Do you know how to develop yourself?

What does owning your own development mean?

At andpartnership: Leadership Consultants & Change Experts we work with individuals, teams and organisations in enabling them to have ownership of personal development and #accountabilty.

By taking control of your development you are building a positive proactive that people around you notice. This puts you in a position to achieve your goals whether they are a higher salary, less hours, more flexibility, or a promotion.

But before you do anything its vital your understand what personal development is and why it is important to you.

There are are the five areas of personal growth

  • Spiritual growth: connecting with yourself on a holistic level, developing as a person and finding inner peace

  • Emotional growth: Focuses the development of your mind, such as the way you think, learn and your mindset

  • Social growth: improving your communication skills, how you engage with others around you

  • Physical growth: involves taking care of your body and using it in productive ways. Your physical condition affects all other areas of personal growth and development, as a healthy body facilitates effective brain functioning.

  • Mental growth: focusing on the development of your mind, such as the way you think and learn.

It's about considering where growth will benefit you in your life the most. When it comes to personal development, its about being fully in tune with what are your areas that need develop 'what you need' But also what you want, these are aspirations, dreams and pursuing your personal passions.

First step is identifying your areas of focus and then exploring options.

At this point many individuals benefit from identifying a #Coach or #Mentor to support them in unlocking possibilities and enabling individuals to bring their learning to life.

Why is it important to own your own development?

By carrying out your own learning and development, you'll not only be improving your morale, confidence, and knowledge, you could also be improving your career prospects – whether it's to gain a promotion, new job, or a career change.
