|Chapter 6. Some other opportunities for self-development|
An excellent way to develop yourself is by training and teaching others. As an effective manager you will be doing this as part of your job, on an everyday ad hoc basis. But why not consider offering your services to give sessions on training courses as such, either within your organisation or at a local college or institution?
Alternatively, you may have some skill or interest not directly associated with work (e.g. sport or a hobby). Again, a local college, youth club, or other community venture might well be only too pleased to have you work with them.
This work might involve direct coaching or instruction, or you might bring your managerial expertise to help run a club, committee, voluntary body, or whatever. So you will need to decide whether you want to train by giving direct instruction, or by working with others who can learn from your example.
