Tips and Tricks about my MBA experience

As you may know, we all have different learning styles. In order to cover them all in a letter/document/training material, the following 4 points should be developed, as explained in the blog cited below:

“Why” learners
“Why” learners wants to know why they should care – why they should be learning this, why it is important, why focus on it now. So start your explanation with this.
“What” learners
“What” learners want the facts without a lot of fluff. Give them an outline, documentation, or step-by-step processes. They like working with people who come to the conversation prepared, so having an agenda is useful. The bottom line for them is “What do I need to know?”
“How does it work” learners
“How” learners need to see the relationship between what they are learning and the big picture. They want to see the relationships and connections with between the new information and what they already know. Give them context and show how what you are teaching them is similar to something they already understand or know how to do.
“What if” learners
“What if” learners will want to discuss the alternatives with you. They’ll ask questions about why it is done the way you outline and whether another way is better. They need to understand the boundaries and the issues that were considered in making the decision to do it this way. They can be a little frustrating to teach because they seem to veer into unrelated areas and have a hard time staying on topic. But this is how they learn. You need to allow them to ask a few questions and let them roll around the possibilities in their heads. They may give you some creative ideas you never would have thought of.
