PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
 

Personal and professional development programs are most effective when they are not mutually exclusive.
 

Professional development provides the skills needed to maximize performance in your current role and helps you acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for career advancement. Effective programs also includes an element of personal development.

Personal development is crucial to becoming a better leader, employee, mentor, colleague, family-member, or friend.

When combined, personal and professional development equip you with the skills you need to accomplish desired results --
both in and out of the workplace.

A recent Carnegie Foundation study found that career success is linked to 15% of one's technical skills and knowledge, while an overwhelming 85% is attributed to soft skills.

 

Most companies spend 95% of their time and budget offering technical skills training while investing a mere 5% on interpersonal skills - the very ones proven to make the most significant impact on
both the individual's and the organization's success.

COACHES

As Bill Gates is quoted as saying, "Everyone needs a coach. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a basketball player, a tennis player, a gymnast or a bridge player. We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve."

 

Coaches encourage and promote solution-focused thinking, and help individuals identify priorities for growth and development and implement strategies for change.

 

Working with a coach is proven to increase confidence and drive success. Whether you choose to participate in one-on-one or group coaching, Alpstra has a bench of coaches ready to help.
