Development Initiative (Individuals)

Development Initiative (Individuals)
It is recommended that you look at each week’s skills project and work ahead. Some assignments might take you more than two or three days to arrange and complete (e.g., interviews). In other words, your deliverable (memo) is due on day four of each week, but the planning and execution required to complete the deliverable might take you more than a couple of days to complete.

From that data gathering, you should have identified a few developmental needs for enhancing the performance of individuals, teams, and leaders.

An intervention is a specific action or series of actions taken to address a specific problem that you have identified.
