Self-development is the third domain of leader development and an essential component of lifelong learning (first introduced to Navy training by Admiral Vern Clark). Self development is a goals-based, feedback driven program of activities and learning that contributes to professional competence, organizational effectiveness, and professional development. Individual and organizational assessment and feedback programs in the operational and institutional domains, linked to developmental actions, grow competent and confident leaders, and result in trained and ready organizations and units. Developing leaders to meet the needs of the service and the nation requires agile and innovative leader development and education systems.
