I upgraded today and this is my upgrade blog
In this blog I will like to share the 4 different ways that a person learns and teaches.
There a 4 different ways that a person learns and teaches! If you understand these 4 learning styles you will be able to impart valuable knowledge and communicate with your customers better. This framework is base on a guy by the name of David Cobb from Harvard University who is an expert of teaching and learning.
If you really master the four learning styles, your knowledge will be so interesting to other people, they will flock to you to seek your knowledge. You will also find you will become incredibly influential, you will be able to persuade other people and you will be able to achieve the results you want and to achieve goals much quicker.
If you don’t learn the four teaching and learning style, you will not be able to impart your knowledge, you will also notice people won’t be attracted to you, they will reject you. You won’t have any influence and you will also find you will basically fail most of the time.
The 4 learning and teaching styles are so different from each other that we have to cover them individually. You have to understand all 4 of them or you will be disconnected from the large percentage of your customers.
The 1st learning style # Ask the question “Why”. Why should I learn this, why do I need this? This group of customers need to be motivated to learn. Unless they know the reason why are they learning, in other words the outcome they are going to get or the pain they are going to avoid, they can’t learn. When you are imparting your knowledge to this set of customers and you did not tell them from the beginning; what is the outcome they are going to get or the pain they are going to avoid, they are never going to be your customers. 1/3rd of people fall in this “Why” learning category style.
The 2nd learning style # Ask the question “What”. What is it? What am I learning? These are the abstract and conceptual thinkers of the world. Most are academics. These are people who want to know the theory, the story, the history, the science and all the trivia about it. The want to know all the systems and the pieces put together.
Tip: If you got a what learning style teaching a bunch of extract, concepts, the philosophy and theory of something but you never said here is why you are going to learn this and what you’re going to get at the end of this and what you’re going to avoid, the why learning style is going to be frustrated the whole time. If you only apply a “what” learning style; a 3rd of your customers are not going to get what they need.
The 3rd learning style # Ask the question “How”. The “How to” learning style. These are inductive learners. They learn by getting the procedure, the recipe, the step by step. Only by taking the action steps is how they get the message. That allows them to understand the “what” and the “why”.
The 4th learning style # Ask the question “What if”. The “What if” is the action learner. They are the entrepreneurs of the world. They want to take it and go out and get the results.
It turns out this is a great formula. What, Why, How, What if; anytime we want to create a concept, self contained group of information, whether it is a paragraph a chapter or a book.
In the beginning we use “Why you have to learn this” and the result you are going to get and the pain you’re going to avoid.
Next “What it is”, is where we give our customers some theory, concepts, some science, some history, some stories and facts and then we give them the “How to” action steps. Finally we give them the “What if” and we say go do this right now, execute and implement these things right now and as a bonus we inform them what to look for, what is the feedback and provide them with solutions to the feedback. Only then we know we are successful in communicating with everyone. This is the formula to create a complete communication and a great Informative and Knowledgeable product.
I hope this helped. Cheers.
