Self Reflection

Learning from Experience

Self-reflection is the act of considering your thoughts and behaviours. It strengthens your resilience as you learn from your experiences.

You never stop learning, adapting, and changing your approaches, and part of this process involves reflecting on opinions, values, and beliefs to better understand your experiences and actions.

Reflection is an internal process but reflective writing can formalise this process by:

  • working through your process of reflection;
  • demonstrating how you think and learn;
  • focusing on you and your actions in relation to an incident or situation;
  • think about what you’ve done and how you work.

Why not have a go at this self-reflection tool yourself...

Learning from Experience

Think about an experience or situation where the outcome was not what you wanted. Reflect on the situation, consider how you reacted and decide if you would respond differently next time and why.
