Create a Powerful Personal Development Plan

Great for MBA Students and Young Professionals Looking to Advance Their Careers

The personal development process described below is a result of working with over 3,000 leaders across industries and levels of leadership over the past 20 years. It is personally delivered by an independent certified KornFerry professional who was a developer and leader of the “Disney University” and a Sr. VP of Human Resources for a large New York Stock Exchange organization with over 100,000 associates. The process has been developed leveraging the best practices of this experience.

Why is this assessment and Development planning process important?:


  1. 1. Self is the least valid rater. Particularly on people skills.
  2. 2. A major failure point is the individual’s inability to make successful transitions, such as moving from an individual contributor to a first level supervisor. It involves very different skill sets.
  3. 3. Learning Agility and Emotional Intelligence are the best 2 predictors of our ability to successfully make career transitions.
  1. 4. Follow through on assessments is where the process frequently derails. Until you practice and implement new knowledge, it is not of much value.
  2. 5. We have normative data to measure against.
  3. 6. We know that no one is great at every skill we will assess. What is most important, is to understand your handful of strengths and work on a combination of what is missing as well as the largest gaps between importance and skill.

Our Process - What you will experience.
