Description Reflection is a necessary component in learning to regulate opinion, feelings, and actions. Reflection links experience and knowledge by providing an opportunity to explore areas of concern in a critical way and to make adjustments based on these reflections (Knowles Z., Tyler G., 2006). I will be using the Gibbs G (1988) Learning by Doing: A guide to teaching and learning methods (Davies S., 2012). For this assignment, we were asked to conduct coaching sessions in groups of three with our colleagues for two months and draft a reflective essay on our experience. I hope this reflective essay will help me understand the in-depth concepts of coaching while helping me interact and respond better to people in different situations.
Self-monitoring is the extent to which people try to control the way they present themselves to others. High self-monitoring is a trait that pertains to my personality.

“Critical Thinking enables you to see beyond, not judge, cultural norms and learn how to understand other factors that can influence decision-making.” (Regan) Having empathy and understanding is very important to have effective teamwork and leadership. Another advantage of using critical thinking is gaining enhanced communication. Critical thinking teaches you to analyze and build your evidence for any given premise, which ends up making you a more effective communicator. When communicating a proposal or idea proficiently, you need to have consistent and relevant points to support your theory. A fourth advantage to using a critical thinking is decision making becomes a lot easier.
Reflection also involves drawing forth cognitive and emotional information from several sources: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile. To reflect, we must act upon and process the information, synthesizing and evaluating the data. In the end, reflecting also means applying what we 've learned to contexts beyond the original situations in which we learned something.

Being self-aware of one’s self is important because it shows that you are able to identify what needs to be improved on, and being able to action. How I would be able to do is with the help of metacognitive thinking. Metacognitive thinking is the process of being aware of one’s thought process, and being able to understand it. Some metacognitive strategies are to reflect on your thoughts and actions, self-evaluate it, and plan what to do next. For example, if one of the criteria I was lacking in was being able to communicate properly with people, the first thing I would ask myself is, “what did I do this school year?
Self-assessment is the process of analyzing ourselves to evaluate the factors that are important to achieve goals in our lives. (Sedikides, 1993). It can be used to improve the certainty of one’s self-knowledge, and also, to know about the uncertainty parts of one’s life. The importance of self-assessment analysis is that it enhances one’s ability to gain control over oneself in the gray areas of life. Self-awareness is having a deep understanding of one’s emotions, strengths, weaknesses, needs and drives.
Having a better sense of myself will help me to communicate with others more effectively, and will guide me to utilize my strengths and weaknesses in the workplace. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Personality Test The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, constructed by Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, is based on the conceptual theory by Carl Jung. This theory is based on the idea that people experience the world using four factors: how we interact with our surroundings and derive our energy (introverted vs. extraverted); how we see the world and process information (observant vs. intuitive); how we make decisions and cope with emotions (thinking vs. feeling); and how we live our lives (judging vs. prospecting). There are sixteen different personality types based on these four factors. I discovered that I am an ENTJ after taking the test.
