More about Personal Development, Time, Efficiency & Stress Management

What does personal development mean?

Personal Development CoursesPersonal development is the process of self-development and also the development of others. At the level of the individual, personal development includes goals, plans or actions oriented towards one or more of the following aims:

  • improved time management
  • improved stress management
  • improved personal efficiency
  • improved confidence
  • improved assertiveness
  • improved creativity
  • improved understanding of career change
  • fulfilling aspirations

Any sort of development requires a framework to establish whether change has actually occurred or not. In the case of personal development, individuals often function as their own primary judge of improvement.

Validation of objective improvement, however, requires assessment using standard criteria. Such framework for personal development may include goals or benchmarks that define the end-points, strategies or plans for reaching goals and a feedback system to provide information on changes.

With so much emphasis on the professional element of development, it's important to remember that training in more personal aspects of development, also sometimes called soft-skills, will also help businesses be more effective if their employees are as efficient and happy as they can be.

Improving Personal Effectiveness

Personal Efficiency CoursesPersonal effectiveness is a combination of factors that impact each other. Personal Development incorporates many aspects of people's professional lives, and aims to make them better. Personal effectiveness courses are usually designed to develop key skills and techniques needed to build personal impact, influence and effectiveness in dealings with themselves, their workloads and with others. Personal effectiveness courses seek to address the following objectives:

  • Analyse current effectiveness in terms of time and priority management
  • Recognise factors that contribute towards building personal profile and impact
  • Develop personal action plans to enhance personal effectiveness at work
  • Identify appropriate situations and techniques for assertive communication
  • Improve ability to deal with “difficult” people and conflict situations
  • Evaluate the most appropriate influencing styles to achieve positive results

The opportunities personal development can present

The most common elements of personal development training relate to becoming more efficient and effective with time and priorities. Personal development courses can help people learn to “say no”, can help improve expectation management or help control emotions.

Personal Development courses also help people build their confidence and enable them to deal with “difficult” people in awkward situations. Gaining an understanding of ways to persuade and influence others in order to achieve results is often one of the main aims of Personal Development training.

Personal Development can also help those who wish to raise their own personal profile and impact. Personal Development is a broad and complex topic, often referred to in some instances as “self-help”.

Assertiveness Training

Assertiveness is crucially linked to both confidence and self-esteem. Understanding this connection by taking an assertiveness course will help you develop the right techniques to use assertiveness to establish successful working relationships.

In addition, while you will gain tools and techniques to both boost your confidence and build your self-esteem, you will also learn how to handle difficult situations and difficult people both confidently and assertively.

Assertiveness training gives delegates the right tools to effectively and positively deal with criticism, confrontation, anger and negativity.

Confidence Building Training

Confidence CoursesOne of the keys to improving self-confidence is understanding and learning how to maintain a positive outlook in situations where the consequences may be both bad and good, then also managing to overcome and move on effectively.

Improving confidence involves believing that you can achieve your goals and aims, without worrying too much about the overall outcome. By believing your ability to succeed, you become more assured of yourself and better able support others.

Confidence building training will reduce the worry you feel about issues at work, enable a better focus towards achievable/attainable results and then to successfully achieve your goals. Improving confidence will ultimately make you happier in both business and personal life.

Confidence building courses often identify the best approach to use when voicing ideas and opinions to colleagues and especially senior managers, and typically cover the following topics:

  • Moving from negative to positive ways of thinking (building self-esteem)
  • Are you saying “yes” when you should be saying “no” or vice-versa?
  • The art of persuasion
  • Understanding how self-esteem affects confidence and influences behaviour – using assertive language
  • Identifying ways of building self-esteem and developing confidence

Stress Management Courses

Stress Management CoursesTake charge in order to help manage stress. Take control of your emotions, your schedule, your environment, and the way you deal with problems.

Successful stress management begins with identifying the sources of stress in your life and learning how to recognise the signs of oncoming stress. While stress’ true sources aren’t always obvious and you can easily overlook your own stress, it is often the case that business professionals become stressed due to procrastination, rather than the actual job demands. Procrastination can then often lead to deadline stress.

Stress management courses enable participants to understand and state what their stress at work is, to identify potential sources of pressure and to find out what generates stress levels. Stress management training also enables delegates to understand the link between time pressures and stress, as well as the relationship between workload and stress, and to identify strategies for gaining and maintaining a balanced workload.

Stress Management Courses

Time Management Courses

Time management is closely related to stress management and is one of the primary elements of personal development. Time management refers to the range of tools, skills and techniques used in order to manage time when accomplishing specific tasks, projects and goals.

Improving your time management skills enable you to increase your efficiency, increase productivity and become less stressed. Time management courses help delegates achieve more effective results in less time. Much of this relates to delegates taking greater control of their daily activities, becoming more goal focussed, being more effective with their time, overcoming stress and incorporating proven techniques for mastering time.
