Let’s Talk ..... Learning from Experience
Time & Location
About The Event
“We don’t learn from experience; we learn from reflecting on experience”
New experiences are one of the most powerful sources of personal growth and learning. But experience alone doesn’t necessarily lead to learning; deliberate reflection on experience is essential. It’s through reflection that we make sense of new experiences, identify the lessons learned – and turn insights into action and change. Many of us have good intentions about reflecting on our practice but often find it difficult to maintain the discipline; and in the current situation we’re often so distracted and stretched that we miss opportunities for learning.
This short virtual workshop is an opportunity to remind yourself about the range of approaches you could be using to reflect and learn from experience individually and with others. We’ll look at some of the barriers to useful reflection and at one possible way to overcome them – through a process of peer group consultation.
What you can expect:
- Insights into the principles, benefits and practice of reflection for leaders
- A space to discuss with like minded colleagues the power and potential of reflection for your development
- An introduction to the Peer Consultation process as a way of overcoming some of the barriers to reflection
