To investigate exactly what it takes for professionals to become masters of their craft, Sales and marketing firm The Tailored Group have been reviewing the theory of 10,000 hours to expertise.
As The Tailored Group look to offer up and coming entrepreneurs the opportunity to work with an experienced sales and marketing firm while having the chance to pursue personal and professional goals, the company run regular on-site workshops. This week The Tailored Group focused on the 10,000 hours rule. The 10,000-hour rule, which was invented by Malcolm Gladwell who stated that ‘Researchers have settled on what they believe is the magic number for true expertise: 10,000 hours.’ The theory works on the notion that anyone can become an expert in anything if they practice for at least 10,000 hours. As psychologists have challenged this theory they have used different controllable including natural talent, it was at first thought that innate ability would halve the time needed, but in no study, was this confirmed.
The firm has recently been focusing on ensuring all their staff and contractors understand that nothing beats work ethic. By developing a hard-working culture, the firm is looking to accelerate their growth within the industry. They know in life there are no shortcuts to success and have built a strong reputation on their ability to deliver results. By refusing to accept nothing short of 100% commitment from their workforce, the company has been able to become pioneers in the industry and breaking records within the outsourcing world.
Concluding the workshop, the firm expressed a strong opinion that repetition is the mother of all skill and that practice makes perfect. They have developed a working structure which allows everyone to learn by doing. Skills-based coaching complements product training workshops, and their unique training room allows scenarios to be practiced gaining confidence in delivery. Since opening up, the firm has experienced large-scale growth and are confident their accelerated pace can be attributed to their commitment to achieving consistent high-level work ethic.
