uncommon Schools.
He recommends four steps.
- Pick three skills worth improving. Practice the tough stuff—“anything that happens live that you can’t do over again if it doesn’t go the way you want it to.”
- Create drills. This helps you isolate a skill and really focus on it.
- Do it daily. Incorporate practice into your daily routine.
- Hire smart. Someone eager to learn trumps the smug, but slightly more qualified candidate. You want a culture where everyone wants to improve.
