Our department is offering four Professional Development Core Workshops, one per month, beginning in November 2022 through February 2023. Each month there will be a 1-hour workshop on a development topic, a 1-hour workshop on a fundamental self-awareness or skill topic, and an optional Calm-based short course learning program.
Building a Learning Plan Core Workshop
In comparing our well-understood real self and our ideal self, we can identify areas in which we are already at our ideal, and areas in which we have a gap toward achieving it. In the areas in which there is a gap, we can focus our intentional development efforts on crossing the gap – bringing our real self closer to our ideal in one or more ways. The learning plan can be as simple as taking a course, or as complex as trying a new behavior and seeking feedback on its effectiveness. Developing a learning plan is a critical event in Intentional Change. In Workshop 3, we will discuss methods for developing a learning plan, including exploring local and distance options, utilizing mentoring, coaching, and other relationships.
