'Human Development and the Theater of Everyday Life' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 8, 2017

We have created the reality in which we find ourselves-its inhumanities, its imbalances, its glorious aspects. And by observing the reality we have created, by seeing the impact we have on others and on the physical and biological environment, we give ourselves feedback on who and what we are. We discover ourselves in what we observe, and with this discovery comes the opportunity to make more of ourselves. It is a developmental process: self-recognition, self-assessment, and, if need be, self-change. Human Development and the Theater of Everyday Life provides the ethics for self change, and for organizational change, as well.
