self development

The Oxford Dictionary defines self development as the process by which a person’s character or abilities are gradually developed. The keywords here are ‘character,’ ‘abilities’ and ‘gradually developed’ and they suggest that self development can neither be rushed nor done incompletely.

In this edition of our monthly Facebook Live event focused on self-development for career professionals, we hosted IT professional and career coach, Abisoye Faari Akinola. She spoke extensively about why you need to develop yourself to achieve career growth and personal growth. Faari currently works with one of Nigeria’s foremost FMCGs.

She is passionate and enthusiastic; she mentors, educates, writes and shares resources about self development and growth, personal branding for bored mid-career professionals who need to switch gear to the next level.

Watch our full interview with Faari and share with us in the comment section your self-development ritual.
