Work/Learning Plans for Employee Development

Workshop Name: “Help! My Learning Plan is Due!”

In order to keep up with today’s fast pace and competitive markets, organizations must foster an environment of continuous learning and staff development. Thus, employees and leaders alike must take a more proactive approach in managing their learning and career development. This workshop leads participants through the process of career planning and performance goal setting, with a focus on developing a draft work/learning plan.

  Preparing for the Journey
Based on the metaphor of traveling as part of career growth, participants will gain a better understanding of their personal style, career interests and learning preferences.

Identifying Career Roadblocks
Participants will identify any roadblocks that might prevent them from reaching their career destination, and develop strategies to overcome them.

Choosing the Next Destination
Participants will learn how to set realistic, informed career goals and plans based on potential opportunities and building their qualifications to meet organizational expectations. These career goals can also be used in pre-retirement planning..

Identifying Travel Needs
Once participants have identified their career goals and the need for competency development, they will create an action plan to address learning gaps and to develop new skills.

Planning the Travel Route
Participants will learn what resources and programs are available to take them to the next step in their career path. This includes what programs, web resources, finances and training opportunities are available internally, as well as external opportunities such as universities and career centres.

Hitting the Road
Participants will draft a learning and development plan, based on their career goals and performance expectations as set by their managers. This learning and development place provides a platform for discussion during performance appraisals and for gaining support in achieving career/performance goals.




It went way beyond what I expected! The most valuable parts of this workshop were looking at competencies, goals and strategies for learning tips. It was informative as well as fun through discussion.
