Gibbs Reflective Cycle
I have chosen the theme of my reflection as time management, problem-solving and
effective communication for reflecting on my experience. I had chosen this theme because
since the beginning of the project until the time when I was removed from the team by our
team lead I had been facing many problems. Communication issues, group conflicts and time
management problems had occurred during my project. I have selected the Gibbs reflective
model because it accurately explains my experience, what were my feelings, about what did I
feel was good and bad in my experience, why did I think so (Boud, Keogh and Walker 2013).
In Gibb's model, we also give a future action that through the experience what have I learned
and how can I apply my learning from experience in future. The reflection would have
changed if I had used the Bortons model of thinking because it discusses and focuses on only
three aspects – what, so what and what next (Skinner and Mitchell 2016). This model has an
approach to developing knowledge and does not show if it can be applied in future. Learning
through reflection is important because when we determine it is reflected in our actions. I can
incorporate all the skills that I have learned in my future assignments and challenges.
Description
Our program leaders who will be dividing us into teams with a team leader called us
in room 208 for project allocation. I was part of a team, but I went to the restroom after
informing my teammate about the same, the assignment had taken place until then. When I
returned, I felt terrible because the team I was in had thought that I was not interested in
being a part of them and so I had left. I was put into a group with totally new people with
whom I had never worked before. I did not like the idea of working with this new group
initially, but then I thought it would give me an opportunity to learn new things. We decided
for our first meeting on 20.02.19. Where we discussed our research and what methods can be

incorporated. The next meeting was agreed on 22.02.19, which did not take place. Then again
on 26.02.19, the meeting was cancelled. This made me feel that no one was taking the
meeting seriously and all along I felt that my point of view was avoided and when finally the
group had arrived at a decision I was not a part of it. When I decided to raise my voice, my
team leader removed me from the team. I applied conflict resolution technique to resolve the
conflict.
Feelings
At the beginning of the project allocation, I felt outraged when one of my teammates
had forgotten to convey my absence from the allocation, and as a result, I was sent to a team
with new people. After becoming a part of the team, I felt very insecure because I did not
know anyone. Initially, when the meetings occurred, everyone was serious since we were
discussing the topic and the research methods. Gradually the meeting stopped taking place
because no one was present so I felt like only I was interested in the project and the learning
contract and no one was interested at all. When the meeting finally took place I felt like my
point of view was appointed as one of the members was continuously interrupting me. The
team had taken up many decisions without informing me that made me feel ignored and as if
I they did not consider me as a member. A few members even treated the project as theirs.
When I raised my voice against all these matters, my team leader decided to remove me
without also consulting the program leader. After the completion of my project, I felt
delighted because I had finally learned about teamwork and that conflicts are essential in a
group for understanding each other.
Evaluation
I also felt perfect that we have moved to the performing stage of Tuckman by using
the Kilmann model. I also felt excellent because my opinion was included in the project.
