If you want to understand how to build reflection as a valued part of daily operations – this ebook is written for you.

What’s in it for you?

“Experience followed by reflection is a powerful catalyst to learning and growth,” says Eszter Meszaros, Senior Learning Experience Designer at Insitu.

“Reflection also helps to build richer cognitive structures in the brain leading to deeper learning and understanding. And reflection can also push your organisation forward by helping your workforce to learn more effectively and boosting their performance.”

How can reflection help a business?

Any organisation that seeks success and growth must be adaptable and be able to learn, unlearn and relearn. To be adaptable requires an understanding of cause and effect and the ability to plan new approaches.

“We know that reflection is a powerful way to help individuals to grow and become more capable in their roles and contribute to the success of the business,” says Martyn Bull, Creative Director at Insitu.

“But we also know that for reflection to be a crucial part of everyday business life, it is important to make sure that reflection doesn’t get stuck in a silo, is regular, and has relevant, actionable outcomes. We wrote the ebook to be a handbook and a guidebook on how to make reflection a succeess.”

So, business agility, combined with lifelong learning and an active reflective culture, must be the bread and butter of any organisation aiming to thrive in today’s fast changing, economically challenging climate.
