Reflective practice (RP) is ”a process that allows practitioners to reflect on their own knowledge, ideas, experience and values that impact on their action.” (Jude & Regan, 2010). By doing so, group members have the opportunity to become aware of their own intentions and behaviours and the impact that these are having on the team and its effectiveness.
Our approach has been widely effective in international and multidisciplinary environments due to its holistic and inclusive nature. Through our experience we have learned that generic approaches of ‘one size fits all’ have limited penetration. We tailor our method to effectively respond to organisational and group needs by using diverse theoretical and practical successful models.
In a safe & empowering space RP participants are invited to give account of their practice including their challenges, opportunities and successes, ‘gut feelings’ and the individual experiences which are often neglected in favour of objectivity, certainty, biases and truth/facts. This acknowledgment leads to openness, effective dialogue, more confidence and a process of learning and integration that is beneficial to all the members for future best practice.
RP can be seen as similar to non managerial supervision and does not directly address or resolve operational and managerial functions within an organisation. It can also be used to ensure the implementation and effectiveness of training.
The process impacts on multiple levels including:
- personal development: individuals developing new qualities,
- professional development: developing new skills & knowledge &
- organisational development & effectiveness: coherent culture, high standards of practice and effectiveness.
