Group Dynamics: The Shortcut to Change

By Simon 10 months ago

So, without even realising it, you adopt similar behaviour to the other people in your group. When you apply this concept to learning, that’s when the magic happens. You want to do what everyone else is doing in order to achieve a particular objective. You eventually find that you adopt similar behaviour to get you to where you want to be.
