Focus on Professional Growth

Create an individual development plan to become a stronger leader and colleague. Pick one quality about yourself that you would like to change, and then answer the following questions:

  • If I improve [area you want to strengthen], how will I benefit? Figure out what’s in it for you. If you won’t benefit in some way, you aren’t likely to commit to the change. Example: If I improve how I show my appreciation, I will improve my relationships.
  • How will others benefit? Describe how the change will positively affect your colleagues, employees, boss, team and organization. Example: My employees will know that I appreciate them, and that will boost their morale. They’ll be happier and more productive, and that will decrease turnover.
  • How will changing this behavior lead me to reach my professional and personal goals? Example: I’ll have a happier, more productive team, which increases our chances of hitting our targets. Showing my family and friends my appreciation will strengthen those relationships.
  • What will happen if I don’t change? Example: I could lose valuable employees. That turnover could kill our productivity and our chances of hitting our goals.
  • What will be the cost of changing this behavior? Will you have to give up something? How much time will it take? Example: It takes only minutes a day to recognize someone’s hard work.
