Career Development and Professional Growth

Military Cultural Awareness and Foreign Language Training

Development is what you do to get better at your job — growth is the big picture.

It’s important to plan for both, which is where Tonex can help with over four dozen courses in career development and professional growth.

Experts in this area believe the more you take charge of your career development, the more you can influence your career growth.

While some career development happens naturally as you work and learn from co-workers, dedicating time to growing and expanding your skill set can accelerate the speed of career growth and lead to new opportunities.

There’s nothing wrong with working to become a CEO, but it’s important to remember that growth isn’t always vertical. Consider your career values and how your work aligns with them.

Ultimately, it’s important to remember that you should be the one to define what growth means to you.

It’s also important to keep in mind that career growth is the long-term journey of professional advancement. A common career path of growth includes getting promoted either at your organization or moving to a higher career level at another company. This accounts for most of the advancement in the workplace.

Career development is more about the actions a person takes that enable career growth. Career development includes building valuable skills within their career management plan while keeping track of opportunities both inside and outside of a person’s current workplace.

Many believe that without career development and professional growth there’s stagnation. Seeking development opportunities breaks the stagnation cycle and gets you moving forward again.

Benefits for Organizations As Well

A recent well-regarded study shows that a company on average loses more than $14,000 for every job that says vacant longer than three months. Rather than waiting for the perfect employee to come along, it could help companies to focus on utilizing professional development to build the skill sets they need in an organization.

For one thing, when organizations plan for career development and professional growth with the employees they already have, succession is made easier.

Professional development programs are great tools for training future leaders at an organization. Rather than hiring outside the business, promoting from within is a great way to show your staff that they can have a long career with your organization.

A professional development program can also reduce the knowledge gaps that are inevitable with turnover and outside hires. By choosing professional development programs that help your employees master skills they need to progress, organizations essentially shape the development of future leaders.

Experts in this field contend that in-house focus on career development and professional growth also builds confidence and credibility as well as improve efficiency.
