What is reflection and why do it?

Consciously looking back on past experiences, thoughts and ways of doing things can bring meaning to the present and the future. This is reflection.

Reflection can challenge attitudes and beliefs, enhance understanding, and inform decisions and actions, allowing you and your workforce to:

  • identify patterns and opportunities for learning
  • gain more learning from individual experiences
  • monitor progress
  • set the right goals and objectives
  • develop self-awareness

And experience, followed by reflection, is a powerful catalyst to learning and growth.

So, with reflection, any organisation seeking success and growth can be adaptable and be able to learn, unlearn and relearn.

3 steps to success

How to build reflection into your business

With just 3 steps you will be able to build a reflective culture that works well for your organisation.

Step 1: Nail the big picture and make sure it’s crystal clear

If the bigger picture isn’t motivating to your workforce, then no matter how elaborate and thoughtful your reflection activities are, they won’t put in the time and effort.

Step 2: Encourage reflection activities with multiple touchpoints

Expand reflection activities over multiple touchpoints, rather than assigning single, one-time reflection activities. You will raise the bar on accountability, and the result will be deeper learning and more inclusion.

Step 3: Focus on the experience

Make sure that reflection activities are easy to focus on, enjoyable and fulfilling to complete. It will help your people to remain engaged and get the most benefit.
