#EQ #PDP Do you dread crafting your annual professional development plan? For many, this is a check the box exercise.
Your organization or boss doesn’t take professional development seriously.
You have never given yourself the gift of self reflection and asked yourself the right questions about what you want to strive for.
You lack belief in yourself and you are afraid to go after the things that are important to you.
PDPs are directly related to your use of emotional intelligence skills. How?
When you are considering your own professional development, you are drawing upon the EQ skills of self awareness, self regard, self actualization, and assertiveness.
These EQ skills allow you to reflect, have confidence to pursue goals that are meaningful, and communicate to your boss regarding what you need to be successful.
A great way to start understanding yourself better is to read the book What Motivates Me. Also, find a mentor to help you think bigger.
