How to Reach Your Goals > Seek Training for Targeted Skills

Seek Training for Targeted Skills

In addition to choosing some challenging assignments, you will want to explore training opportunities. Training programs are most useful when you have identified a specific skill that will help you reach your development goal. For example, if your goal is to become better at influencing peers, honing your negotiation skills could help you reach that goal.

Such programs also provide a safe place within which to practice the new skills. This is important because you are more likely to try unfamiliar behaviors when you feel supported. Practicing in a safe environment will also allow you to make your mistakes where they can’t get you into trouble. For example, if you don’t feel confident about delivering negative feedback, a training program is a safe place to practice that skill.
