Deliberate Practice

Now THIS is what Deliberate Practice looks like!

Last night, the Fire Department used the house next door (which will be demolished on Wednesday) as a training ground.

It was pretty exciting to watch the smoke and fire streaming out of the windows and to see the firefighters climbing the roof and cutting holes in it.

Alas, they didn't burn the house completely to the ground, much to my daughter's chagrin.

Fun and exciting that is, until one of the firefighters had smoke or heat exhaustion. He seemed fine, but it definitely changed the tone of the whole event.

Preparing for the real deal means preparing at all levels.

So how can you set up training in your workplace with this level of deliberate practice?
