The 4-Mat system
The basic premise of the 4-Mat system is that we all have different learning styles. Some people are motivated by Why? questions. They want to know why they are listening to this talk. Others by What? questions; they want information…and probably lots of it! The How? people want to get on and do an exercise, get their hands on it and try it. Then there are the What if? people who want to know how this material applies to their life, workplace or environment.
Which one are you?
If you are going to teach the 4-Mat (or any learning style), mixed in with this, you’ll need some humour, good metaphors (opened loops are the best), and an ability to manage the energy of the room whilst staying connected to the whole group simultaneously.
Sound easy? It can be with a little practice and a good teacher.
Of course we have a product I am proud of to assist you in being an excellent Presenting skills, NLP style trainer!
