Reflection and Mindfulness in Organizations: Rationales and Possibilities for Integration

Abstract : The notion of reflection has featured strongly in Management Learning in recent years. While there is an important body of knowledge on how organizations can foster reflection-on-action, less seems to be known about how they can promote refl ectionin-action. We suggest that refl ection-in-action is closely linked to the phenomenon of mindfulness and we outline what existing research on mindfulness may teach us about understanding and organizing refl ection-in-action. We believe that integrating the perspectives taken in these two streams of literature is important for a clear understanding of why some organizations seem to learn 'better' than others and why some initiatives to promote reflection and learning are more successful than others.
