I strongly be­lieve that many pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties are too gen­eral to be of much help to any­one. The very na­ture of a class­room or a cor­po­rate re­treat means speak­ing to a group with vary­ing lev­els of sub­ject knowl­edge, rather than the in­di­vid­ual.

Peo­ple can quickly be­come unin­spired when they’re be­ing taught some­thing they al­ready know and don’t ac­tu­ally need help with. De­tailed, team-spe­cific pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, while more time-in­ten­sive, is gen­er­ally far more ef­fec­tive.
