Timothy R. Clark: The movement from sheep-dipping to slow dripping in employee development
- Identify a competency your team needs to work on.
- Break the competency down into a set of defined skills and behaviors.
- Search and gather development resources from the Internet.
- Vet the resources for relevance and quality.
- Identify the best resources and fill your drip feeder with the ones that make the cut.
- Drip-feed one learning resource to your team as a short training segment in a weekly meeting.
- Assign employees to apply the skill or behavior and report back the next week.
- Continue drip-feeding with weekly application and accountability.
