New Member Resource: A Guide to Effective Individual Development Plans
Posted on September 29, 2022 by Anna Mowry
September is National Workforce Development Month and to celebrate a new member resource, A Guide to Effective Individual Development Plans, is now available.
What is an Individual Development Plan?
Individual Development Plans (IDPs) offer an opportunity for managers and staff to work together to encourage growth and advancement. These plans are co-written between staff and their supervisors during one-on-one conversations and can lead to engaged staff who feel supported and encouraged by their manager.
Developed by our partners at LeadingAge, this new resource includes a getting starting guide with templates, agendas, and scripts to help managers engage and encourage growth with their staff. When IDPs are developed and put into action, staff grow their skills and organizations see more engaged, dedicated, and empowered team members.
