What sites / tools do you use for self-development?

Hi, I would be interested to know where you go online when you want to learn something to improve yourself - focusing more on soft skills, management skills, time management, well-being, setting goals, etc. Anyone have any recommendations? What do you love about those particular tools?Thanks, Claire
I will be back for replies. Thanks for asking for two. #wink
Thank you so much @iynna for sharing my post! Really appreciate it!
My friend runs a newsletter on productivity / self-improvement / time management etc. — check it out if you're interested!
Huge fan of his and a subscriber to the bundle :)
I personally love reading MEDIUM, and the key is to apply the skills you’re reading about.As for courses, I use apps like: EDX, Udemy, and youtube to learn about project management or soft skills.Lastly, i’m in healthcare, so i’m signed up for the Journal of Healthcare Management. Hope this helps! -Sabrina
Hi Claire,That's a great question and one I have been trying to answer for months and months during my user interviews! It is quite decentralised the way people fulfil their need for self development and self-improvement and there is an abundance of amazing knowledge, products and services out there! @iynna thank you so much for sharing my post about the 3SSENTIA launch with Claire!

I use a Trello board to keep a note of everything I find interesting so I have a nice collection of sites/ideas whenever I have the capacity to do something new! Most of those items come from medium, groups like this one or conferences.For setting goals I'm very paper based and use a LUX productivity planner from amazon ( which is basically a bullet journal with some static prompts - I'm on my second one now! And I have an Intelligent Change's 5 minute journal which I write in most days!Also not a site but I would definitely recommend getting a coach! I use Hackcamp and it's been amazing for developing my soft skills!
I used to be a freak on this subject so I've tried literally every assessment-like tool. (My approach is: there is no good advice / path for everyone since we vary in our natural inclinations a lot, so knowing self is the first critical step). Only one made a life changing difference for me (and still continuing to do so) ==> CliftonStrengths Assessment (by Gallup) and the whole huge knowledge base available after doing the test. Highly recommend it! It directly addresses every important soft-skill area: productivity, influence, strategy, relationships and also leadership.I'm now #1 advocate for this tool and I don't start any work in any new team without forcing everyone to do the test and to have team analysis time around the results :D If you give it a try, here's what I highly recommend before doing the assessment (this is based on my own observation of tens of people doing it, it's not any official advice from the creators of the tool)- Prepare a bigger time slot for yourself, when nothing, not even phone notifications will disrupt the process. Questions are on time (22sec for each AFAIR) and are anything but obvious :D- Do it in a native language (they offer almost every language in the world)- Do it when you're relatively focused and awake :) (not necessarily at night)HAVE FUN :) I'm almost jealous for everyone doing the test for the first time: and for the aha-moments after starting to play with the results.
My latest obsession is They're all about reducing bias, and I think that's the perfect opportunity to know you have it in you! It's pretty brilliant!!
I really like the Science of People (blog) by Vanessa Van Edwards:'m recommending it because her posts are science-based and very practical.
