Learning & Training
Training for the Sake of Training!
This program has its origins firmly based in a commercial operation. Nothing has been included in the course because it is ‘nice to know’!
Some basic guidelines:
If you have a question – ASK IT WHILE YOU ARE THINKING IT
The course has been designed to provide you with the best chance of succeeding. If you experience ANY difficulty or doubt, LET US KNOW.
We all bring the ‘baggage’ of our past lives and experience with us. All we ask is for an ‘open mind’.
Don’t overthink the situation! A classic example:
What is the Basic Principle that allows an aeroplane to fly?
DON’T IMMEDIATELY LOOK FOR THE DIFFICULT EXPLANATION!
The answer may be more simple than you think……….
Keeping an ‘Open Mind’
…. or the baggage we bring to the party!
The Problem: Four Engineers get in a car, but the car wont start. The Mechanical Engineer says: “It’s a broken starter” The Electrical Engineer says: “Dead Battery” The Chemical Engineer says: “Impurities in the fuel” The IT Engineer says: “Hey guys, I have an idea. How about we all get out of the car and get back in”. We all process information within our frame of reference – and we need to be aware that in many ways. What we are about to learn is a new frame of reference!
