It encourages you to find ways of testing out your assumptions and discover if there is more that you could do or learn to improve and develop in your chosen career. Journaling, video recording with playback and reflecting team supervision are explained as opportunities to process and monitor your practice, along with easy-to-use templates to record your progress.
