Taking into consideration that professional development is about improving career-related skills and knowledge, personal development is the process of improving yourself physically, mentally and emotionally.
While there is a connection between these two concepts, they are ultimately quite different.
Professional development focuses on furthering one’s career and being more successful, personal development focuses on the individual’s own personal growth.
Both areas interconnect because the skills and knowledge gained through professional development can be applied to improve yourself on a personal level, and vice versa.
For example, improving time management skills can help a person become more efficient and organized at work and in their personal life.
Personal and professional development are equally important to be successful in life.
When continually working on these two areas, we can become better people in general, also increasing our chances of achieving our goals in life.
In summary, it is necessary to develop both professional and personal aspects, in order to obtain true professional human development.
