New LDC resource: The individual development plan toolkit

A significant part of LDC’s leadership development is our focus on individual development planning. Such planning is important in that it helps our members access the right career development tailored to their specific needs, as well as the needs of their agency and the wider sector.

This new toolkit provides an overview of how to create an individual development plan (IDP). It outlines both the individual’s and their manager’s roles in the development process and includes starter templates, checklists for development planning and a summary of research around leading development planning practices.

The IDP toolkit will be beneficial for leaders at all levels. This includes chief executives with the expectations and priority focus in their role of the development of people and leaders.

Find out more about IDPs and download the IDP toolkit.
