I have noticed in my coaching sessions that as people move up the career ladder, they are often more focused on the benefits of developing others, rather than developing themselves. They want to be great leaders, but often do not spend the time to review their own personal development and to understand what is needed to take them from good to great.
However, working on your own personal development can contribute significantly to overall performance and productivity.
Taking the time to fully understand yourself, your aims, your strengths and weaknesses – are all key to continuous personal development and should be worked on alongside other learning and development activities.
Are you spending enough time on your own personal development?
