This is a book about personal mastery for school leaders and their students. It references an ongoing concern about reflection in learning, education, and human development. Innumerable ideas and concepts about this have been advanced in the past; most claim more than they can deliver. The notes and reflections on personal mastery presented here are not intended to be yet another version of such traditional treatments. Rather, this book looks at personal mastery from a new perspective and considers it as the result of self-empowered education and practice.
‘‘Know thyself’’, a phrase inscribed on the temple of Apollo at Delphi, is often amended to the Aristotelian imperative “and become what you are’’. Oscar Wilde made the remark that over the portal of the new world shall be written “Be Thyself“. The book of Rolf Arnold gives a short, but elaborated guidance, on how we can find out our self – concept and how we can become and be what we are. It is scientifically deep-rooted and practically very beneficial. A masterpiece.
