9780566082641: Planning and Organizing Personal and Professional Development

Chris Sangster’s book is a practical, step-by-step guide to personal and professional development that covers the strategy, techniques and philosophy behind the process. Lifelong learning, the shift from trainer-centred delivery to learner-centred development and the opportunities provided by new technologies, place considerable onus on individuals to take responsibility for their own learning. This guide will help trainers and facilitators to enable learners to do just that. There are, at least, three different participants involved in any meaningful and sustainable process of personal development at work - the learner, his or her line manager and mentor(s), and the training (or development support) function. Chris Sangster provides a route map for each of these three roles. He offers a simple, compelling triangular model to illustrate the interaction of each and places particular emphasis on ’learning outcomes’ - as opposed to inputs, focusing attention and objective measurement on learning that manifests itself through application, achievement and changes in behaviour. Whether you are looking for a complete and holistic process for developing your people or a highly readable guide to unravelling the myths of development - such as the confusion between personal and professional development - this book has it all.

Review:

'It is an extremely thorough book' Julie Hay, Chief Executive of training consultancy AD International on TrainingZONE website, November 2000 'It is an extremely thorough book ... The thoroughness will be very reassuring to anyone considering implementing such an approach within an organization.' Personal and Professional Development, January 2001 'This 174-page publication is a step-by-step guide in the truest sense in that it really is a thorough, systematic, complete coverage of the area of development, both personal and professional. It covers the strategy, techniques and philosophy behind the process and focuses on lifelong learning together with a shift towards a learner-centred approach ... The text contains valuable methodologies relating to mapping your development path, charting progress and many other topics. Each provides a super trainer's guide to the area.' Training Journal, June 2001 'This is an excellent book and will be of use to learners, mentors and trainers who are involved with continuing professional (and personal) development.' Economic Outlook and Business Review
