The 10-60-90 Principle

The 10-60-90 Principle

The “10-60-90” principle helps people reach their greatest potential in the least amount of time. It goes like this: when you tell an adult how to do something, 10 per cent of what you say will be remembered. If you show an adult how to do something, 60 per cent of what you show will be remembered. If you do something with that same person, 90 per cent or more will be remembered.

There are three steps to make this statement extremely effective as a mentoring tool.

  1. Make your mentee successful
  2. Show them the success
  3. Make sure they understand why they’re successful
