In this episode, we talk about creating a Personal Development Plan. Setting yourself, and your team, up for success doesn’t just happen. You want to figure out where you want to go and what you need to do to get you there, and Marmel and Brooks will take you through 8 questions to help you do that.
If you’re an employer or have a team, we’ll also go through how to support your team members with their learning journey, because the more your team grows, the more your organization will grow. We’ll wrap up with how we at AE go from yearly objectives from the CEO -> each team member’s Plan, so everyone is growing and aligned.
