Build Your Professional Development Plan

“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”

While Benjamin Franklin was more focused on nation building, his advice applies to career building as well. 

If you don’t have well-defined goals and a clear action plan to achieve them, your career will suffer.


Without a Professional Development Plan (PDP) or Career Plan, You…

  • Don’t have a roadmap to get from where you are to where you want to be
  • May be overlooked for promotions, raises and new opportunities
  • Don’t have a strategy for expanding your skills and capabilities

Put simply: You can’t get ahead without a plan. 

No matter what your career aspirations, a professional development plan will help you get there. 


So, how do you create your own Professional Development Plan (PDP) or Career Plan?

Follow this tried-and-true process that walks you through every step.

Look, building a PDP or Career Plan is a big project. 

You can’t be expected to know all the ins and outs.

But I do!

And I’m making it easy for you.

See What People Are Saying 

We have been using this workbook in our leadership development program and found it to be the best resource available on this topic. It covers the theory, the process, and the execution of career planning very well. Following it actually results in a workable plan. It leads people through it in an easy-to-understand manner. It’s fill-in-the-blank structure helps facilitate getting a decent plan together quite efficiently, especially for technical professionals who are somewhat skeptical of “touchy-feely” assessment and planning processes. 

J. Wilson, 5-Star Amazon Review

I have used this workbook for myself personally as well as mentoring others I work with. It has a clear and concise program that is broken down into chapters, so it is easy to follow. This is a very good tool for people who want a solid foundation in learning about themselves and how to build their career.
