Editor’s note: I think this is a great read and is very timely as organisations and L&D teams look to do things differently. The message of this article is that feelings cloud our judgement no matter how expert we are on a subject. What’s more ‘motivated reasoning’ can lead us to think through a topic in order that we reach a particular conclusion. We need to recognise the impact of emotions on the decisions we make and to pause for thought before responding.
Editor’s note: This short video explains a theory of learning that describes how we learn and the role of emotion in that. This concept will change the way you think about L&D provision.
