1. With your team, start to think about the general motivation guidelines and the nine principles of good motivation. Highlight those that are not evident or weak in evidence. 2. Put a plan together, complete with actions and timescales, to include these factors into your team and leadership practices. 3. Now look at the key demotivating factors above, and highlight those that are evident in your team. 4. Add tasks to the action plan, to begin to eliminate these demotivating factors. 5. Now score each factor and associated action in priority order. 6. Tackle the first three highest priority actions first and complete them. 7. Then tackle the next three actions, and so on until the action plan has been complete. 8. If not, return to the above steps and go again. 4.3 Producing a Personal Development Plan What is a Personal Development Plan? A PDP ( Personal Development Plan) is a structured process that reflects on your current learning and performance that is then developed into a plan for your future personal, educational and career development. By undertaking your own PDP, you will naturally consider your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats and enable you to create a plan that identifies how best to meet your development needs through planned formal and informal activities. Personal development planning is the process of: Establishing aims and objectives (goals) - what you want to achieve or where you want to go, in the short, medium or long-term in your career Assessing current realities Identifying needs for skills, knowledge or competence Selecting appropriate development activities to meet those perceived needs.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
