This is the book for anyone who embraces growth and learning as an individual and as a workplace colleague. You’ll find an introspective view of personal development and an insightful foray into the potential for influencing groups. This book offers research-based tools and templates to guide the journey towards becoming one’s best self. The book is organized by five facets of personal and professional growth:
Facet #1 – Know your identity
Facet #2 – Suspend certainty
Facet #3 – Take responsibility
Facet #4 – Engage in reciprocity
Facet #5 – Build resiliency
A chapter devoted to each facet defines that quality along a continuum of stages with a correlated self-assessment and exercises to stimulate insight and learning. Rich, contextual examples and anecdotes enhance the understanding and relatability of each facet and adult development as a whole.
A practical resource for self-study and professional development, this book provides engaging text, web resources, and video links. Clear directions and support materials for implementing each exercise enhance the usability of this book, reduce preparation time for busy professionals, and maximize the learning potential for all readers.
