Reflections for self-insight and growth

Reflections for self-insight and growth

posted in: News | 0

It is important to look in the mirror every now and then because reflections offer self-insight that help to ensure growth. Organizations are the best environment in the world to help people realize their potential. Reflections offer the employee and organization the opportunity to regularly evaluate and make plans for the future. You can use reflections to record your own progress and ask for feedback from the manager. They can also serve as a starting point for the 1:1 conversation.

Fishing in the same pond

There is a lot of movement in the labor market. You see on LinkedIn one announcement after another of a new job. This is nice if they come to work for you and annoying if the departure is undesirable for you. 

Did you know that main reasons for leaving are that employees feel too little appreciation and a lack of a clear purpose to which they can contribute.

The reservoir of available talents has almost dried up. Current employees are given ‘fantastic’ opportunities by recruitment agencies and they are promised golden mountains.

How do you ensure that the available talent wants to come and work for you and that the back door remains closed and you continue to captivate and bind the employees because committed and motivated employees perform better, are  more loyal and are sick less often.

Feedback and communication

You can captivate and bind employees through feedback and communication are important because this contributes to a positive working climate, a good working atmosphere and self-confidence of the individual team members. Feedback and communication promote team performance, business results and prevent dropouts and absenteeism. Set a fixed rhythm to improve feedback and communication in the organization This can be done weekly by organizing short check-ins or based on a self-chosen rhythm.

By sharing information, giving feedback and applying positive communication, you create motivated and committed employees.

You can easily start with this by regularly looking back with the employee how things went, what ambition the employee has and where the organization can facilitate. So look in the mirror regularly and this is what they call reflecting.

The progress is recorded in the automatically created reflection. Share the reflection with the manager to validate the skills and goal.

Use the reflection for the 1:1 conversations between the professional and the manager. As a result, structure is added to the development conversations and everyone speaks the same language.
