How often do you wonder not just about what happened but why it happened and how it differs from other happenings? This topic introduces the importance of reflection in managerial work.
Reflection is about getting the meaning from everyday experiences. Managers may too easily allow ‘doing’ to drive out ‘thinking’ and ‘thinking’ might miss out on the clues provided by feelings and intuition. By bringing conscious awareness into the moment, the result will be more informed, effective action for the future.
The objectives for this topic are to:
- Learn from your own experiences and the experiences of others through reflection.
- Appreciate the importance of collective and individual reflection in managerial work.
- Find ways to combine managerial reflection and action.
