Summary module description:

The Personal Development module is an integrated and holistic part of all MBA programmes at Henley Business School. It supports and challenges managers in all aspects of their growth and is a catalyst for reflection on learning from all other modules of the MBA.  



 



Personal Development is defined as the identification and removal of those restraints that limit the likelihood of sustainable individual, organisational, social and environmental health and well-being. 



 



 


Aims:

Aims: 



 



There are four ideas at the heart of the Personal Development activities at Henley: 



 





  1. PD is a holistic activity. It starts with raising self-awareness about capabilities, motivations and ambitions in the context of universal values that create collective principles and personal beliefs. PD promotes lifelong learning and leads to a broad understanding of the role of the manager in society; 





 





  1. Self-awareness requires the space and time to reflect





 





  1. From reflection on current reality, learners find and prepare for aims and goals (at work and in life) by establishing awareness of gaps and systematically building a personal action plan; 





 





  1. The articulation of thoughts, emotions, goals and achievements across a range of media, and the demonstration of critical thinking, are necessary outcomes to measure personal development

    Brief description of teaching and learning methods:

     



    Personal Development Review and Planning 



     



    The module is designed around a core process of teaching and learning by reflection to prepare Programme Members to make the most of their course overall.  Specific tasks for review, reflection and planning are built into the course materials, creating a record that is then updated iteratively throughout Stages 1, 2 and 3. Written formative and summative assessments come at the end of each stages of the programme. 



     



    Blended Learning  



     



    The module uses a blended learning approach combining: 



     





    • online resources and exercises, supporting a Study Guide, and subject tutors; 




    • a sequence of four, one-day PD workshops; 




    • self-study and interaction with learning team; 







    • a series of additional online support resources are made available throughout the programme.
