If you're a boss, you know that every day is a challenge to do better. This tip is based on the same research I used to develop my programs and the Working Supervisor's Support Kit .
Get serious about personal development
It's easy to fool yourself into thinking that you're serious about your personal development and it's easy to put development effort off till tomorrow or "someday." Here's a test to see if you're really serious about it.
Do you have a personal development plan?
Do you schedule time for personal development and put it on the calendar before you schedule routine work?
Do you have a budget for personal development?
If you're really serious about your personal development, you answered "Yes" to all three questions. If you didn't, stop fooling yourself. Create a self-development plan and make sure you've set aside time and money to invest in your improvement.
If you have a copy of the Working Supervisor's Support Kit , you'll find more on this in the chapter titled "There's Always More to Learn."
