The 4 C’s of Training from the Back of the Room

  1. Connections: The desire to learn – that is, to connect in meaningful ways to the physical environment and everything in it – is innate to the human brain.
  2. Concepts: As your brain immerses itself in learning, it gathers information in all sorts of ways: watching, listening, doing, trial and error, until, over time, it creates mental and physical patterns that will translate into cognition, emotion, and physical action.
  3. Concrete Practice: This step goes hand-in-hand with the one before it. As the brain learns new information, it immediately begins the trial-and-error application of that information to the physical world.
  4. Conclusions: Throughout the entire learning process, the brain assesses what it has learned and how it can use the new learning in its own life. The new learning gets folded into the old, and new cognitive, emotional, and physical patterns emerge.
