Master the After Action Review (AAR) to improve the outcome of any personal or professional activity. From the beginning of time, humans have survived and thrived by learning from their experiences - both good and bad - and then tweaked their actions for better results next time. This continual quest for improvement stems from the difference between ´´what was´´ and ´´what could be´´. Even if we´re not consciously aware of it, we´re constantly seeking improvement in this very same way. If we turn to this analysis in a more intentional and methodical way, with an eye towards continuous improvement (CI), then next time around, the outcomes can be more rewarding and desirable. After Action Review (AAR) is a continuous improvement approach for reflecting on the work of a group or team. Learn how to apply both informal and formal AAR approaches. Along with a complete walk-through, the audiobook includes resources and materials you can use in your work right now. For example, the Group Insights template will help you distinguish ´´likes´´ from ´´wishes´´, and the Planning Template will show you how to optimize the time spent during the AAR. Chapter one covers basic facilitation skills needed to conduct an AAR including active listening, questioning, information gathering and analysis, public speaking, presenting, intervening, and managing group dynamics. Chapter two explains the AAR in detail including its value proposition and frameworks. Chapter three explores the informal AAR, and chapter four the formal AAR. 1. Language: English.

This is a book on decluttering. Are you always giving up? Are you always quitting half way through? Do you make up your mind but once again here you are stuck and can´t seem to go forward? If you answer yes to any of these questions, this book is for you. Why people give up on a goal is explored in detail with strategies to get back on track. It follows on from the previous book to equip listeners with physical and mental tools to not only understand the psychological reasons for quitting, but to develop real skills to recognize and accept the inner demotivators and move on from there. It covers methods to replace old habits with new ones; setting achievable goals (with a template to break down goal objectives); and methods to remain motivated no matter how hard it is to achieve a goal. This book is not just for those who want to declutter, but for anybody who has a problem following through on goals. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chrystianna Robinson.
