"We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience" (John Dewey)
My new focus for 2020 is to develop reflective practice skills in the sector. Reflective practice means thinking about, or reflecting on what you do.
It is closely linked to the concept of learning from experience, in that you think about what you did, and what happened, and decide from that what you would do differently next time. Reflective practice at work can be a group activity where a team looks at experiences together, or it can be used by individuals as a very useful skill for personal and career development. It is an excellent tool for promoting resilience in the workplace,
The toolkit I have designed has many applications and can support staff appraisals and supervision, committee self-assurance and team building.
I can travel to your venue to deliver day and half day sessions. No two sessions are the same- I use my skills and knowledge to work with the issues that matter to you. I also offer a range of housing law, policy and essential skills courses and seminars.

“ The whole team benefited from Jane’s very informative training session on Reflective Practice in Housing. Everyone found it easy to contribute and we are now equipped with tools that will allow us to reflect on difficult situations that happen at work or at home, and learn how to deal with them effectively to ensure a more positive outcome in the future. We are looking forward to exploring this further at team meetings.”
