Personal Development

Invest in your personal and career development

Welcome to our personal and career development resources to help you make better work and life choices. Here you’ll find a range of tools, tips and techniques to help you plan, set and achieve your development goals.

Successful managers invest in personal and career development. They achieve their goals by lifelong commitment to personal growth and professional development. Some might argue that creating your own personal development strategy is the most important investment you can make. So, as with any investment decisions don’t forget to factor in your own development and think about the value it adds.

Our personal development knowledge hub contains a growing range of material to help you plan, set and achieve your personal development goals. This section contains some excellent personal and career development resources – from tips and stories to career change advice and key success factors. Use it to think about:

  • Effective work-life balance and wellness.
  • Techniques for getting better at what you do.
  • How to develop your strengths.
  • Finding ways to do more of what you want to do.
  • What you need to know, and what skills you need to practice, to develop your career.
  • Developing your communication and interpersonal skills.
  • How to deal with job disappointment or loss.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain

I am designing a new Management Development programme for my company and your Goal Setting guide has really helped.

I like the way you introduced material I haven’t seen before (SHARP action) & the tools to apply the learning. The price represents really good value for money and I will be checking out more of your material over the coming months.
