Most of the times we think a personal effectiveness training would help you develop personality and how you look. Well, that is partly true. It does help you develop your personality. But personality is not just how you look on the outside. A personal effectiveness training is all about developing inside out.
So, to help you understand what I actually mean, let us directly come to the five core focus points of a personal effectiveness training.
- The Self
Every personal effectiveness training program should start with a self-analysis. When you say the word ‘personal’, it is about ‘you’. The inner you. So, understanding yourself better is the first step to be taken. Knowing where you stand. What are your strengths and weaknesses? Where do you wish to go?
Apart from this it is also important to understand why we behave the way we do. Each one us are different with different personality. So, knowing our behaviour, our attitude, understanding how we have different perceptions and the reason behind it is essential to be known. When you know where you stand that is when you can work on enhancing yourself.
We have discussed it lot of times in our previous article about how important communication is. Being able to communicate confidently is a great asset. As we recently discussed, communication is not just about exchanging information. It is lot more than that. Effective communication skill is about being able to speak, write, listen and question effectively and also about using the proper body language, gestures, facial expressions, tone of voice, being assertive etc.
- Grooming & Etiquette
Personal effectiveness training is greatly about making you look professional and well-behaved. Grooming & etiquette is a very important aspect of it. Knowing how to dress up, how to groom, how to behave, how to talk, how to write, etc. is important. You can be easily judged for it.
- Time management
One of biggest issues a lot of people face and also one of the biggest reasons why you can progress or fail in your life. People who are good at managing time have higher chances of achieving their goals. planning is something should be a priority for each one of us. If you wish to develop yourself, proper time management or prioritization is a key skill you require for sure.
- Goal setting
You cannot be successful in your life if you don’t have goals in your life. If you don’t have goals, you can lose focus. Goal setting skill help you to stay on track and work towards something. But you can’t randomly set a goal. It is a huge exercise. It needs to be accurate.
