Since the core of human resource development is the self, the final test of the effectiveness of HRD efforts is the changes that take place in a person. These changes include improved self-understanding and self-confidence, higher motiv-ation (taking initiative, perseverance, meaningful relationships, etc.), impact making, optimising and belief that one can shape most of one's destiny. Part II of this book focuses on several aspects of personal and interpersonal orientation. The various chapters in this part briefly discuss conceptual models relevant to the instruments in this part.
