Using AAR (After Action Review) in Leadership Reflection and Coaching Supervision

Carroll (2009) talks about how one can use AAR in coaching supervision or in leadership reflection (coaching). The AAR is a learning methodology devised by the American military as a way of learning from doing. The method and experience is anchored around the use of the following questions:

  • What did you set out to do?
  • What happened?
  • What went well?
  • What went badly?
  • What have you learned?
  • What will you do differently?

The AAR provides a useful structure and process for coaching supervision and leadership reflection (executive coaching). Its strength is that we learn from doing and allow experience itself to become our teacher.
