Setting aside time for intentional reflection boosts productivity by 23%
Do you have a reflection practice in place?
Very few of us take the time for self-reflection, especially when more immediate tasks demand our attention. Even fewer companies prompt employees to reflect on past work — and use lessons learned to inform the future. The problem? Without reflection, we get stuck in untested and unconscious patterns that are not serving us — and we never stop long enough to find a better way.
However, new research on the connection between reflection and improved performance is encouraging company leaders around the world to create dedicated “reflection time” for their people. In fact, research shows that the process of reflection boosts the performance of each employee by an average of 23%. Reflection also has the power to shift our attitudes, so that we enter back into familiar environments – like our workplaces – with fresh solutions to problems.
Don’t know how to develop a reflection process for yourself or your company?
Join us on December 8th – individually or as a team – for a research-based, proven reflection process with Executive Coach & Consultant Deb Palmer George. We’ll gather in Wellspire’s inspirational lounge with a community of like-minded individuals with a shared goal: To start 2018 refreshed, with practices that move us toward our vision.
In this workshop, each attendee will:
- Wrap up 2017 constructively, acknowledging what worked & learning from challenges
- Practice “Appreciative Inquiry” — a strengths-based approach for analyzing, planning & adapting change
- Develop a strengths-based plan for 2018
