  5. “Observe all men; thy self most” Benjamin Franklin

  6. How did you get here? • Career choice? • Pharmacy school? • Professional practice position(s)? • Current practice?

  7. Random versus Intentional • Although it may feel that you arrived here in a random fashion, who you are, how you think, feel, perceive, work, “do what you do” is a result of how you are “hardwired.” • You may not have chosen pharmacy deliberately, but being in this profession is not completely by chance.

  8. Model for Choice

  9. Self-Awareness • The ability to examine and reflect on personal knowledge, skills, abilities, beliefs, biases, motivation, and emotions that could enhance or limit personal and professional growth

  10. How Self-Aware are You? • Take a blank piece of paper and answer the following question: • On a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being lowest and 5 being highest, how would you rate your CURRENT self-awareness? • Why did you rate yourself at that level?

  11. Why Reflect? • Action: • Reflection enables you to focus your thoughts and discover what you are actually thinking and feeling. • Application: • It’s all about what you are learning from your experiences and how you can use them to develop.

  12. Processes for Optimal Reflection • Focus on strengths & acknowledge weaknesses • Seek out new opportunities • Get uncomfortable everyday and challenge yourself to learn something new • Share your ideas & plans; allow others to provide you with feedback • Develop achievable goals & set new goals when you reach them • Track progress & celebrate success • Key take-away - Recognize your growth & acknowledge your development

  13. Why is this important and relevant to pharmacy practice?
