A commitment to personal growth and healthy practices
What is it?
Personal development takes place over the course of a lifetime. It includes activities that improve self-awareness, develop strengths, increase potential, and better quality of life. Personal development can also include developing other people, for example as their mentor, manager, or coach.
Why is it important?
Personal development is critical, especially for anyone working in a challenging environment. The workplace and workforce are maturing, growing, and advancing, and we must be able to keep up. On a deeper level, all individuals must adapt to changes that occur throughout life, and personal development can bring us closer to reaching self-actualization and full potential.
