“I really enjoyed the <LTL> course. The Learning styles exercise was particularly enlightening. So much so that I got Andy to give me a spare copy. Then I asked my wife to complete it that evening, so that I could try and understand her a little better! 🙂 The learning styles piece is great for my own self-awareness and to make me conscious/aware of why other people may react differently in a meeting/course etc.

Plus, to better understand the team who work for me and how I may need to tailor my approach with them off the back of it – The way I do it is probably indicative of how I would want to learn, rather than how they would best take things in. The mind mapping was also great and is something I have occasionally used in the past but having seen how to do it properly, something I will use more.

Finally, Keepers and triggers – I have already started to note down the room, who’s there, who I’m next to, weather etc. Habits – not incorporated any of these into my work life but certainly have done at home and got myself a trigger to make sure they are linked.”
