 "Reflective practice is the ability to reflect on one's actions so as to engage in a process of continuous learning" Donald Schon 

 

What Is Reflective Practice?

Reflective practice is a process used by leaders, managers, researchers, and those who work in professions like law, accountancy, healthcare, and architecture. It is a way to solve problems as by learning from real life experiences. Strategically ponder on encounters with others (e.g. peers, clients, friends), explore how these worked, and discover unexpected lessons and insights to expand your personal and professional life.

Over time many disciplines have advocated for the principles of reflective practice as part of continuous development. You can use reflective contemplation when learning, for example when you are thinking something you are reading or watching, or an experience you are going through. It is also really useful to expand who you are as a human being. It helps you to think about what you want to do next, reflect on your life and relationships, and identify unexpected learnings from the past and present as you step into the future. 

Reflection is a very personal thing and different people define it in different ways. It is important to remember that there is no one 'right' way of explaining what reflection is, or how it is done. A lot depends on your own circumstances and context. Our aim is to provide you with suggestions so you can also become a reflective practitioner.

Why Reflective Being?

I'm Dr. Saiyyidah (say-ee-dah) and I love reflective practice :-) I've been doing it for over two decades since I trained as an Architect! I use and train others to be a reflective being in my practice as a leadership coach, a belonging, diversity and inclusion facilitator and trainer, and in practical theology and research.

Coaches and professionals who have worked with me report that they are more self-aware, confident, and effective. They report that their satisfaction with life (increase of 98%), productivity (87% improvement), and feel calmer (100%). I used reflective process as a method for my PhD in identity, belonging, and, inclusion.
