Although there are plenty of benefits to discovering the wide world of learning styles, actually applying them can be difficult.
Leaders can find ways for everyone in the room to simultaneously use their learning styles — whether by breaking their team into subgroups based on their learning style or creating individual activities catered to someone’s particular learning style.
Further, helping others reach their full potential through their learning styles lets them become familiar with who they are. This increase in self-awareness may not ensure success for everyone, but it may help them understand themselves and shape their own leadership style one day.
Applying learning styles can also ensure collaborative success for leaders and the people they lead — now and in the future. They can respectfully differ from others. For example, even though they may opt for learning through activities, they may also understand that others within their group don’t feel the same way. They should be encouraged to find ways to fuse the group’s various learning styles within one experience. From there, they’ll be more prepared to lead team projects, tackle assignments or even pursue a leadership career themselves.
