What are some Personal Development plan templates that have worked for you?

We are looking for a lighthearted plan template to be used for Personal Development Plans. These are to be used for developing our staff, not performance managing.

Would love to see some templates or layouts that have worked best for you!

Hi Caitlin,

I’ve found that this simple template has worked well for organisations in the past. I’ve pasted in the text as I cannot upload a PDF. I’ve found a cadence of updating a Personal Development Plan each quarter or twice per year to work well.

Cheers,

Clara

What you’re talking about could also be referred to as setting developmental goals. I found this article recently really useful for discussing that. It’s not a template (@Clara_McCormack’s post is great for that) but has some info on philosophy and approach that I got a lot of value from.
