Developing a Reflective Practice -
What are you noticing? (Incorporating Kegan and Lahey’s acclaimed ‘Immunity to Change’ process)
Workshop Facilitator: Noel E K Tan
A workshop for Leaders, Facilitators & others who work with groups
How do we build a discipline of continuous learning as practitioners? Through the work of Donald Schon, Chris Argyris and other luminaries, Reflective Practice has been revealed as a highly essential and effective process for professional development. (The International Association of Facilitators also identifies the ability to reflect on practice as an essential facilitation competency)
Often, what passes as reflection is the result of single-loop learning - a focus on improving our problem-solving by looking primarily at the connection between our actions and their consequences. Hence, this workshop offers us a guided opportunity to engage in double-loop learning - a focus on exploring the mental models, beliefs and values that shape the way we define problems and therefore the solutions that we take, thereby making us more effective in learning from experience.
Through this 2-day workshop, participants engage in developing a Reflective Practice and take back a set of reflective practices. A Reflective Practice (capitalised ‘P’) refers to a deliberate discipline of building professional identity and capacity by reflecting on our experiences and actions. ‘Reflective practices’ (small ‘p’) refer to the ‘how-tos’ ie methods and techniques that enable reflection to go deeper and beyond what might just be random and fleeting thoughts.
Our highly interactive workshop will anchor on Theory U as a learning framework. Within this framework, we will utilise Photography, Journalling, Narrative and Visual Practices and Immunity to Change as key processes to harness the power of Metaphor and Word in reflecting-on-action and reflecting-in-action.
Due to the nature of the programme, group size is limited to 12 persons.
