Personal development refers to individual self-development and the development of others. By extension, personal development may involve programs, tools and methods. At the level of individuals  personal development includes goals, plans or actions oriented towards one or more of the following aims:

* improving self-awareness
* improving self-knowledge
* building or renewing identity
* developing strengths or talents
* identifying or improving potential
* building employability or human capital
* enhancing lifestyle or the quality of life
* realizing dreams
* fulfilling aspirations
* defining and executing personal development plans

The concept covers a wider field than self-development or self-help: personal development also includes developing others. Fostering the personal development of others may take place through roles such as those of a teacher or mentor, through a personal competency (such as the ability of certain managers in developing the potential of employees), through a professional service (such as providing training or assessment) or through coaching.  Text courtesy of Wikipedia.
