We at Leads Interactive Solutions Pvt Ltd also provide Career counseling and engage the staff in Personal Development Plans and also Professional Development Plans which consists of education, observation and mentoring that can help to enhance the employees in a workplace. It might include training sessions, spending time with a mentor to observe how others handle challenges or mentoring someone else who might be new to the field. We believe that everyone can benefit from the development of professional skills.
How the employee chooses to tackle his/her professional development depends on their personal career goals and preferred style of learning.
May be someone want to deepen their knowledge in a specific area to increase their earning potential or perhaps the company is quickly evolving and the staff need to stay up to date with the latest developments or maybe an employee is interested in taking their career in a different direction within the company and will need to learn and gain new skill sets.
In a company, the level of experience and position within a company should also factor into your professional development plan, as managers often need to tackle their professional development in a different way than employees would.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR STAFF:
As an employee of the company, the individual’s professional development will focus on setting personal professional goals and making the most of the training provided by the company to good use. Learning more about the company’s goals and objectives may also be a part of your professional development, especially if an individual intend to remain with the same company and work your way up the ranks.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR LINE MANAGERS:
Unlike the staff or the employees, even the managers should also set personal & professional goals and work towards achieving them, but in addition to this, they also should promote the development of staff and need to look for the ways to improvise their team’s skills.
A manager is as good as those who are employed by him or her. So offering opportunities for employees to improve is the key to the organizational success.
Another different approach for the development for managers are the acquisition of skills related to managing, such as improvising communication, teamwork and conflict management abilities. It is also helpful for the entire team to attend personality assessment activities, as this allows both managers and staff to learn about dynamics of the group
Investing time and money in professional development is the best way to ensure that you will continue to grow and move forward in your career. But how exactly should you go about it?
We at Leads Interactive Solutions Pvt Ltd do conduct several workshops for the benefit of our employees, we hire third party vendors to deliver sessions on Career Counseling, Personal Development Plan and the company is willing to support the staff in their Professional Development.
We provide the opportunities for the professional development as a way of improving employee retention, and the employees can take advantage of these programs and can help continue to grow professionally.
Not all companies will see the benefit of investing in professional development opportunities for employees, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it by yourself. If the company doesn’t provide professional development, employees can do it on their own time. Try to find low-cost or free ways to learn new things, such as taking free online courses or finding a mentor in the company if there’s no formal mentor program.
Think of a successful individual you know, admire and would like to learn from; it doesn’t have to be someone within your company, but it certainly makes it easier if it is. Find out if he/she would be willing to have you shadow them for a few hours a week in order to learn from their experience.
ATTEND CONFERENCES AND WORKSHOPS:
Attending Conferences or Workshops will give the employee a chance to learn about the latest developments in the relevant field and they need to keep their skills and knowledge up to date. It can also be a great way to meet and exchange ideas with other professionals in the company.
If the employees are not sure what sort of workshops or conferences would be worth their time and money, they need to talk to their peers and colleagues or they need to take a look at some of their past performance reviews to see if there are any specific areas you’d like to improve in.
Even if the employer are not willing or able to cover the cost of attending such events, the employee may still be able to convince them that it’s worthwhile for you to attend on company time by showing them how it will help you develop your skills and perform your duties more effectively.
