Personal Development Plan (PDP) conversations

Add to favourites

Preparing for your personal development review is the best way to set the scene for a good conversation about YOU.  To make it meaningful ask yourself the following three questions;  

  • What matters to me in my job? 
  • What have I really enjoyed doing this year? 
  • What would I like to achieve (in my job/career)? 

Remember its about “talking not ticking”! 

You will find lots of useful resources including explanation of KSF dimensions, KSF guidance and videos around the personal development and planning review process and discussion on the Turas KSF guidance page.
