In this 1/2 day workshop you will learn how to build a Individual Development Plan.
The Individual Development Plan (IDP) is a tool to organize and target your professional and personal development. Its primary purpose is to help you reach short- and long-term career goals, as well as strengthen current job performance by providing a structured approach. IDPs are beneficial in aligning learning activities to specific competencies, such as the UC Core Competencies, or with the mission, goals and objectives of an organization. With goal setting at its heart, a professional development plan organizes your ideas into a cohesive plan that starts with short-term goals and moves to mid-range and long-term goals. You then link what you want to achieve, or the competencies you want to develop, with the activities that will help you get there.
The process of making an effective IDP first involves each employee asking himself the following questions:
What direction is my organization going and what will the organization need from its employees in the future?
What are my goals over the next five years?
What are my greatest strengths and how can I build on them more effectively?
Do I have any serious weaknesses that make it difficult to do my job or will prevent me from reaching my goals?
