Development: Life-Long Learning
MTW has a strong commitment to developing our missionaries through experience and training. Elements of our development opportunities include: a host of short term missions experiences, some of which are mentored; our on-boarding training; training offered through the Member Care and Development Department; and the offerings of Global Training and Development. In addition, MTW provides access to funding for advanced degree work that specifically helps to further our vision and mission. We are actively improving our development resources and are striving to see MTW promote a culture of life-long learning.
Resources for Creating a Personal Development Plan
There are a variety of personal assessments that can be facilitated by Global Training and Development. GTD is certified to offer and give feedback from these assessments. There may be expensable fees associated with some of the testing.
There are a number of coaches available both within and external to MTW who can help you to develop a personal plan. This is a relatively new development in MTW, so we would need to begin with a conversation and look at potential resources - some of which may involve a fee. Feel free to look to your leadership as well to discuss what may be helpful!
There are a myriad of resources online to help you structure your personal development plan. In the future, we hope to see the creation of a personal development plan as a standard part of the MTW culture. Here are but a few links that might be of interest outside of the help we can already give:
