Professional Development Best Practices

This tool compares the relative value of three different types of professional development. The table below looks at the relative impact of training, coaching, and on-the-job experience in developing an individual’s professional leadership and management skills.

Based on research from the Center for Creative Leadership, on-the-job leadership has had a more dramatic impact on an individual’s development than other types of training and coaching. While training skill has a role to play, its limitations need to be taken into consideration when charting an individual’s development pathway.
