Reflective and Reflexive Practice Sessions

Reflection and reflexion

This bimonthly series is led by EMCC Global Master Practitioner Catherine Marissiaux and EMCC Global Senior Practitioner Anne Berthelin on behalf of EMCC Global Accreditation.

Reflective and Reflexive (R&R) Practice is a key element of EMCC Global accreditation – and this series is a key resource for practitioners looking to accredit their practice as well as those working towards future levels or maintaining their current practice level.

The bimonthly sessions on Zoom will invite participants to look at different models for reflection and reflexion, before breaking out into small groups to practice.

This is an immersive session with the expectation that participants will be able to engage fully in both plenary and in any breakout groups, with camera and microphone on. There is no NBR (no breakout room) option for this series and apart from the explanation of the model, it will not be recorded.

Each session will be repeated – one occurrence in English and one in French. Everyone attending will have the option to use Zoom translated captions, this means that irrespective of the spoken language, people will be able to read automatically translated captions at the bottom of their screens.


Practice working with the STARR reflection model

In this session of R&R practice, we will experiment with the STARR model, which is widely known and used in different professional fields all around the world.

We will first share inputs about what ‘Reflective and Reflexive practice’ is exactly. We hear and read a lot about it, but do we really know what it covers?

The first part of the session will focus on clarifying ‘Reflection and Reflexive practice’, which is the core of the journey for a coach/mentor/leader coach interested in accreditation and /or professional continuous development.

The second part of the session will be a live experimentation of the STARR model with your hosts Catherine  Marissiaux (EIA MP) and Anne Berthelin (EIA SP, ESIA). You will practice the reflection model in small breakout rooms and share your learning outcomes and ways to enrich your practice with all participants.

The first session of the day, 2024 March 18th, 9.30am CET, will be in English.

The second session of the same day, 2024 March 18th, 6.00pm CET, will be in French.

The STARR model helps to effectively evaluate past experiences (reflection on action), identify areas for improvement, and plan for future professional development (reflection for action).

The STARR is an acronym for Situation, Task, Action, Result, and Reflection.


Dans cette deuxième session de pratique “Reflective & Réflexive”, nous expérimenterons le modèle STARR qui est largement connu et utilisé dans différents domaines professionnels à travers le monde.

Nous partagerons d’abord des informations sur ce qu’est exactement l’approche réflexive.

Nous entendons et lisons beaucoup de choses à ce sujet, mais savons-nous vraiment ce que cela recouvre ?

La première partie de la session se concentrera sur la clarification de la pratique réflexive, qui est au cœur du parcours d’un coach / mentor / leader coach intéressé par l’accréditation et / ou le développement professionnel continu.

La deuxième partie de la session sera une expérimentation en direct du modèle STARR avec vos hôtes Catherine Marissiaux (EIA MP) et Anne Berthelin (EIA SP, ESIA). Vous pratiquerez le modèle de réflexion en sous-groupes , puis partagerez vos apprentissages et moyens d’enrichir votre pratique avec tous les participants.

Le modèle STARR permet d’évaluer efficacement les expériences passées (réflexion sur l’action), d’identifier les domaines à améliorer et de planifier le développement professionnel futur (réflexion pour l’action).

Le modèle STARR est un acronyme pour Situation, Tâche, Action, Résultat et Réflexion.
