When asking for professional development funding, do this:
- Hit Two Birds With One Stone
- Show Industry Evidence
- Set a Benchmark
- After attending this social media training, I’ll engage the rest of the marketing department to generate 20% more online leads by the end of the fiscal year.
- Attending this lean manufacturing conference will allow me to lead our team to a 11% reduction in waste by the end of the third quarter.
- Once completing training in presentation skills, I’ll volunteer to lead three staff meetings this year.
- I’ll agree to receive a 360 assessment of my leadership skills, before the training and again six months after the training, to assess my progress.
