Personal Development: A Call to Excellence.
Massachusetts Career Development Inst., Springfield.
This booklet is one of six texts from a workplace literacy curriculum designed to assist learners in facing the increased demands of the workplace. It discusses personal development, providing readers with new insights and positive ways of thinking and feeling about themselves, others, places, and things in their lives. The booklet's emphasis is mainly on self-esteem, attitudes, motivation, and goal setting. The first section examines factors that influence self-esteem: the body, mind, inner power, emotion, intuition, environment, experiences, and relationships. The second section focuses on factors that hinder personal development, including rejection, comparisons, role expectations, guilt, resentment, clutter, and negativity. The final section in the booklet discusses four ways to develop oneself through positive responses, visualization and affirmation, and goal setting. The booklet includes practical, hands-on exercises that allow readers to put theory into practice. (KC)
