December is one of my favourite times of the year. Its about family, fun, laughter and MasterChef!
Our family has a Christmas eve tradition where we watch a MasterChef Masterclass by one of the original Australian Judges. George would expertly navigate his way around the kitchen while schooling the eager contestants in the art of preparing the perfect meal. Imagine for a moment, a cooking demonstration, The chef, skilled and charismatic, not only shows the process but also explains the why behind each step, answering questions and offering tips. This immersive experience leaves you with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the culinary arts, far beyond any recipe book.
This is the power of live training. Just like that chef’s demonstration, formal training sessions (the foundational 10% of the 70-20-10 learning model) provide a structured, engaging environment where learners can interact directly with experts. It’s where complex concepts are broken down, immediate feedback is received, and a deeper, more comprehensive understanding is achieved.
Back to Christmas eve…….with our MasterChef aprons adorned we attempt to repeat the culinary lessons in a family Christmas cook off. Seldom are we able to replicate the magic of the lesson witnessed but I have noticed that each year we improve in our preparation and execution. However, the participation, fun and engaging banter always enhances the experience we share together.
Think of formal training as the cornerstone of your personal growth architecture. It’s like a focused retreat from the daily grind where you immerse yourself in new concepts and skills. This structured environment is akin to a nurturing greenhouse where your professional capabilities are cultivated under expert guidance. Here, in these sessions, you’re not just acquiring skills; you’re undergoing a transformative experience that shapes your thinking, boosts your confidence, and refines your approach to challenges.
As you reflect on your victories and lessons in 2023 you should also be motivated to move forward with a roadmap of personal development in 2024. In Craig Groeschel’s book “The Power to Change” he states that defining your win is where you begin.
