Planning Your Own Pathway to Grant Guru

For your convenience, you can download the webinar slides here, and the Self-Assessment and Training Plan Worksheet here.

Do you have a firm grasp of what skills and knowledge a successful grant professional should have? Would you like to learn a logical way to create or contribute to your own professional development plan? Or perhaps you are curious about what knowledge and skills your peers have determined to be the pillars of their own success? 

Julie Assel has combined change theory with the Grant Professional Certified (GPC) Competencies and Skills to create an innovative self-assessment tool you can use to evaluate your own knowledge, experience, and comfort in the nine competencies and sixty-four skills. Learn how to utilize a self-assessment tool to create your own professional development plan and become more confident in your areas of strength.

In this recorded session, you will learn how to:

  • Determine your personal areas of strength and growth
  • Craft your professional development plan to address areas where there are gaps in knowledge, experience, or comfort
  • Identify opportunities to utilize your strengths to help local organizations, communities, and the greater grant profession in general
