Keeping up with personal development at work can sometimes seem a really unecessary waste of time, money and effort. There are often times when you’re tearing from here to there, dropping children off at school or the minder, racing between stores to get those essentials before the office day starts. However, in these days of less security in the workplace, so many people lining up for each job, it is always a good idea to sit back every six months and decide where we are at. Appraising ourselves can be a strange occupation, but if you look at whether you have enjoyed the last few months, have you been able to keep abreast of current trends, are you keeping on top of things?
Keeping your training up to date is essential. It shows your comittment to youself and your employer and will put you at the top of the list of proactive colleagues willing to go that extra mile.
