Referring to his efforts with growth and development, my Client insisted we must consider that development does not occur without practice.
As I thought about this, I realized that there is Development and there is Performance. And that Practice is the link between the two. Before considering practice, it is important to consider the two components of development and performance.
In the model of What + How = Outcome, we could say that development and performance are the what and outcome respectively.
Development is an event that must be planned. Hence what we know in the organizational environment as a ‘Development Plan.’ The development plan must be built around what we specifically desire to accomplish – and in the process – consider why these particular accomplishments are important to us and the organization.
Performance is an outcome that is manifested by both the planned development and the learning journey. Performance requires us to be intentional about both plan and process. The performance outcome begins with how we visualize the specific performance.
So development is an event that must be planned and performance is an outcome of this plan, and your intentional Practice.
