Is there anything called "De-learning" really ? If yes, how it works? Is it really necessary for re-learning ?
Well , in professional arena it's a buzz word used frequently, when an organisation goes for rolling out new strategy or process , it faces lot of difficulties (as people are change averse) and training consultants talks that people need to de-learn old things to re-learn new things.
My supplementary questions alongwith questions of premise are
1) Even if scientifically true , does de-learning applies only to adult ?
2) What kind of changes in brain happens that makes learning new skills a delayed process?
3) Or its just a mere attitudinal problem.
4) My understanding is that we seldom use the whole capacity of our brain , then why delearning is necessary for re-learning ?
