Professional development is universally emphasized in graduate school and in the workplace. However, although various aspects of professional development are imperative to complete workplace tasks (training on new techniques, public speaking, etc.), personal development is the true foundation to career success. In this webinar, Dr. Greg Bohall, MS '07, will review important content from his co-authored textbook titled "The Psychologist's Guide to Professional Development". More specifically, the differences between personal and professional development, various areas of self-exploration, types of motivation, communication skills and conflict management, goal setting and time management, and stress management will be reviewed.
