Evolution of the Master/slave
Several years ago a small group of Masters joined together to discuss issues of common interest.
question that arose was how to evaluate our personal progress as Masters.
our discussions there arose a conviction that, despite our personal diversity
in how we organized our own Policies and Procedures, there was much about
our journeys as Masters that we could identify as being held in common.
The notion of identifying a set of Milestones common to most Masters began to take hold of us. We hoped that if such Milestones could be identified they would to be a useful to tool for both experienced and novice Masters.
Masters with whom we discussed our efforts asked to be kept apprised of
we conferred we came to feel there was a need to re-invigorate the notion
of peer recognition, Master to Master, of individual accomplishments.
We felt there was a need to offer educational opportunities specifically linked to the identified Milestones.
And, we asked ourselves, who would meet these needs?
answer was, as it so often is, if not us, then who?
Thus was born the Master/slave
The Milestones for Masters - A Self-Assessment Grid
It is understood by us all that the Milestones are NOT posited as a universally applicable, one-size fits all roadmap for all Masters.
For some it might prove useful and for those it is understood that they will address the Milestones in the order that makes sense to them within the context of their individual journeys.
We know that of those Masters who decide to use the tool, some will address all the Milestones and some will address only those they deem relevant to their journey.
It is also clear that Masters will dedicate greater effort to those Milestones that they find to be pertinent to their development and put little or no effort into others.
Filling out the Grid is private and personal and remains that way unless the Master wishes to make the results known.
