Life experiences will have contributed to a number of personal blocks to learning, which we may or may not be aware of. Similarly, organisational experiences and changes will have contributed to structural and cultural blocks to learning within the workplace. Once we have identified these blocks we can make choices on what to do about them.

Use this training activity to help participants recognise situations when they do not learn and to identify the personal and organisational blocks that get in the way of learning. It shows them how to consider ways to overcome some of their own blocks to learning.

Who is it for: This training activity is intended for use by trainers to help participants identify personal and organisational blocks to learning and how to overcome their own blocks to learning.
