HOW IMPORTANT IS PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT?
Updated: Apr 3
WHAT IS PERSONALITY?
Personality is what makes a person unique. It is the general style of an individual with which he interacts with the whole world. It also refers to the psychological characteristics of an individual. Personality is the trait of a person that is displayed consistently at different times with different people under different circumstances. These traits are a mix of good and bad. Personality is not a trait that is born, but built.
Personality is a soft skill which when added to the academic excellence is in the right ratio for success. Generally speaking, it would be a lot better if Personality Development is introduced as a subject at school level. Since it is not a subject at school level, it is advisable to complete a corporate training course on PD to makes things go smooth in the professional front.
WHAT IS PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT?
You might be wondering, if personality is consistent, how can they be developed or changed? That's a perfect question! The personality of anyone cannot be changed if they aren't willing to change. As mentioned earlier, personality is a trait of good and bad, and if someone is willing to change their bad trait, yes, it is possible to change. Consequence of personality development would be a better version of oneself.
There is a famous quote which goes by "if you are persistent, you will get it; and if you are consistent, you will keep it." This is quite apt for changing one's personality. Being persistent is the sure path to modify one's trait.
WHY PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT?
Personality development happens slowly over time. It requires enhancement of one's characteristic and attributes and that needs to be constantly worked upon to develop one's personality.
Often times personality development is always tied to professional set up. I always have this question in my mind...should it not be an overall development, both in the personal and professional spheres? Yes, right! So, personality development is the best way to be a better person than what one was the day before.
Personality development is the key to improve one's persona and thus plays a huge role in determining one's success. Our personality develops according to our convenience and comfort. Sometimes, we would have developed and imbibed a negative trait without even realizing it to be a negative one. That's where the guidance for personality development comes in.
IMPORTANCE OF PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT COURSE:
More so than never, self development is considered the last among all the competencies one should possess. But surprisingly nobody has realized that practicing self development acts as the gateway to all other competencies. When we understand and stay positive about our self worth, all other things automatically falls into its place.
Now that we know why personality development is required, let us see the outcomes at the end of personality development course.
The course ensures that the personality is shaped up in the best way under appropriate guidance.
Strong personality traits are identified and made the strongest trait.
Weak personality traits are identified and steps undertaken to resolve that as much as possible.
Hidden or ignored character aspects are brought out to be honed further.
Communication skill is the greatest key to success and this can be achieved through the course. Communication is a tool that aids in clarity of thoughts and putting that thought across to anyone.
Self-esteem is boosted up since you are confident in your thoughts and actions. nteracting with people from any background becomes easier.
With this newly developed skill, it becomes easier to handle people with any personality in your daily life.
Developing a positive outlook overall. This helps in looking at life in a different light and achieving any goals.
Improved public speaking skill.
Improved work efficiency, time management, and organizational skills.
Developing the characteristic of an effective listener.
Developing the art of being open to feedback.
Most important of all, a self-developed one can easily develop others around them.
While all the above listed characteristics seem easy to understand and obtain, it is as hard as it could get to retain those always. So, the trick here would be to be persistent, keep applying the characteristics learnt, and eventually there would be consistency and hence it becomes a habit, and ultimately defines one's personality.
For instance, if a person lacks being assertive, explaining it theoretically is not a big task. The big task actually is of the person to apply the skill of being assertive, wherever required, and imbibing it in oneself until it becomes a second nature to be assertive.
While personality development might sound a bit like a jargon, it isn't actually. It is understanding one's strength and working towards outshining that characteristic among others and developing certain other characteristics which might be the need of the hour. The trait needs to be practiced upon until others start recognizing that trait as belonging to us and we are more confident being that self.
