The Personal Development Plan (PDP) is a mutual commitment between employer and employee to support the acquisition of new skills. It is an essential tool for all managers who wish to support performance, develop potential, or prepare employees for a career transition (change of position or promotion). The PDP helps clarify the skills acquired and the points to be strengthened in order to face the challenges of the new position.
A real lever for personal growth, the PDP sets the employees in motion, helping them to progress towards regular successes. Structured and concrete, it is deployed in seven steps based on the allegory of a journey. The manager guides and accompanies the employee from the starting point to the final destination.

This workshop is tailored to take into account the client’s competency development processes: LMS, internal documents, etc. Participants create their own personal development plan with the support of a 2 to 3 hour digitalised course of activities and tools. The pedagogical approach is participative with numerous role plays during which participants facilitate a PDP follow-up interview and practice the tools presented. The optional presence of an actor makes the approach even more effective.
