Your Personal and Professional Development Plan

 

Your Personal and Professional Development Plan (PPDP) should be a living document. As you progress through the programme, you will document important moments in your transformational journey and record important insights, accomplishments and completed goals. In the final weeks of Learning and Leading in a Dynamic Era, you will reflect on your values, principles and goals, create an action plan to achieve these goals, and plan for your future as a leader; these are the goals of your PPDP.

At the same time, you should not feel bound by the constraints of only looking forward. As you will discover in Learning and Leading in a Dynamic Era, great benefits can be derived from reflecting on the past, as well as on the present and the future. Accordingly, you will return to your PPDP throughout this programme, stopping in each module to re-evaluate goals and action plans so that they accurately reflect your development as a leader and so that you can create realistic timelines and set yourself up for success rather than disappointment. If it takes you more or less time than you originally predicted in order to accomplish a goal or meet a milestone, that’s simply a cause for an adjustment. The iterative process of revising, reflecting and adjusting is precisely what makes your PPDP a living document.

In each module, there will be new knowledge and new perspectives that you were not aware of before. You will integrate that into your PPDP. You will address questions such as the following:

  • What am I learning in this module that is helping me to shape what I already know and what I need to know?
  • What other managerial and knowledge gaps has this module revealed?
  • How has it helped me to create new goals?
  • How will I integrate content from this module into the professional aspect of my PPDP?

 

For this module, you will work on your PPDP in three phases. In Unit 5, you will complete Phase 1, Values, Principles, and Goals, and Phase 2, Your Action Plan, and submit this document for feedback from your Instructor. You will complete Phase 3, Reflecting on Your PPDP, in Unit 6, and submit the completed PPDP as part of your Final Project for grading.

 

 

 

Phase 1: Values, Principles and Goals

 

Note: For this section of the PPDP, you can use the values, principles and goals you created in your Unit 4 Shared Activity 2 and Individual Assignment 1.

Goal # 1

Statement of your personal value

 

 

What principle emanates from this value?

 

 

What goal did you derive from this value?

 

 

Goal # 2

Statement of your personal value

 

 

What principle emanates from this value?

 

 

What goal did you derive from this value?

 

 

Goal # 3

Statement of your personal value

 

 

What principle emanates from this value?

 

 

What goal did you derive from this value?

 

 

 

Phase 2: Your Action Plan

 

For this section of the PPDP, you should create action plans which you will utilise to achieve each of the three goals listed above. You will first submit this document to your Instructor for feedback in Unit 5. For the Unit 5 submission, be sure to fill in the information for Phase 1 as well as your action plans for Phase 2. Phase 3 will be completed in Unit 6.

You can type your goals, objectives, milestones and steps directly into the white boxes below. If you are confused about the different components of your action plan, please refer to this unit’s media presentation and the example action plan in the week’s learning resources. Also, note that this table is intended as a guide but is flexible in order to best meet your needs. If, for example, you need to meet three milestones to accomplish an objective rather than two, feel free to add an extra row to the table. Similarly, you may need only two objectives for a particular goal rather than three. Add and delete rows as necessary until this action plan is customised to your particular goals.

Note: You can delete the text in the boxes below and replace it with the information described
