“Follow effective action with quiet reflection.  From the quiet reflection, will come even more effective action.”

Peter Drucker 

When people find out I work with entrepreneurs, CEOs and senior executives, they often ask me who are the toughest people to work with?

The answer is not what you might expect (big egos, know-it alls, alpha males/females).

The toughest people to work with are the ones who don’t want to dig deep and do the work to get better. And a key part of that digging deep is the openness and willingness to reflect on themselves.

Reflection for many is very challenging.

Why?

Because people:

– Are too busy doing things to stop and really think, it’s easier to keep moving.

– Are too sensitive to seeing where they need to improve

– Don’t know how to reflect

– Aren’t willing to challenge how they see things or admit they may be wrong

Recent research in US call centres, showed that employees who spent 15 minutes at the end of the day reflecting about lessons learned performed 23% better after 10 days than those who did not reflect.

In my experience, you can increase that % the higher up you go in an organisation. If you think about it, that’s a lot of sales and profit being left on the table for many companies. And when ou extend it into your life the value could be incalculable (health, relationships, fulfilment)

We’re coming up to the mid-year point of 2017. A super and natural time to block off some time to reflect on your journey so far this year.

A powerful action this week would be to block off 1 hour and spend some time reflecting – the questions below will definitely help in that.

  • How are you doing against your main goals so far?
  • What do you need to change?
  • What’s working well for you?
  • What have been your wins?
  • What are your challenges?
  • What are your lessons learned?

Food for thought!
