Develop Your Personal, Professional, and Leadership Skills! Increased personal productivity and professional performance. You might be new or have spent years in the workforce. You might be growing your leadership skills, starting a business, the owner of a small to mid-size company, or a corporate executive. Developing your performance skills will benefit you and support you to enjoy greater results in life and work!
Your commitment to the learning process through coaching allows you to have personalized conversations specific to you. You get to bring to coaching the things that are happening for you in your work and life to assess what is working and where you would like to upgrade what you are doing or the results you are getting. We call it “insanity” to do the same thing but expect different results. So a mature and wise professional is able to step back, open up and get vulnerable, in the safe coaching space to know that it is 100% for their growth and that this learning will benefit them and ripple out to all they interact with.
There are two types of assessments that are great to take.
The first are assessments to measure how you are doing, find gaps and areas for growth. They help us to identify where we are at and then based on our results we can create a plan for our growth and development. They are often very useful to retake after you have been working your plan for 3 months to measure your progress and make sure the steps you are taking are creating the change you want in your life and work.
The second are “personality” or ”style” type assessments. These assessments are NOT just TELLING us who we are, putting ourselves in a box, surrendering our definition of yourself to assessments or a useless internet test that is interesting but meaningless. Assessments, used well, are an inductive process to help us better understand ourselves, our thoughts, patterns and behaviors. Working with a variety of assessments helps to expedite the process of understanding the uniqueness of you. We are like diamonds, each individual and different, each with different cuts and angles that make up who we are. Assessments can be used to help in career selection, career advancement and really developing your authentic style. This is important as a leader to KNOW THYSELF, as our weaknesses can be blind spots and our leadership blind spots impact the team and our ability to lead well and get the best results possible.
