We usually think about practice as repetition, sometimes mindless repetition.
Deliberate practice requires focused attention and is conducted with the specific goal of improving performance. In this talk, Janet shares ideas and examples about how to use deliberate practice in your work (or in your life) to change how you do something, or perhaps improve how you do it. Janet extends the idea of deliberate practice from individuals to teams to help bridge the gap between individuals, or even between teams such as business and delivery teams.
For example, you’ve learned a new technique in the conference you want to share with your team, but not sure how to implement it, Janet will share some key ideas to get you to start practicing that technique with a deliberate focus.
