Reflecting upon Oneself was one of the focal themes of the Youth Leadership Development Programme (YLDP) organised by COEJ on 2nd and 3rd August in Milton Keynes.
The two-day YLDP was a step in encouraging the youth of the community towards the implementation of the verse from the Qur'an, "Do they not reflect upon themselves (even once)?" from Chapter 30, verse 8. The programme was designed to inspire the youth to delve into the secrets of their personalities and invite them to ponder over their characteristics and their interactions in the hope to be better individuals and leaders.
Both days began with a reflection of a Qur'anic verse followed by the respective topics for each day; exploring aspects of one's personality such as the expansion of the comfort zone, the iceberg theory and the different types of temperaments and interactions.
