The Holistic Development Model provides a way to help us see from the whole. The INSPIRATIONAL core centre of the model is an easier area for Christians to understand . What lies are our core - our spiritual identity and beliefs as Christians From this we can see how important the oft neglected space of BEING is How Christian Faith is being lived out in us personally? To what extent are we experiencing a sense of belonging and support? Then we look at How our faith informs our work – our DOING Both our vocation - then the outward expression of this in our lives – the awareness of our particular strengths, gifts, talents – our passion our capability. Innovation/Communication. And the area in which we are called to serve. The outer circle of the model helps us to locate these qualities in the REALITY of our life.

What effect does this have on me and my work? Would we make better decisions if we took more time to reflect on what we are doing and why? Self – Others Do we have a good balance between getting things done and noticing how people are feeling? Do I often resent the demands of others?Can I easily speak from my viewpoint, or do the force of others and the culture prevent this?Am I always rebelling, or always swept along by others? Inspiration –Reality Does my ambition get in the way of helping others? Do I feel uplifted at work? How much am I alone ? Does my work make me feel hopeful about the future?
