Supporting personal development Resources: Your organisation You
Career development Career exploration : tools, diagnostics, self assessment Career goal – setting: view of opportunities in the sector. Career strategies & action planning: information & support Career feedback: honest appraisal

Activity 2.1 List up to five tasks to which you can give your attention if and when an unexpected time-slot occurs. Clearly these should not be urgent or important tasks, but the things we all say “I’d like to get around to when I have the time”
Prioritising tasks Urgent and Important: key task with fast approaching deadline Important but not Urgent: key task closely related to important objective Urgent but not important: A task which has a fast approaching deadline Neither important nor Urgent: not closely related to high – level objective, does not have fast approaching deadline
Time- Wasters List three activities that most often waste your time How can you control this time-waster? Delegating tasks:seven- stage process
How to delegate Define the task Set targets and standards Choose the right person Fully brief your chosen person Provide the resources Monitor progress, give feedback Trust and let go!
Business Case framework: Problem/issue/opportunity Analysis of the current situation Solution to the problem/issue/opportunity Successful outcome/satisfaction This is useful for pulling together a summary/ justifying resources for PDP
Implementing the plan Education and training Coaching Mentoring Peer relationships Action learning Learning contracts Open or distance learning
What is a learning contract? A formal document that sets out the commitment by the learner to work towards achieving a specified learning goal or objective. It also focuses on how the learning may be achieved. It’s a proactive approach to learning and helps with the implementation of a development plan as the contract is agreed with the line manager, coach or mentor.
Learning Contract An overall development goal Specific objectives in terms of skill or knowledge Activities to be undertaken to achieve the objectives Resources required Methods of assessment of learning
REVIEW CONSIDER A RECENT EXPERIENCE, GOOD OR BAD, PLANNED OR UNPLANNED THAT YOU HAD DURING THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS WHAT CONCLUSIONS CAN YOU DRAW FROM THIS? WHAT LESSONS WERE LEARNED? HOW WOULD YOU PLAN TO DO SOMETHING BETTER OR DIFFERENTLY NEXT TIME IN THE LIGHT OF THIS CONCLUSION?
