How to Improve Your Learning Ability
Nigel Paine, author of The Learning Challenge, discusses new research about the brain and emphasizes that, in order to change someone's behaviour, their brain needs time to process the information it learns. He also shares that the fitter we are and the more we are encouraged to continue learning, the more productive we will be.
- Stressed brains don't learn - therefore you have to create stress-free environments for people
- Brains like multi-media stimulation more than they like one medium
- Brains like to work together - people work and learn better if there is sharing and collegiality
- Brains like to process - they need time to think and reflect and move a skill or competency into behaviour
