            staff, discuss and outline the steps you will undertake in designing an effective training
            and development program for your office.

            Supposing I am the supervisor and I will design training and development program for my office,
            the following are the steps to be undertaken:

            1. Assess and provide feedback on the skills and interests of my staff

                It is important to evaluate or review the employees’ skills and help them identify their
                strengths, weaknesses, interests and values by maintaining open effective communication
                and on-going encouragement. In this stage, I will be able to show them how to identify their
                skills, interests and values.

            2. Select training and development activity that match their career development
               objectives on job needs

                Through this training and development activity I will be able to provide the organizational
                information, realities and resources that will help them develop realistic career goals based
                on departmental needs and their individual development plan. They will be able to
                understand the current opportunities and limitations and directing them on the feasibility of
                various options.

            3. Use development and training catalog as a tool to tell the employees about training
               and development and to create annual development plan

                This mechanism will evaluate the employees’ performance in an open, sincere way and
                relate this to potential opportunities. Cultivating progress through frequent feedbacks and by
                conducting performance appraisal that defines strengths, weaknesses and career
                development needs. Relate this current performance to future potential in realistic ways.
                Individual development plan will be used as a tool for continuous feedback and development.
