Build a practice of daily reflection to transform your teaching and leadership

Coaches, leaders, and all agents of change need to hone their reflective practices to gain self-awareness and make mindful decisions, so that in turn they can better facilitate reflection with the people they support. Reflection is the best way to bring “sticky” sustainable change . Through reflection, we make intentional choices to achieve the success we desire. Reflection is not an event, not just an activity, but a lifestyle.

In Daily Reflections for Educators, Coaches, Leaders, and Life, respected coach and speaker Constant Hine offers twelve reflective themes for cultivating both personal and professional self-realization and becoming a transformational change agent who helps others do the same. There are 365 entries, one for each day of the year. Each entry features a thought-provoking quotation with a commentary to feed the day’s reflection, followed with a suggestion for reflective practice. Developing a reflective mindset helps us become self-empowered, lifelong problem solvers who create meaningful and fulfilling lives both personally and professionally.

Age Focus: 0–8. Softbound, 400 pgs.

Available April 2024


"Reflection is not something we are taught or valued, as it requires a deep dive into who we are and an unveiling of our thoughts and ideas, with no “correct” answer. It takes time, practice, and a willingness to be vulnerable so we can be stronger and promote intentional awareness of who we are and how our lives affect and are affected by others. I found the power of reflection in Constant’s 365 entries, filled with transformative multidisciplinary quotes and reflective questions that strengthened my ability to become a more conscious and mindful coach, educator, and human! I’m excited to infuse these entries into my ongoing self-reflective journey and draw from them to support others to foster self-awareness, cultural responsiveness, deepened human connection, and humble servant leadership." —Jill McFarren Avilés, founder and director, McFarren Avilés & Associates
