Personal and Professional Development (PPD)

“This course, if I may say, could be the BEST COURSE out of all the courses that I have been enrolled into! Now I have a clear understanding of how targets are achieved and how to overcome hurdles. Knowing my weaknesses and my strengths now, I would easily proclaim that I now know what my directions are both in my personal and professional life.”

Everyone can benefit from personal and professional development skills and this course covers such essential learning outcomes as self-analysis, goal setting, action planning, time management and performance management.

One of the major outcomes of the course is that each week participants complete activities that will form the building blocks of their final personal and professional development plan. By the end of the course each participant will have a five-year plan and implementation strategy that makes use of tools such as learning style and personality tests, SWOT analysis, SMART goal setting, time management tools and more.

The Personal and Professional Development (PPD) course is an excellent opportunity for participants to step back from the daily routine and think in depth about their professional and personal priorities. Clearly identifying personal objectives allows participants to focus on what is important to them, and this helps participants to not only excel in their own field, but also become a better team player or leader. Additionally, by engaging their manager as a partner in their PPD plan, participants can be supported in their growth.




The course is a six-week interactive e-Learning program that will be open to everyone in GAC with an ambition to improve themselves.
