Development Goals

  • Long-term: Participate in coaching relationships with peers and management with the goal of motivating them, assisting in the development of skills and provide and reinforcement and feedback as appropriate. This is beneficial to my development in that coaching develops high-potential management, assists with changing counterproductive behaviors and provides trusted sources to act as sounding boards.
  • Ongoing: Formal education programs to include onsite and offsite programs that directly correlate to the functions of the instructional designer.  The formal courses will foster skills in instructional design technology, assessments and evaluation, and multimedia interactive learning techniques.
  • Ongoing: Job enlargement adds both new challenges and responsibilities to a role.  Seeking creative and innovative ways to assist departments manage learning and development goals.  This will assist the instructional designer in learning more about the organizational structure and culture but foster leadership skills and organizational skills to help departments reach their goals.
  • Short-term: Assessment exercises are designed identify employees with managerial potential and measure the strengths and weaknesses of current management. Optional methods are personality test, performance appraisals and 360- degree feedback systems.
