“Life is a journey, not a destination.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Each PGA Member has a unique journey that they will navigate with the help of family, friends, colleagues, and mentors. Your chosen career path is but one facet of that journey, and I believe that when we broaden our focus from simply professional development to personal AND professional development, we reach that sweet spot where your actions are intentional and always directed towards your goals. In short, it provides the opportunity for you to become the best version of yourself.
To be clear, this exercise is NOT ONLY for job seekers, but rather for anyone who wants to align the work they do to their values, gain new skills, level up in their current role, or simply feel more in control of their future. I realize that the journey will look and feel different for each Member, and that the cadence of the development will change with the seasons of life and stages of your careers. It is for that reason that I sought out the proper platform to provide support, guidance, and counsel for those who wish to push forward to realize what they are capable of.
From that goal, the online version of the Personal & Professional Development Model was created. This learning platform will not only allow me to share content and collect information that will make our future face to face meetings more efficient and effective but will also provide you with a tangible benefit that you can complete at your own pace.
Through the guided process of the Personal and Professional Development model, I believe I can help you take another step in the direction of becoming the best possible version of yourself. I also believe that act will lead to career success, personal achievement, and fulfillment both personally and professionally.
To support this initiative, I will be traveling the section extensively for the next 2 months, hoping to meet with many of you to discuss your goals and your plan. To view my schedule and book an appointment online, please CLICK HERE. Please note that I will be adding dates in February in Columbia, Hilton Head, Charleston, Greenville (SC), Asheville, and Winston Salem. I will also be available during the Carolinas PGA Super Show in Greensboro.
As an added incentive, you will receive 1 Required MSR for completing the course and another for meeting with me to discuss your Development Plan. It is my hope that you will decide to click the link below, as I know that you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in 2019.
