"Continuous improvement" through deliberate practice was Dr. Jim Dittmar's topic at the March 16, 2017 Leaders Serving Beaver County “Leader’s Workshop” based on chapter 6 of Forged in Steel: The Seven Time-Tested Leadership Principles Practiced By the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In his comments, Dittmar discussed why the "process" of practice is so important and what kind of change that can produce. He also delved into how leaders can enhance the process of obtaining caidid feedback on their own performance, and the value of having one's very own "eye in the sky" and huddle to ensure optimal results.

Forged in Steel is a widely praised analysis of the Steelers' way. It's the first book to analyze organizational leadership values through the prism of a six-time Super Bowl winning National Football League franchise and the enduring values of Judeo-Christian faith.
