Research shows that learning from experience is the best way to develop skills and talent. There are three types of experience that impacts an individual’s growth, on-the job experiences, learning from others and learning through courses and formal training. How you spend your me in each of these categories matters. The biggest growth can be seen when someone intentionally splits their me by the 70-20-10 rule. This means:
- 70% of learning comes from on-the-job experiences and challenges
- 20% of learning comes for other people (mentorship)
- 10% of learning comes from courses and formal training
At Christensen Group, we are committed to bringing to life opportunities that align to the 70-20-10 learning model. You’ll see on this development page, we’ve outlined ways to grow your skills.

Resources: Webinars, Educational Series
You can find plenty of webinars and educational courses to grow your technical or leadership skills. As a general rule, we’d encourage you to take at least one thing away from every formal session you learn and try to apply this into your job. Being intentional about applying one thing learned will help you grow skills, not just hear it and forget it which happens often when learning through formal classwork.
