Module 1: Learning to Learn

The world is constantly changing. Technology advancement is making many products’ life cycle very short. Frequent organisational and job restructuring will bring about constant adjustment and relearning. Consequently, people have to learn to cope with rapid changes. Learning is an on-going and active activity. People must want to reinvent themselves to excel in a rapidly changing environment. Failure to adapt to the changing requirements of organisations will ultimately lead to obsolescence of skills, low productivity and a stressful work life.

It has been said that you cannot teach a person anything, you can only make him want to learn.
