How to choose the best development option when it comes to investing in your personal growth?

Updated: Nov 26, 2021

Learn about the top 3 options when it comes to investing in yourself.

Maybe you have been thinking about investing in your personal or professional development but there are so many options out there that you end up feeling so overwhelmed and more confused than you were initially.

What are your options when it comes to investing in your growth?

When you type personal growth on the internet you are shown courses, programs, retreats and so many coaching options. So let's start by looking at the 3 most popular options.

A Do-It-Yourself online course

An DIY online course is a way to learn a new skill or gain some new knowledge from the comfort of your own home. It is a relatively cheap way to learn what you need in a few clicks.

What are the benefits of an online course?

- It is probably the most affordable option.

- It is great if you are looking to learn a specific skill or want to improve in a specific area of your life.

- It is great when you don't have a lot of time. Online courses can be done at your own pace.

What are the disadvantages of an online course?

- There are too many options online and it's sometimes hard to find the right match.

- This is not great if you lack motivation because you are on your own so if you are a procrastinator, this might not be right for you.

- You might be tempted to buy every new course you see about something you like. Be careful if you have the shiny object syndrome.

A group program/coaching

A group coaching is a two- to three-month commitment that allows you to learn from a coach through a structured program and benefit from the support and accountability of other like-minded individuals.

What are the benefits of a group program/coaching?

- This gives you access to a coach to guide you through a program/course instead of doing it on your own.

- You get access to a community of like-minded individuals who are going through the same thing and with whom you can exchange.

- You get accountability from the coach and other members so you don't need to worry about procrastinating.

- You get access to the replays in case you can't join the live calls and have the option sometimes to join additional Q&A calls.

What are the disadvantages of a group coaching?

- Some group programs can have too many people in the group calls (sometimes it’s hard to even ask a question).

- This option can be a bigger financial investment than a DIY course.

- Group programs are not tailored to you as an individual, so you will need to keep up if you want to complete the program.

Individual Coaching (1:1 coaching)

Individual coaching, is designed to help you reach your personal or professional goals. This may sound very broad but that's because it is. A coach will typically work with you based on their experience and area of expertise to help you to improve a skill, build a system or achieve a personal goal.

What are the benefits of individual coaching?

- The biggest benefit is that you get a personalized approach from the coach. You are a VIP and together with your coach you will create a plan of action to help you reach your goals.

- Individual coaching is great if you need extra flexibility because of your lifestyle and other commitments. (Working mum, solopreneur...)

- This option also give you faster results due to strong accountability and guidance that you get. Obviously you still have to show up and do the work. Getting a coach does not mean that they will do the work for you.

What are the disadvantages of one on one coaching?

- You may need a community to network with (most coaches do have a community that you can join either included in the package or as a paid offer). This is great if you do need someone else to cheer you on and collaborate with.

- Individual coaching requires a higher investment of time and money.

After reading through this, what do you think is the best option for you right now?

Do you need a course to learn something specific?

Do you want a community to learn with and network with?

Do you need a strong strategy and clear action plan with VIP support?
