Putting Your Reflections into Action

Second in a two-part series introducing a ‘reflective conversation,’ a six-component model proposed by Gilbert and Trudel. This resource investigates how you can start a reflective conversation to put your reflections into action

Reflection is not always as simple as it sounds. Coaches can invest a lot of thought into reflecting without always producing action to improve their coaching practice. 

A ‘reflective conversation’ is a six-component model proposed by Gilbert and Trudel (2001). It can be used to identify worthwhile topics of reflection and help you adopt a reflective process to try out new ideas. 

Gilbert and Trudel’s (2001) model of reflection:

  1. Coaching issues
  2. Role frame
  3. Problem setting
  4. Strategy generation
  5. Experimentation
  6. Evaluation
