The Value of Professional Development

Why is professional development critical for fast-growing Startups?

The Value of Professional Development

Fast-growing Startups run on talent development.

Professional development is often cast aside as a tool tailor-made for the C-suite and executive level employees – out of reach for most. The truth is, everyone can benefit from coaching.

Coaching helps you traverse the treacherous terrain of the professional world, no matter where you start. The lessons and insights you learn separate you from the pack, not to mention the added value it brings when seeking new opportunities, asking for a promotion, or even a pay raise.

Studies show that professional development improved individuals’ learning capacity by 25% and performance by 20%. Additionally, 74% of employees claim they don’t feel like they are reaching their full potential. This is where coaching comes in.

Here are just a few of the areas you can improve and boost with coaching:

  • Communication
  • Mindset
  • Work-Life Balance
  • Time-Management
  • Productivity

You may be wondering: why shouldn’t I find a mentor at my current job? Well, managers and higher-level employees are too often busy with their own work to devote sufficient time and energy to your specific needs. Further, professional development coaches are accredited and suitably educated to help you.

Taking the time to invest in yourself and your career can – and will – pay dividends down the road. With tools like Blossom, you’ll even have immediate access to insights and analytics that show objective and quantifiable results along your journey.

Just as we take care of our bodies by going to the gym, or manage our mental health through meditation, why shouldn’t we invest in our professional selves?

We spend over 30% of our lives at work. Let’s make the most out of that time.
