Personalizing HRD Goals

In the same manner as personalizing problems, we may personalize goals using the HRD model elaborated in Appendix B. As may be viewed, the diagnosis of the resource deficits leads directly to setting objectives for functioning: detractors seek to become observers; observers to become participants; participants to become contributors; contributors to become leaders in any or all of the resource components.


Using the HRD model, then, we may personalize physical goals at various levels:

“You feel happy to become energized.”

“You’re looking forward to mobilize to become intensely energized to do your work.”

“You’re eager to get the stamina along with the intensity in your life.”
