#027: How reflective practice helps you find your Marigold

It's so hard to find a mentor who get's this!

Have you ever had a bad day and wished that there was someone (a someone who would be completely NON judgemental) you could share what happened with? Even if it was just to get a different perspective let alone some advice?

Is there someone at your site who lights you up, who you feel comfortable with? Someone who it’s easy to talk to? Is there someone who saps your energy, someone who makes you feel like there’s no point to this anyway?  

Sounds like you’ve met some walnut trees and you’re in need of some marigolds..

It's time to find your Marigold!

This podcast is inspired by a blog post written and shared on the cult of pedagogy blog.  If you’re wondering what on earth a flower has to do with reflective practice and professional growth then let me tell you!

You’ll find the link to the full blog below in the further reading section.  I totally recommend that you read it.  In fact I’d love to hear what it helps you to connect with when you’re done.  Let us know in the comments section below.

In this episode I’m going to share with you my take-aways from reading this post.  I’ll also show you how regularly reflecting on your practice means that you can attract (and be a marigold).  

If you’re someone who would love to know how to surround yourself with the right people.  The people who are going to do nothing but lift you up and help you grow, then this one is for you.
