Individual Development Plan:HOW WILL I GET THERE?

After deciding where you want to be, identify developmental areas. Ask questions such as:

    *What specific skills, knowledge and abilities do I possess?
    *What do I strengthen now to meet where I am?
    *What do I strengthen for future assignments?

Determine your barriers.

    *What do I need to overcome the barriers?
    *What is in my way?
    *Where do I need to change?

Identify the sources of the barriers and determine the need and actions to overcome them.
