Why The Problem With Learning Is Unlearning
This article https://hbr.org/2016/11/why-the-problem-with-learning-is-unlearning resonated with me because it touches, on so many levels, what we frequently discuss on Safetyrisk.net. For instance, his model for unlearning is:
First, you have to recognize that the old mental model is no longer relevant or effective.
Second, you need to find or create a new model that can better achieve your goals.
Third, you need to ingrain the new mental habits.
These sounds very much like the typical discussion here, for example:
First, you need to recognise that Zero Harm is not effective and should therefore not be relevant any longer.
Second, you need to find a model that humanises and includes human fallibility.
Third, you need to keep on discussing the new model, refine it, critique it and start making it part of your life.
