“We do not learn from experience… we learn from reflecting on experience.”
― John Dewey
When we reflect, we improve. Reflection is essential to growth in any aspect of life. Slowing down, observing, thinking, receiving feedback, processing feedback are crucial elements of reflection. Engaging in the practices of Mindfulness help us reflect effectively. As educators or executives, we don’t often have the opportunity and/or time to engage in these elements of reflection. Working with a coach allows time for reflection and intentional processing.
