How to... have conversations about development
Understanding Personal Development
Personal Development includes a range of activities that improve awareness, develop talents and build skills that enhance an individual within the workplace. Development includes not just technical and professional development, but key attitudes and behaviours required for success alongside commercial and interpersonal skills.
Things to consider
There is so much development available. It helps to identify what this development will help you achieve
Focussing on strengths works with natural skills, inclinations and talents that exist and are useful
