Nearly every action we take is as a result of past learning; yet for most people, learning still remains an activity associated with an educational context. As babies we learnt to eat, gain attention, crawl, walk, etc. and as we develop into children our bodies become more functional, we learn an inordinate range of skills
Learning involves thinking, but a bit more than thinking: it involves the entire personality - senses, feelings, intuition, beliefs, values and will. Learning needs to meet some personal need and recognising and identifying such needs enables us to evaluate whether the learning has been worthwhile and successful.
Key Principles of Learning:
i. Teams learn best when they are treated with respect ii. Learning opportunities should, when possible, be linked to previous positive experience iii. Where possible learners should take part in the planning of learning activities iv. Teams learn best when learning is interactive and fun v. Interaction with a facilitator is vital vi. Learning activities and/or delivery need to be varied vii. Instant rewards help viii. Self-evaluation and reflective practice is critical
The PACT Learning Cycle
The PACT learning cycle stages are: i. Procure. New knowledge (theory) or ability (skill) is acquired ii. Apply. The new knowledge or skill is then practiced in some way iii. Consider. The results of the practice are evaluated and/or assessed iv. Transform. The original knowledge or ability is modified accordingly

If you were choking, would you rather your friends try to learn the Heimlich manoeuvre right then and there or would you prefer that they already had training and practice doing it? Training is proactive. It keeps your company healthy and prepared no matter what crisis arises. If you don't train, you force everyone to be reactive, so your chances for survival decreases.
