“People Don't Learn From Experience” — J. Edward Deming

 What is Reflection?

1. The mental process that allow you to monitor your behavior to determine what's working and what's not (see story below).

2. The way we monitor practice to keep improving it.

3. A 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. Something very powerful but rarely taught. 

Learning reflection in this online course you will help you to:

  • No make the same mistake over and over again,
  • Optimize important behaviors, and
  • Allow smarter practice,

Bottom line: Reflection is a learnable method to determine what's working and what's not. It's a way of not doing the same thing, the same way; but always expect better results (The classic definition of managerial insanity).

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

An On-Line Class

The Dual Track Coaching In a Full Class

Individualized instruction — start any time. One meets with your assigned master instructor at the beginning, weekly during delivery, and at the end. 

Each module takes two weeks to complete. The first week is dedicated to reading and understanding the content. The second week to focused practice and reflection on what was learned.

This is coaching with a difference. The focus is on skill building and the ability to apply theory.  

The Instructor-Led Full Class

This is just like taking a regular on-line class at a university. The focus in on expertise, knowing and understanding.
