This session was recently delivered to The Professional Marketers Forum in Nottingham. Here’s what they had to say:
“At the first of the 2015 series of Forums in the East Midlands, Deborah Labbate lead an interactive session which involved analysing our current positions, both professionally and personally, and devising a plan for future development. The Forum was hosted by Baker Tilly in Nottingham.
Using a variety of techniques, the group was encouraged to look at their ‘whole selves’ and note their individual successes from 2014 to identify potential pitfalls that could be avoided in future self-development plans.
With bucket lists for both our professional and personal achievements, we developed a vision for 2015 and identified the actions, resources and support mechanisms needed to make a plan and achieve the vision. We also considered potential distractions that could hinder achieving our goals. Deborah explained that the key is understanding these distractions and working out how to manage them. Accountability is usually the most effective method.
Part of the planning process included a useful time management exercise to identify windows of opportunity to focus on the actions needed to achieve our top three goals. This technique forces you to be realistic about when personal development can happen and your overall vision achieved.” – Read more here.
