A Personality Dynamics Model for the Self-Evaluation Component of Personal and Professional Development.
Miller, Edith A.; Pascoe, Donna E.
An evaluation model was designed to be a self-evaluation component to be used in conceptualizing and implementing personal and professional development plans. The personality dynamics model itself, beyond its theoretical bases, includes the following techniques to assist the individual in the self-evaluation process leading to plan development: journaling, shadowing, and spiritual guidance. These techniques can be supplemented by others more specific to a particular personality perspective. The second step in the self-evaluation process involves the use of these techniques and others in the development activities and supplementation of the activities with mentoring and coaching as the individual implements his or her plan. The model in its development form has four dimensions: (1) the overarching theoretical frame of reference; (2) the methods for working toward insight from this frame of reference; (3) the ways of interpreting that insight with a view to planning development; and (4) an approach to continuous evaluation of the development plan. Procedures for drawing from more than one personality theory are included in the evaluation model. (Contains 24 references.) (SLD)
