During personal development seminars the people in attendance are given specific advice and assistance as well as techniques which are helpful in developing their various personal skills. There are many reasons to attend such a conference or seminar but typical examples are to develop better time management, overcome a feeling of unhappiness or to feel greater personal satisfaction in ones daily life. A professional personal development seminar is used in a managerial setting although many such seminars can have religious overtones. These seminars can be presented in different formats although the most common approach is to have the seminar led by one or a small group of people and the format is somewhat like a workshop or a conference. The people that are in attendance will listen to various speakers about development skills and how people have managed to take the lessons imparted and attain personal happiness. During the typical seminar there are activities which include interactive conversations as well as exercises in skill building and development. During the seminar the organizers normally provide the attendees with various pieces of reading material as well as audio and video recordings that can be referred to for continued development once the seminar is concluded. The core purpose of personal development seminars to be assist the attendees in the development of skills and understanding that they feel are missing in their life. People may, for example, attend a seminar where the focus is time management; their purpose is to overcome certain animosity that can develop over time due to habitual tardiness. Other seminars will focus on feelings that are indications of a lack of happiness; the efforts here are focused on developing a greater self awareness and understanding. Many people feel a sense of dissatisfaction with their lives, these types of seminars can help in alleviating such feelings. What can be stressed is introspection, the participant is asked to look inwards in an attempt to identify what is lacking; what has to be done to create greater personal fulfillment.

Time management and fulfillment are equally at home in both types of seminars.
