As we approach the end of an enormous year, it is a great time to review your personal professional development plan. Such as the old saying goes, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.
A personal professional development plan can come in many different forms and will provide a framework to support you identify the areas of your strengths and weaknesses, and come up with action points to help for your improvement.
Taking a moment at the end of the year, quarter, month, to reflect on the past period can help you use the benefit of hindsight. It gives you a chance to take a snapshot of where you are standing at the time based on where you want to be standing. This then allows you to reset the plan. Has the goal post changed, and is your target now higher/lower, or somewhere completely different? Taking into account what you have learnt through the perspective of hindsight, will you adjust your future plan differently?
Throughout work and life we are always learning, constantly. Development is a progressive process in everybody’s life. When you create your personal professional development plan, it can provide you with that time for self-reflection. It should actually be an open door for you to inspect what are the opportunities you can work on that are really going to help you succeed and really do something about it.
