Remember those days in school when you struggled with learning a new subject. Sitting next to you was someone who seemingly understood every word and couldn’t wait to hear more. What the heck? Why the difference? It could be the subject matter itself, or it could be the way you like to learn.
The next time you attend a workshop or seminar, keep in mind how you approach learning. Here’s how…
- If you prefer to see the schedule or agenda, you may be more subjective than objective. You want to know what you are going to be asked to learn. D Style learners may even challenge the training and reset time spent on things they perceive as unimportant and mundane.
- The I Style is open to new ideas and theories. They like to be entertained and enjoy hands-on activities. Discussions, role plays are great if they are fast-paced and short duration. Learning in a group just makes it more fun!
- If you prefer learning step-by-step and have the opportunity to practice, then you are often the most receptive to learning any subject. S Style learners learn best when they have an opportunity to observe, practice and ask questions to become comfortable with a new process or procedure.
- C Style learners want to know as much as possible about a topic or subject. They prefer following an agenda and staying on schedule. Make sure you give facts and data to support content and expectations of the subject matter. They want to make certain they understand what they are asked to learn.
