PADI Instructor - Personal Development
It stands to reason that you’ll want to be able to instil more confidence and self esteem into others.
A coach that people will want to come back to time and time again.
You’ll want to be an even better leader.
Most of all you’ll want to be able to improve people’s lives effortlessly.
But how can you identify what Personal Development you need?
Let’s first take a closer look at the skills and knowledge that our customers expect from us, and then make a decision on where you can improve.
For now, we can break this down to two main core areas
- Diving knowledge and skills
- Teaching and coaching skills
Of course there are several more areas that you can work on to make yourself a better professional. But for now, let’s stick to these two.
PADI Instructor development- Knowledge and Skills
How confident are you when a diver asks a question about pressure volume relationships?
How about when a divemaster asks you a question about physics?
Can you answer these questions with confidence without hesitation?
What about your diving skills?
As a PADI professional, you’re always being watched and often judged by the way that you conduct yourself in the water.
Are you happy with the way that others see you?
What areas can you improve on, and in turn earn more respect?
PADI Instructor development - Teaching and coaching skills
Are you able to install confidence and self esteem in your students?
How confident are you in teaching people with different learning styles?
Do you get frustrated when a student just “doesn’t get it”?
Are you able to focus on the needs of each and every individual student?
Are you able to build rapport that genuinely builds success?
Why should you improve yourself?
As your Instructor personal development skills improve, benefits are quickly seen on both sides of the process.
Your students look to you for inspiration. They look to you for guidance.
It’s not only your knowledge that they seek, but also empathy, understanding and the way that you communicate.
The more you improve on these skills, the more your students will learn.
As your students rely more on your judgement and your help, you’ll get more respect from all other professionals around you.
You’ll get more and more satisfaction from truly knowing that you’re improving people’s lives.
