What Are The Mastery Practices?


Powerful Mental Techniques to Learn Skills — Faster


These are the mental methods allowing you to more quickly reach skill masteryEach is worth learning separately. Together, reduce time wasted and money lost in the practice phase of the skill building process. 

There are five mastery practices:

    • Reflection, 
    • Visualization, 
    • Meditation, 
    • Self-Talk. 
    • Mindfulness 

Why Learn The Mastery Practices?

It Works. Mental rehearsal has long be a used in sports psychology. 

It's The Only Way To Build Mental Skills. This is the case for motor skills and is likely to be true with pure mental skills such as listening.  

It Reduces Practice Time. Mastery Practices take you from novice to mastery in less time — they function like catalysts.

It Compliments Physical Practice. The brain does not distinguish between mental and physical practice. 

Separately, these are useful. Together, they're down right powerful.

Who Can Benefit




Athletes

You can't be world class unless you know — really know — how to use the mind to practice. It's as simple, and as complex, as that. 

Students

Most university degrees are way too much theory and not enough practice. Learning skills are better done with coaching outside the classroom.


Coaches

General coaching skills are valuable. They can be even more valuable if one knows how to use the mastery practices.

Managers

You have to learn what the competition (other managers) don't know to stand out. 

Hi Potentials

The best companies identify their high potentials. And one-way to get on that list is to keep learning. It makes you adaptable and more promotable.

Executives

Sure, in an 80-hour work week there is not much time available. But that doesn't mean one should give up on learning something new.

    “People Don't Learn From Experience” — J. Edward Deming

     

    It's true, most people DON'T LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE and they practice a skill, but SHOW NO IMPROVEMENT OR SLOW IMPROVEMENT. The reason why? They don't use reflection. Something very powerful but rarely taught. 

    What is Reflection?

    1. The mental process that allow you to monitor your behavior to determine what's working and what's not (see story below).

    2. The way we monitor practice to keep improving it.

    3. A learned process accelerating the drive to mastery.

    4. A way to become conscious of automatic behaviors.

    Learning reflection in this online course you will help you to:

    • No make the same mistake over and over again,
    • Optimize important behaviors, and
    • Allow smarter practice,

    Bottom line: Reflection is a learnable method to determine what's working and what's not. It's a way of not doing the same thing, the same way; but always expect better results (The classic definition of managerial insanity).

    A Personal Story On The Importance of Reflection

    To my lasting regret, understanding of reflection came much too late in life. What happened was this.

    When I was 52 years old, I accidentally learned about reflection. I happened to be sitting in a lecture at Korea University in Seoul. The course delved into world religions and this particular lecture dealt with Buddhism.

    The professor mentioned that Buddhism had a long tradition of learning through reflection. This aroused me from my normal state of lethargic mindlessness and I asked the professor, “What is reflection exactly?”

    She replied that it was a mental process where you periodically step back and think about an experience and then figure out what went well and what could have gone better. And then she said, “The school of life teaches; but only if you are willing to reflect on experience.”

    Here I was, a creature of the university. Much of my life was spent in a library with my nose in the textbook or in a state of confusion reading scholarly research journals. And yet, I had never been exposed to one of the most valuable tools of learning ever.  — Murray Johannsen, Course Developer & Instructor
