What is reflective thinking and why is it important to a leader?  
Reflective thinking refers to the process of using one’s knowledge, values, ethical principals, emotions, and past experiences to clarify the meaning of a current or past event. A leader’s experiences (successes, failures, etc.) are mentally cataloged and retrieved upon his/her reflection to resolve new problems or understand new situations. This process enhances a leader’s decision making because he/she can internally explore and evaluate different alternatives to a problem by reflecting on his/her past experiences, lessons learned, knowledge, values, etc. Reflective thinking allows an individual to recollect relevant events with deeper understanding of its relationships and its connection to other experiences and concepts.
