Few questions to help your reflection –
What was the situation?
Who was the person involved?
How did I respond?
What was the impact on the person?
What was my assumption about his/her intention?
Which expectation of mine did it not meet?
What do I know about their competence in this area?
What does my response tell me about my competence?
How could I have responded with greater responsibility & empathy?
