Throughout life, obstacles and challenges require you to adapt – changing environments, new roles, and new relationships. Focusing on personal development helps individuals better manage, improve, and excel in their careers, education, and personal life. In addition, it can help you to step outside of your comfort zone, develop your strengths, boost your confidence, improve your self-awareness, and build stronger relationships.
For employers, promoting continuous learning can drive employee engagement, ultimately impacting job performance and productivity. Likewise, personal development can help individuals embrace their full potential, improve their quality of life, and attain their dreams. Whether you are a business looking to develop your workforce or an individual seeking professional or personal coaching, ILD can pair you with the right coach to meet your needs.

Everyone Is a JERK to Someone, Every Day
Painless Ways to Improve Communication with Individuals and Teams
Written by Rebecca M. Rhodes
Who Sounds More Like a Jerk to You?
Someone who hangs up before you are done talking.
Someone who stares out the window when you are speaking.
Someone who won’t let you forget your past mistakes.
Someone who justifies everything in response to a question.
We tend to judge ourselves by our intentions, while judging others by their actions. This often leads us to one thought... “Jerk!”
In Everyone Is a Jerk to Someone Every Day, communication expert and ILD President, Rebecca Rhodes, uses the Breakthrough Communication Model to explain how perceptions lead to misunderstandings that can be easily avoided.
