Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this Army publication draws on lessons from the field, educational and leadership research, and applicable Army regulations and doctrine to provide you with state-of-the-art guidance on designing and implementing your own program of self-development. There are three types of self-development: • Structured Self-Development: Required learning that continues throughout your career and that is closely linked to and synchronized with classroom and on-the-job learning. • Guided Self-Development: Recommended but optional learning that will help keep you prepared for changing technical, functional, and leadership responsibilities throughout your career. • Personal Self-Development: Self-initiated learning where you define the objective, pace, and process. The contents of this handbook will help you perform all three types of self-development. If you are pursuing personal self-development, this handbook offers exercises and information you can use to determine your self-development direction and start immediately working toward it. If you already have a direction for your self-development, the handbook will help you achieve progress in that direction. Wherever you find yourself in the journey for professional growth, this handbook is organized to assist with: • Recognizing strengths and weaknesses (What are you good and not so good at?) • Setting or confirming self-development direction (Where should you go?) • Making the most of learning opportunities (How do you learn?) • Measuring progress and continuing to move forward (How well are you doing?)
