Helping People Grow from Novice to Expert
One of the key tenets of the work here at 2Time Labs is that learners / coachees are not all made equal.
In other words, they vary from each other in important ways. A major factor is their skill in different behaviors.
I just recently released the second edition of Perfect Time-Based Productivity and once again, the following idea is core: adults have wildly different practices for managing time demands. (This fact is documented here.) And it's not by accident...we are all self-taught.
In keeping with this philosophy, I came across a great article - When Do Novices Become Experts?
The author, David Didau, reinforces the idea that it's folly to teach, coach or develop content for the Novice in the same way as the Expert. Take a look at the chart he has put together - it will change the way you think about helping clients improve their time-based productivity.
