a pictographic is their nirvana. If you are a visual learner, try to take classes that incorporate lots of visuals, such as charts and graphics, as this will allow you to more easily see the relationships between concepts and ideas. You will want to con-sider classes that move at a good pace and to avoid those that are centered around textbooks or written material. Daus, You Know? FAST START We are only a couple months into 2017 and have already passed the $350 million sales volume mark. Having the $267 million Key Tower deal close in January not only provided a great head start but gives us a decent shot to hit the elusive $1 billion mark this year. –AP speak slowly, make decisions in a delib-erate manner and use all of their senses to help them process new informa-tion, including sight, sound and feel. Kinesthetic learners prefer to learn by doing – they put the “hands” in hands-on and a live cooking class is their nirvana. If you are a kinesthetic learner, you should try to find opportunities that built around role play or offer the opportunity to actively participate and move around. Classes that involve group activities and case examples that are discussed and solved are also benefi-cial. You will want to avoid classes that are based on self-study. The good news is that most education programs recognize that not everyone learns in the same way. As a result, classes will often use a mix of delivery Auditory learner The second type of learner is an audi-tory learner. You are in this camp if you speak in a measured manner, tend to listen as much as you speak, organize your thoughts in a linear progression and prefer to have things explained in spoken words rather than in written instruc-tions. Auditory learners process new ideas by listening and then verbalizing – Rosetta Stone is their nirvana. If you are an auditory learner, you should seek out well-spoken lecturers or recorded material. Classes that are delivered as an organized conversation are best, espe-cially if the format allows opportunities to ask questions and recite information. You will want to avoid classes that rely primarily on active participation, such as a role play class. styles in order to accommodate the vari-ety of learning styles for the students. For example, there may be lecture, a reading assignment, some infographics and a hands-on case study all included as a part of a class. Modern curriculums typically follow a framework called the active training credo: When I hear, I forget. When I hear and see, I remember a little. When I hear, see and discuss, I begin to under-stand. When I hear, see, discuss and do, I acquire knowledge. And when I teach another, I master. If you are thinking about taking a class, try to get a feel for how the mate-rial is going to be delivered. Ask to see a class outline or teaching schedule and try to choose classes that best match with your particular learning style. Spending some time investigating upfront may not help you find the Thundergun but should help you get the most out of edu-cational opportunities.

If you prefer information to be provided in writing, love using lists, take copious notes and like to receive written outlines or summaries, you are this type of learner. A read-write learner wants the opportunity to read and write in any form – a library is their nirvana. The good news is that most traditional classes are structured in a manner that is right in the wheel house for a read-write learner. Think back on the majority of your high school and/or college courses and you’ll understand what I mean. If you are a read-write learner, you should try to find these types of traditional-format classes that focus on material that is read, either in textbook/manuals or online, and assignments that are writ-ten. Classes that offer written quizzes and/or multiple choice exams are also helpful. You will want to avoid classes that are based on webinars or are other-wise visually oriented. ͙͙͔͔Ž†”‡…•˜‹ŽŽ‡‘ƒ†ǡ&#0c;†’‡†‡…‡ǡŠ‹‘͕͕͗͘͘Ǧ͖͕͚Ǥ͚͖͘Ǥ͚͔͔͘’Š‘‡͖͕͚Ǥ͚͖͘Ǥ͚͔͕͘ˆƒš ‘‡”…‹ƒŽƬ&#0c;†—•–”‹ƒŽ •„‡•–‘•Ƭ&#0f;‡ƒ†„ƒ–‡‡– ˜‹”‘‡–ƒŽȀ‹–‡‡‡†‹ƒ–‹‘ &#1a;ƒ–‡”ƒƒ‰‡Ž‡ƒǦ’ &#0a;‡‡”ƒŽ‹‘”ƒ†‡•&#0f;ƒ„‘” ‡Ž‡…–‹˜‡‡‘Ž‹–‹‘ ‘…”‡–‡ƒ™‹‰Ƭ”‹ŽŽ‹‰ Ž‘‘”‘˜‡”‹‰‡‘˜ƒŽ &#0b;Ž‡ƒ‹‰ ‹”‡•–‘’’‹‰ &#0a;”‘—†
