More about Faiszah Abdul Hamid
In our daily life and work, we function based on the mental models have learnt from past experiences and education. However, there may come a time where our mental models become outdated or even obsolete. In order to stay ahead, we need unlearn our old ways of thinking and functioning.
When we learn, we add new skills or knowledge into our current way thinking and doing. When we unlearn, we choose to step out of our old ways and adopt a different way of thinking, doing and behaving altogether.
The process of unlearning is challenging, yet how is it especially important in the humanitarian field?
