The transition of one year to the next invites reflection and reassessment. This is keenly felt by Talent Developers, who often use this time to focus their inherent love of learning on their own personal and professional growth. We watch TED Talks; we listen to podcasts; we read articles passed around LinkedIn. But how much of all this free-flowing "casual knowledge" do we actually retain and apply?

This webinar will introduce a model to make sense of self-improvement, empowering participants to use it or one of their own design to organize personal and professional growth into one coherent framework.

After this program, participants should be able to:

  • Identify their self-improvement interests and practice aligning them to a defined model
  • Use a provided model to identify areas of concentration and areas of opportunity for self-improvement
  • Write an action plan for integrated personal and professional growth

 Matt Elwell, CPTD has spent over 15 years using improvisation techniques as teaching tools for improving human/soft skills. In the era of COVID, when live training all but vanished, Matt focused on creating one universal framework for all the skills he regularly taught, from communication to creativity, from customer service to leadership. The result was the PLAY PolaritiesTM, which he provides to help people make sense of their betterment journeys, both individually and collectively.
