Developing Yourself

To develop ourselves, we need first to know where we are now, where we want to go and what we need to do to achieve our goal. This workshop helps provide this insight by examining our purpose, values and vision and their effect on our development



Developing ourselves in a meaningful and effective way, requires us to know where we should be concentrating our efforts.  To know that, we need to understand where we are now, where we want to be in the future and what might be stopping us achieving our goal. This requires a level of personal insight. 

For this programme, we have used the Emotional Intelligence framework to help us provide that insight.  The framework consists of four elements:

  • Self-Awareness – being effective at picking up what is going on inside you
  • Self-Management – taking appropriate actions to manage yourself
  • Awareness of Others – being effective in picking up what is going on for other people
  • Relationship Management – taking appropriate action to manage others.

Associated beliefs, attitudes and behaviours are examined using a five-step approach:

  • Being proactive
  • Having a personal purpose, values and vision
  • Increasing self-awareness through feedback and disclosure
  • Developing awareness of others
  • Building positive relationships with others.


The aims of this one-day workshop are:

  • To familiarise participants with a range of effective approaches to managing their self-development
  • To encourage participants to develop and implement an action plan focused on their personal development.
