Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle is a theory that helps us understand how people think about their actions and their consequences. The theory consists of three stages: pre-reflective, reflective, and post-reflective. In the pre-reflective stage, we are unconscious of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In the reflective stage, we have an awareness of our thoughts and feelings but not necessarily a conscious awareness of our behaviors. In the post-reflective stage, we are conscious that our thoughts and feelings are being changed by our behaviors. Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle can be applied to all sorts of situations in life - from personal relationships to business or social interactions.
