    What is Reflection?

    It's a way of not doing the same thing, the same way; but always expecting better results (the classic definition of managerial insanity). It is a:

    1. Mental process allowing you to monitor your behavior.

    2. Method for determining what's working and what's not. 

    3. Way to monitor practice to keep improving it.

    4. Learned process accelerating the drive to mastery.

    It's true, most people DON'T LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE and they practice a skill, but SHOW NO IMPROVEMENT OR SLOW IMPROVEMENT. The reason why? They don't use reflection. At very powerful technique that's rarely taught in universities (see story below)

    Learning reflection in this online course will help you to:

    • Not make the same mistake again,
    • Learn from experience, and
    • Enhance practice,

    Reflection is a learnable method to determine what's working and what's not.

    A Personal Story On The Importance of Reflection

    To my lasting regret, understanding of reflection came much too late in life. What happened was this.

    When I was 52 years old, I accidentally learned about reflection. I happened to be sitting in a lecture at Korea University in Seoul. The course delved into world religions and this particular lecture dealt with Buddhism.

    The professor mentioned that Buddhism had a long tradition of learning through reflection. This aroused me from my normal state of lethargic mindlessness and I asked the professor, “What is reflection exactly?”

    She replied that it was a mental process where you periodically step back and think about an experience and then figure out what went well and what could have gone better. And then she said, “The school of life teaches; but only if you are willing to reflect on experience.”

    Here I was, a creature of the university. Much of my life was spent in a library with my nose in the textbook or in a state of confusion reading scholarly research journals. And yet, I had never been exposed to one of the most valuable tools of learning ever.  — Murray Johannsen, Course Developer & Instructor

      Programs With Flexibility Designed In

      You might say, expertise requires memorization; skill development requires practice; and mastery requires real effort. But whatever level of learning you want, we follow a process (see below). Discover how the classes (and the modules within them) are organized.

      Opportunities For Leaders

      Smart people up there game before they need to play. This is, those on the fast track prepare themselves ahead of time for greater responsibility.  When the door of opportunity opens, they are ready to step through it. You may want to:

        • Prosper as a team leader. A tough role to play. Typically, you have all the responsibilities of a supervisor with none of the authority.
        • Get your ducks in a row — be a project manager. Leadership is important here since one (ideally) can evolve the group into a team.
        • Prepare to be a supervisor. It's long been known, supervisors don't lose that job because of lack of technical skills, they lack people skills.
        • Hop onto the fast track. Most organizations (although they won't say so) have identified a pool to promote quickly.  

      Options For Individual Learning

      Take a Self-paced Course

      . You have the freedom work get it done when you want.

      Take any Public Program as they come up. A nice way to meet others who are also interested in what you are interested in.

      Get Coaching on the Dual Track. Take a module (there are many) and strive to master it in 30-days.
      Access Customized Learning. We have subject matter experts who can put together something designed uniquely for you in the areas of:
      Leadership,

      Skill mastery, and

      Digital marketing. 


      Human Resource or Training Manager

      Organizations have different delivery options.  For groups this includes: on-line, blended or even live training (we bring the instructor to you). Either on an individual class or as a cohort basis. 

      One can also choose whether you want the coaching necessary to develop skills or would rather focus on skills. 

      Rather than develop a class (an expensive proposition), you can

      • License one or more in a series, and 
      • Use the courseware with your own trainers or ours.
