I know the PowerPoint show was awhile ago, but I recently started to assist with creating slideshows for training and wanted to get some feedback on the way my department does its training.
Occasionally our department rolls out a new procedure which involves a task on the computer system and need to train the employees how complete the new task. Example: Submitting a daily widget report.
My manager is a "Sensing" type on the Myers-Briggs personality matrix, whereas I am an "Intuative" type. This creates a conflict of how we should train a new procedure. A death-by-powerpoint of 100 slides with a new slide for each new option really rubs my personality the wrong way, but I don't want to loose the "Sensing" learner types with a general overview. Obviously, I know I can't jump up and down and say "NO! NO! NO!"
However, as a side-bar in a 2003 survey I found, S types are found in 66-74% of the popluation, whereas N types are only found in 26-34% of the population. So, did I answer my own question?
I would appreciate any feedback on this, since I'm still developing my teaching style. When we do wider trainings, I can defintely pick out the Ns as they are bored and the Ss sometimes don't connect all the dots.
