❂ Reflection for Resilience ✤

❂ Reflection for Resilience ✤ | Leadership | Scoop.it

 

Resiliency is about handling stress, uncertainty and setbacks well — in other words, maintaining equilibrium under pressure.

 

And in our modern lives, whether we are at school, at work, or at home, there is no shortage of pressure.

 

Maintaining our equilibrium is something, it seems, we all need these days.

 

There is something you can do — everyday if you would like — to help build your resilience, your capacity to weather stressful events.

 

It's journalling.

 

Keeping a journal can foster resiliency.

 

CCL recommends using "learning journals" or "reflection journals" as tools for gaining insight into your leadership experiences.

 

The process of writing and reflection builds self-awareness, encourages learning and opens the door to adaptability.

 

The form and content of your journal is a matter of individual choice. However, when you do sit down to make a journal entry about an experience that has challenged your equilibrium, we recommend it have three parts:

 

 

✤ The event or experience.

Describe what occurred as objectively as possible.

Don't use judgmental language.

Stick to the facts.

What happened?

Who was involved?

When did it happen?

Where did it happen?

 

 

✤ Your reaction.

Describe your reaction to the event as factually and objectively as possible.

What did you want to do in response to the event?

What did you actually do?

What were your thoughts?

What were your feelings?

 

 

✤ The lessons.

Think about the experience and your reaction to it.

What did you learn from the event and from your reaction to it?

Did the event suggest a development need you should address?

Do you see a pattern in your reactions?

Did you react differently than in the past during similar experiences and does that suggest you are making progress or backsliding on a valuable leadership competency?

 

 

So remember, capture the event or experience in objective language, describe your reaction, then note the lessons you might get from it.

 

CCL uses journaling as part of almost all our leadership development program experiences and we emphasize with our participants that learning doesn't come from the "doing" but in the "reflecting on the doing."

Roger Sommerville's curator insight, February 18, 2014 2:44 AM

I find it hard to spend the time on making a journal work. I suspect it is because I have not thought about resilience and reaction to situations. The short lists here provide a useful guide - and by focusing on my reaction I can give my self a chance to use demanding events/situations more productively.

Hay que hacer un adecuado balance entre las políticas de favorecer el acceso a educación de excelencia de grupos con desventajas y minorías étnicas y el impacto en la calidad de la investigación y en la propia formación, que ello pueda producir. Ambas cosas nos son excluyentes si las políticas son implementadas con criterios de calidad académica y no solamente con criterios políticos cortoplacistas.

I chose this article because it explores ways to mitigate adversity and nourish personal stregnth such as:

*developing caring relationships

*setting high expectations

*creating opportunities to participatate and contribute

This supports the importance of developing "soft skills" in leaders to help them become effective.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 19, 2015 8:31 PM

Resilience is believing in what you do and even when it gets so hard and you feel so defeated, you just don’t give up. It is believing that you can rise above and achieve something in the face of disaster, disappointment and struggle. Resilience is needed in education or you will not survive. Each day you spend in school building, you carry the hopes and dreams of your students. You also carry their tragedies and trauma. Why do we do this every day over and over again? Because we are believers. We are resilient and we know we hold the potential to change lives and promote success in all of our students.
