Excerpts from the soon to be released book, “Good Business…Bad Business” by Robert Singer and Rick Segel.
Good Business — Understand that different people learn in different ways
Bad Business — Not appreciating the other person’s learning style
Everyone learns in a different style. Some people are auditory or they learn from hearing. Some are visual learners, while others have to do it themselves known as callisthenic learning. If someone learns from hearing and you consistently send them emails of tasks to read and perform you are NOT approaching them in the best style for them.
This is an important concept because it applies in so many different parts of a business. This is for managing, selling, marketing and almost every part of your business that relates to people. Check your worker’s style before you make a mistake and try to teach someone the wrong way.
