Creating a Great Individual Development Plan to Grow Your Career

Where do you want to go in your career? What training or learning do you need to get there?

Your Individual Development Plan (IDP) can help you develop your skills, further your office’s mission, and allow you to achieve your career goals. Despite many agencies requiring them, IDPs are often done quickly and poorly without much thought or follow-through. However, when an IDP is used properly, it can act as a blueprint and take your career to new heights.

In our on-demand training we will help you learn how to:

  • Create a powerful and purposeful IDP.
  • Identify developmental opportunities that will allow you to build on your strengths and talents
  • Connect your growth opportunities to OPM executive core qualifications
  • Advance your career while supporting your agency’s mission need.

Speakers include:

  • Kathleen Flora, Certified Career Counselor and Leadership Development Instructor, DIA
  • Steve Ressler, Founder, GovLoop
