Conventionally, personal or professional development is a formal means by which an individual (normally working with a teacher, mentor or supervisor) sets out goals, strategies and outcomes of learning and training aimed at helping the individual to make the best out of his/her career/profession.

This is usually achieved through on-the-job learning, courses and workshops, online-based learning etc.
