MetadataShow full item record
What is the significance of group reflection? This chapter attempts to answer the question by describing a qualitative intervention in which managers from different work sectors reflect together on their everyday relational work situations and practices in a supervised setting. Findings indicate that group reflections enable individual actors to move inward via identity processes such as increased awareness of one’s own emotions and increased awareness of one’s boundaries. Consequently, working with values in group reflections is an approach to constructing self-identity. Participants also seem to move forward, gaining courage and strength from the managerial group reflection to implement new value-related actions. Thus, performing values work through group reflection can be an approach to cultivating relational agency. Such engagement may contribute to better organisational practices.
