Personal development includes activities that improve identity, develop talents and potential of an individual. It facilitates employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams, goals and aspirations. The concept is not limited to self-help but includes formal and informal activities for developing colleagues. As personal development takes place in the context of organizations it refers to the methods, tools, techniques, and assessment systems that support human development at the individual level in organizations. Personal development planning ensures that we receive recognition for our work through a process which acknowledges our achievements and provides us with as much information as possible about what we do and what is required to do it better. This should have the effect of increasing our motivation. For example, providing positive comments about employees’ work, acknowledging their contributions at meetings and allowing them to undertake more challenging and responsible tasks are ways of recognizing and endorsing employees’ work on a normal basis. It is very important to remember that personal development plans are not static documents. For example, they may need to be altered from time to time to reflect changes in key responsibilities which may occur in response to changing organizational priorities and personal priorities.
