How can we better make use of reflection in our practice?

Our September 25 program featured Grady McGonagill of McGonagill Associates on “Reflection on Practice: Moving Competence to Mastery”. Through small and whole group discussion, those attending gained new insights into model building and how it can be used to enhance one’s practice of organizational development. We gained new ideas and a new focus for understanding and aligning our abilities and values, expanding the deepening the scope of our practice, and having that practice naturally reflect what we are.

Reflection is one of the most important skills for OD practitioners but is rarely given the attention it deserves. This program was thus a very valuable learning on which reflective follow-up is particular appropriate. Whether you were there or not, we invite your ideas on how reflection can make us better practitioners.
