The Monthly Reflection Template

Monthly-Update-Template

There are several formats that Forums use to do their monthly reflection. No one way is the correct way, and your Forum will collectively decide on the best set of reflective questions that work for your group and desired outcome.But every monthly update tends to cover these sections:

OVERALL

  • What one word would best summarize everything that happened in your life over the past 30 days?
  • Why did you choose that word?

NEEDS/LEADS

NEED – What’s one quick need that the group could help you with? This could be suggestions for a place to vacation, lawyer names, books, etc.

LEAD – What’s one quick lead that you could offer to the group? This could be a book you read, a new app, a quote, a class you took, a show you watched, etc.

Then, there is a section on goals, but I’ll save that for another post.
