Self development, or personal development, is about developing your own skills and knowledge so that you are continuously learning and developing yourself. If you are to be committed to your self development you need to take ownership of it by following the guidelines below:
• you become a learner • you take responsibility for your own learning • you establish your own needs for your development for
personal growth and improved work performance • you use a range of flexible learning methods, formal and
informal, as methods of self development (learning is not always about ‘going on a training course’)
• you learn how you learn best and use this information as you commit to your own continuous self development.
