Professional Development = Talent Development

Talent Development is a continual process of self-improvement achieved through self-awareness, coaching, practice, feedback, and training. The time you spend on professional development is a direct investment into your professional success. Maximizing returns on this investment requires that you have an openness to candid feedback, a willingness to improve, and the patience to realize change.

Why should you invest the time? Because, employers want more than a degree; they want a professional.
