Turning Reflective Practice on its Head:
Moving From "Close in" to "Far Out"
The capacity to reflect on experience is a central aspect of successful leadership and reflective practice is a crucial element of leader development and organizational life. Coming to us with over a dozen years of teaching reflective practice at New York University’s Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and other settings, we welcome Ellen Schall and Angela Hendrix Terry for a lively presentation and discussion about what it takes to go from insight to behavior change, moving from the intimacy of the classroom to reflective practice in the larger arena. How do we extend the reach, and move the teaching of reflective practice from “close in” to “far out?”
We invite you to join us in an exploration of these issues at the 13th Annual ISPSO New York Regional Meeting on Saturday, October 18 from 9:00am to 5:00pm at the William Alanson White Institute, 20 West 74th St., New York City.
Ellen and Angela will present their ideas based on their highly successful course during Saturday morning. In the afternoon, participants are invited to bring cases from their own experience for peer group discussions, linking to ideas stimulated from the morning session. We will conclude with a large group exploration of the themes from the day.
We will begin the weekend with an ISPSO members-only cocktail hour on Friday evening from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the home of committee member Patrick Perkins (Upper East Side), followed by an informal dinner at a nearby restaurant. The meeting will formally end Saturday with a wine and cheese reception followed by an informal local dinner for anyone interested in further collegiality and discussion on Saturday evening.
The registration form is attached (see below) along with a program description and presenter biographies. The Saturday meeting is open to non-ISPSO members. Please encourage any interested non-members you know to join us.
