coaching skills
Using learning styles helps to focus the individual on how best to allocate their learning time within their
personal planner. But using learning styles have a wider remit:
Why are learning styles important?
Information about learning styles are important to both the trainer and the individual learner for the
following reasons:

Trainees who learn about their preferred learning styles become better learners. Knowledge about their
learning styles generates a more positive attitude towards their training programme, greater self-
confidence, and more skill when it comes to applying new found knowledge back at work.


Information about learning styles can assist trainers in getting the most out of poorly prepared or poorly motivated trainees. Trainers with an understanding of their trainees learning styles are better able to adapt their learning methods to individual needs. Information about learning styles can help trainers to become more sensitive to the differences which trainees bring to the learning environment. Trainers who introduce a variety of learning methods into their programmes are more likely to provide usable opportunities for a group of trainees with varied learning styles and thereby motivate and enthuse them all.

Training Managers

Without learning styles information low satisfaction or poor performance in a planned learning experience,
or particular course activity, may be misinterpreted as lack of ability, or motivation, (by the trainer or
trainee or both) when it may in fact be the trainees difficulty in fitting their learning styles to the
programmes learning methods.

Information about participants learning styles can serve as a guide to the design of effective on the job
learning experiences, i.e., learning styles drive learning methods selection.

1a) Auditory - listening
I prefer to follow verbal instructions rather than written ones.
I find it comfortable to add spoken numbers mentally.
1b) Visual - seeing, reading and visualising
I score high on tests that depend on reading comprehension.
I can read formulas and understand them.
I prefer maps to verbal directions when I am trying to find a place.
1c) Kinesthetics - moving, touching, writing and doing
When I write things down, it clarifies my thoughts.
I have to manipulate formulas in order to understand them.
I like to draw pictures.
I am good at using my hands. I enjoy lab classes.
2) The Two Reasoning Types
2a) Deductive reasoning
I like to look at the big picture first, then get the details.
When learning a new game, I like to know all the rules before playing.
In an argument, I state my premises first, then draw conclusions.
2b) Inductive reasoning
I like to see some examples when first learning a new subject, before developing an
I prefer to learn the rules of a new game "as we go along".
