We may be interested in development but how do we develop? And how do we enable the development of others? These are vital questions we take with us into our daily life and work daily. We often become preoccupied with looking outwards for the instruments or tools that we think are essential to helping ourselves and others to develop and grow. These novel podcasts instead remind and strongly affirm to the practitioner that the essential instruments vital to development already reside within us

Through these podcasts, you are invited to look within and not without, to discover and learn how to develop yourself and others. You will discover the ‘self' as an instrument and learn in detail about 4 essential instruments that are vital to development, namely the spirit level, compass, wand and mirror. At the end of this short course, you will understand much more fully how you can be of value to others who come to you for support and guidance and become much more conscious and active in enabling development per se.
