Personal planning and skills

Humanitarian aid work requires dedicating yourself to the management of skills and resources necessary to accomplish the task. Just as important, it requires dedication to managing yourself: professional development and learning plus physical, emotional and mental health. In addition to Understanding Career Transitions and Managing Stress, managing yourself includes building your personal resilience and emotional intelligence, developing good team/social relationships, ensuring effective time management and productivity, and taking care of your body (exercise, nutrition).
