Reflection On Gibbs Reflective Cycle

Improved Essays
The last and for me the most interesting course of our MBA program was “Creative Problem Solving and Consultancy Project” because actually, we were working on real projects that had been taken from business.

I am very glad to say that our group never had to deal with any …show more content…
I think we all provided leadership in different ways. Fatma, being a manager, obviously has experience as a leader and it definitely showed. She was great at keeping the atmosphere of our group relaxed but also knowing when to remind us that we had work to do. Volodimir is a person who’s easy to follow because he has such a calming way that he carries himself. He is an honest, caring, smart person and this makes him a natural leader. Because of my experience in finance and accounting I have had experience both being a leader and being around good

    In other group situations, I often find myself in a leadership position, however the clearly defined lead person in our group was Jen. Jen had many good leadership qualities, so it was easy to follow her direction. I liked that she was enthusiastic and the way she led the group was conducive to getting a lot done.
