Self-reflection helps to capture learnings & insights and with practice, can help us respond and create more positive future outcomes. Self-reflection gives us a break from the particulars, and the focus to sort through experiences with quality attention, to capture insights, consider other viewpoints, and learn from the experience. These learnings turn into knowledge, which can then be applied to our future experiences. We can consciously practice desirable mindsets (growth), actions and outcomes. These insights are fundamental to our lifelong learning journey.

How much time is wasted in meetings that fail to meet the purpose? You spend valuable time and money when your group comes together for a meeting or activity.
