Personal development requires a framework if one wishes to know whether change has actually occurred. This why having a personal development/life coach is so important.
In the case of personal development, the life coach is the primary witness of improvement, and validation of objective improvement requires assessment using standard criteria.
Personal development frameworks may include goals or benchmarks that define the end-points, strategies or plans for reaching goals, measurement and assessment of progress, levels or stages that define milestones along a development path, and a feedback system to provide information on changes.
Life coaching draws upon a variety of tools and techniques from other disciplines such as sociology, psychology, positive adult development and career counseling with an aim towards helping people identify and achieve personal goals.
