Personal Development Plans


Based on the Plena™ Development Model, our Personal Development Plans are designed to complement our Ithaca Program and Coaching services to yield optimal results. The process includes multiple stages through which the individual gradually:

  • indicates who they are and what they want to become (Self-Discovery)
  • determines their personality traits and personal values
  • sets challenging personal goals
  • develops and masters personal competencies (knowledge, skills and abilities) necessary for personal growth, in combination with tools, techniques, and assessments (Self-Development) . By this stage, the individual has become more confident and emotionally satisfied
  • develops habits and behaviors that will increase their personal effectiveness reaching Self-Mastery
  • achieves Self-Actualization by being the best that can be
  • reaches eventually Self-Transcendence.


A Personal Development Plan (PDP) is a structured and systematic approach to self-improvement that involves identifying personal goals, assessing strengths and weaknesses, and creating a plan of action to achieve those goals. PDPs can be used by individuals in various contexts, such as in the workplace, education, or personal life.

Characteristics of our Personal Development Plans include:

  1. Goal-oriented: The plan focuses on specific, measurable, and achievable goals that the individual wants to achieve.
  2. Self-assessment: The individual assesses their own strengths and weaknesses, identifies areas for improvement, and sets goals accordingly.
  3. Action-oriented: The plan includes actionable steps that the individual will take to achieve their goals.
  4. Time-bound: The plan includes timelines and deadlines for achieving specific goals.
  5. Review and evaluation: The individual regularly reviews and evaluates their progress towards their goals and adjusts their plan as needed.
