C. Individualize Formal Training To Fit The Employee’s Learning Style - Motivation Theory

  1. Individuals process, internalize, and remember new and difficult material differently. Therefore, effective formal training should be individualized to the learning style of the employee.

  2. Some examples of different learning styles include reading, watching, listening, and participating.

  3. You can translate these styles into different learning methods.

  • Readers should be given books or other reading material to review.

  • Watchers should get the opportunity to observe modeling of the new skills.

  • Listeners will benefit from hearing.

  • Participants will benefit most from experiential opportunities.

4. These different learning styles are not mutually exclusive.

5. If you know the preferred style of an employee, you can design his/her formal training program to optimize this preference.
