  8. Immediate Colleagues Wider Networks You

  9. Learning Styles

  10. The Learning Cycle and Learning Styles Experience Activists Testing out / trying things out in new situations Pragmatists Observation Reflectors Drawing conclusions and forming generalisations Theorists Lewin 1950s Kolb, Honey and Mumford 1980s

  11. Activists • Flexible and open minded • Keen to have a go • Happy to enter new situations • Optimistic about anything new • Tend to embrace change Questions Activists Ask Will I learn something new? Will I have to sit down for too long? Will I have a chance to DO things and have FUN Will there be other people like me?

  12. Activists • Tendency to take the immediately obvious action • Can take unnecessary risks • May do too much themselves / hog the limelight • Rush into action without enough preparation • Get bored with implementation / consolidation

  13. Reflectors • Careful and thoughtful • Thorough and methodical • Good at listening to others • Rarely jump to conclusions Questions Reflectors ask Will there be time to think about things? Will there be plenty of information available? Will there be opportunities to listen to other people and get a variety of views? Will I be pressured to respond too quickly?

  14. Reflectors • May hold back from participation • Take time to make up their minds and reach a decision • Cautious / risk adverse • Lack assertiveness

  15. Theorists • Logical ‘vertical’ thinkers • Rational and objective • Good at asking probing questions • Disciplined approach Questions Theorists ask Is there a clear structure and purpose to the event? Will I be able to ask lots of questions? Will there be complex ideas that will stretch me? Are the approaches and information used rigorous and valid?

  16. Theorists • Low tolerance for uncertainty, disorder and ambiguity • Weak lateral thinkers • Not keen on subjectivity or intuition

  17. Pragmatists • Keen to test things out in practice • Practical, down to earth, realistic • Business-like – get straight to the point • Likes tools and techniques Questions Pragmatists Ask Will we be engaging with real issues? Will there be lots of practical ideas and tools to use? Will there be time to practise and experiment? Can I apply the learning to the problems I face now?

  18. Pragmatists • Tend to reject things without an obvious application • May seize on the first solution • Not too keen on theory / impatient with ‘waffle’ • Tend to be task orientation rather than people orientated

  29. Action • Prioritise organisations and individuals to get to know • Review what you have to offer and what do you want • Consider how to go about this – what fits in with your personal style and ethics…. and theirs? attend a meeting, join a committee, work on a project, ask to shadow, ask to be mentee, offer to be a mentor, meet for coffee or lunch……
