What is personal development?

Personal 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 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

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.

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”.
