Reflective Practice is a theory by which modern and traditional self-improvement ideas can be more clearly defined, refined, expanded, adapted, taught, adopted and applied, for the purposes of personal development, teaching and coaching, and wider organisational improvement. Reflective Practice enables clearer thinking, and reduces our tendencies towards emotional bias.
These Workplace Reflective Practice training course materials are suitable for anyone within an organisation and will assist the participants in improving their working practices and increasing business performance. Whether on the shop floor or in head office, everyone could benefit from the principles within this training.

Enhance the self-development skills of your employees to help ensure business success
The process of Reflective Practice has many advantages. It means, as professionals, your employees are keeping up-to-date with the latest thinking and methodologies.
