Now that it is 2016, you have probably set business goals for the year ahead: launch the new training program or increase efficiency. You may even have set personal New Year’s resolutions, like eating healthier, getting organized or finally learning a second language.
But have you given any thought to your own professional development? Improving yourself at work past meeting your specific performance goals – is too often left to the routine box-checking of annual reviews. To successfully move to the next level, we need to ask ourselves: How can I ensure I’m more valuable at the end of the year than I was at the beginning?
Professional development takes three key forms: learning, connecting, and creating. Depending on your goals for the year, you may want to prioritize one more than the others.
If you’re seriously ready to make 2016 your best year yet, don’t forget about your own professional development.
Join ATD of New Orleans on January 20th, for a hands-on session where you will have the opportunity to set your professional development goals and create a plan for achieving those goals over the course of the year.
During this session we are encouraging participants to pair up with an accountability partner, to check on your progress throughout the year!
Don’t miss this opportunity to make this year your best year yet! Or like we said in our board meeting last night, the year of the unicorn!
You can't get water from an empty well.
