Seventy percent of an individual's greatest learning moments come from experiences or on-the-job learning. Examples include:

  • Stretch/challenging assignments
  • Special projects
  • Volunteer/community service
  • Rotational assignments

20 Percent: Engagement

Twenty percent of an individual's greatest learning comes from engagement through mentoring and networking. Examples include:

  • Peer-to-peer and formal networking
  • Community of practices
  • Career/performance discussions
