Self-Assessment Without Judgement
We know we need to analyze our work but many of us struggle to talk about our work without becoming self-critical so we just don’t do it. Or maybe we avoid conversations with our teams about the work because we can’t reflect without “the committee” in our heads beating us up. In this workshop we will discuss why it’s important to routinely assess your work, how to separate yourself from your work, and ideas for what to look for when assessing your work. We’ll end with some self-assessment practice.
As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Articulate why it is important to reflect on and assess our work
- Describe at least 3 ways to separate yourself from your work
- List at least 10 skills you could look for when assessing your work
- Demonstrate how to assess your own work using practice stimulus and your phone
