Prevent Burnout with Self Reflection

Why Self Reflection

The beginning of the calendar year is, oftentimes, prime time for business teams to plan for the coming year. We look back at the previous year’s learnings, evaluate where we are now, and try to project out what the coming year may look like. But how often do we leaders practice self reflection in the same way?

Self-reflection helps us ground ourselves in the lives we want to lead as individuals, not just as leaders within an organization. It provides us with a structured opportunity to receive feedback from the people we trust while continuing to build our trusting relationships with them.
This week, I’d like to challenge you to take the necessary steps to reflect beyond your next steps as a business; I want you reflect on your past, present, and future as a leader. Check out the video for tips on beginning the reflection process, and download my accompanying Wheel of Life worksheet. If you have any other questions, shoot me an email! I’m always happy to help.
