NYU's Office of Talent, Learning, and Organizational Development offers professional development programs and resources to help you succeed in your role and advance in your career. We also provide customized services and training that address specific needs of schools and units.
Mindset, Knowledge, and Skills
Programs address the three interlocking components of professional growth at NYU – mindset, knowledge, and skills:
- the mindset that honors NYU values and fosters growth
- the knowledge you are expected to master in your role
- the skills that enable you to perform your responsibilities effectively
In-person workshops include helpful frameworks and research findings, time for reflection, group and peer discussions, skill practice, and action planning.
Most people develop new skills through a combination of on-the-job learning, interactions with others, and formal training. We recommend using the 70-20-10 formula when planning your development:
70% On-the-Job Experiences
Consider taking on challenging assignments, participating on project teams, or shadowing a colleague.
20% – Interactions with Others
Seek out coaching, mentoring, and ongoing feedback from your supervisor, clients, and coworkers.
