Further, it covers the strategies that are used in order to address the areas in which development can be made.
Gibbs Reflective Cycle
This can be determined as model that is helpful to explore a situation that can be used with some other for coaching (Gibbs Reflective Cycle, 2013). In this context, there are five steps that are involved and they are as follows:
Description: This can be defined as a stage in which one identifies the issues that are faced within the groups. In this context, I have identified that I lack of proper communication skills and die to this I fail to develop strong relationship with other due to which there is ineffective coordination. Further, due to ineffective communication I fail to know other and this also raised miscommunication.

This was helpful to make sure that member within the groups get to know each other and interaction can be raised.
Greenaway’s Reflective Cycle
This is another model for self-reflective and it is helpful enough to identify and take appropriate steps with the help of which problem can be solved (Greenaway’s Reflective Cycle. 2014). In this context, there are three steps involved and they are as follows:
Do: This can be determined as experience that I have with the groups and the personal skills that I possess. As per the analysis made, it has been identified that I lack communication skills. This is helpful enough to make sure that there is proper coordination. When there is interaction, then individuals get to learn from each other the skills and capabilities that others possess. However, this is the only area in which I lack and it important to make sure that this area can be improved.

Due to lack of communication skills, I am not able to understand the guidance or the roles that are provided to by others. In this context, it can be stated that this area should be improved.
Plan: In order to achieve and develop communication skills, I will get classes and take help from my team members so that they will be able to help me in identifying the areas in which improvement needs to be made. Further, to raise the interaction level, there will be informal meeting conducted so that each members get to know other and proper coordination can be raised.
