Personal Development Plan

Development is a lifelong of nurturing, shaping and improving an

individual's skills, knowledge and interests to ensure my maximum

effectiveness and adaptability, and to minimize the obsolescence of my

skills and my chances of redundancy. It does not necessarily imply

upward movement; rather, it is about enabling individuals to improve

and use my full potential at each career stage. (Definition of

personal development planning from class material)

The personal development plan for me is a chance to know my self

better, I can realize what I want to achieve or where I want to go in

the plan, in the short- or long-term, and also identifying the need

for skills, knowledge or competence. It also helps me to define the

appropriate development to meet those perceived needs. In this report,

I am going to focusing on what my strengths are and where my

weaknesses are, also how to use my strengths in the field I will work

into in the future, and how to develop my weaknesses to be my

strengths as well.


Evaluation is the key stage to the self-development cycle because it

enables me to discover whether that development activity was

worthwhile, applicable, and if and how my skills or working behaviour

as a result. (Kolb argued 1984 -76)
